Scars are the physiological healing result of any trauma to the skin where the dermis (deep layer) of the skin has been injured. During the healing process special healing cells called Fibroblasts migrate to the site of injury.
These Fibroblasts cover the damaged area and form collagen which is the building block of scar tissue. Normally, collagen fibers line up in a parallel fashion like spaghetti in a package, forming a bridge across the wound. This collagen material is constantly remodeling for almost two years. Sometime in the first two years, this bridge of collagen tissue will gradually contract and pull the edges of the wound tightly together. This process results in a scar that is flat and very thin. The scar then becomes dormant.
An abnormal scar occurs when too much scar tissue is produced or the collagen fibers lay down in disarray much like cooked spaghetti. These hypertrophic (and keloid) scars are reddish and raised. They can itch and cause pain in the worst cases.
SCARX is an FDA registered product consisting of a unique blend of medical grade silicones. Biologically inert, it is extremely safe to use (usage instructions). It is applied topically to the scar after the skin has closed and is actively healing. Reduction in the size and intensity of the scar is typically observed within 2 weeks.
Medical silicone products have been used for years (see studies) for scar treatment. They are a very successful and well documented therapy in the treatment of scars. Until recently these products were very difficult to use. SCARX gel is an alternative that offers ease of use in a safe effective format. The proposed theoretical mechanism that has evolved in clinical and laboratory studies suggest that SCARX works by causing a favorable shift in the production of growth factors (TGF, FGF) involved in dermal regeneration. This shift reduces the over secretion of collagen. SCARX theoretically regulates the growth factors leading to a reduction in the size and intensity of excessive scars.
SCARX should be used for 12-16 weeks or until changes in the size and intensity of the scar is no longer observed. It should be applied twice a day, morning and evening. Reapplication may be necessary if the area is washed. (see usage instructions)
The standard ½ oz. tube of SCARX can provide up to 300 applications on a three inch scar. The recommended length of treatment is 12-16 weeks with twice a day applications.
Scars actively heal for about two years. During the healing process Fibroblasts cover the damaged area and form collagen which is the building block of scar tissue. Theroretically SCARX is only effective during this two year active period, however we have had customers claim success on older scars.
SCARX is easily tolerated by children and can be worn 24 hours a day. It washes off with soap and water and can be reapplied as soon as the skin is dry.
SCARX is safe for use on the face but should not be put in contact with the eyes or mucous membranes.
There are no known side effects associated with SCARX.
Wash the affected area and pat dry. Gently massage a small amount of the SCARX Gel into the scar and gently wipe away the excess with a tissue until the area is completely dry and no longer tacky. Apply twice daily in the morning and evening. May be covered with cosmetic blush or camouflage.

Vitamin C is essential for collagen biosynthesis. It stimulates collagen synthesis in addition to qualitative changes in the collagen molecule. Vitamin C serves as a co-factor for the enzymes prolysyl and lysyl hydroxylase, the enzymes that are responsible for stabilizing and cross-linking the collagen molecules. Another mechanism by which Vitamin C influences the collagen synthesis is by stimulation of lipid peroxidation, and the product of this process, malondialdehyde, in turn stimulates collagen gene expression.
Vitamin C also directly activates the transcription of collagen synthesis and stabilizes procollagen mRNA, thereby regulating collagen synthesis.[2,3] Signs and symptoms of Scurvy, a deficiency disease of Vitamin C, are due to impaired collagen synthesis. Clinical studies have shown that the topical use of Vitamin C increases collagen production in young as well as aged human skin.[3,4]
No, you can use SCARX as long as you wish, however there is no benefit in using it once you are no longer seeing improvement.
Your scars shouldn’t come back. We recommend you treat your scar until you are no longer seeing improvement and then stop. Your scar won’t get worse.
Our return policy is simple: If you are unhappy with our products, for any reason, we will refund your money for the purchase price, minus shipping charges for a period of three months from the date of purchase.
