Every year, more than 100 million1 patients develop scars, and around 4 million1 burn scars are caused, 70% on children.
To help people feel comfortable in their skin with scars, SVR has developed its second medical product in compliance with international clinical recommendations: “silicones are recommended as a first line treatment for the initial management of all scars and for the prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars.”2
The formula is highly concentrated in rigorously selected silicones. Its non-greasy, non-sticky gel texture forms a semi-occlusive, invisible film to provide a barrier protection: - Maintains a humid environment that favours scar healing - Immediately soothes and calms itching - Reduces redness and tightness - Reduces and prevents the formation of red, thick, rigid scars - Flattens and smooths scars - Makes scars less visible

How does it work?
The skin is a protective barrier that must absolutely repair itself if it is damaged. The healing process that takes place is divided into three essential stages that overlap in time: the vascular and inflammatory phase, the tissue repair phase and the remodelling phase that can last up to two years. The latter represents the moment when the skin will reorganize itself to acquire its final shape. This stage is therefore essential to determine the final appearance of the scars. This phase can last from several months to several years. If your scar is less than 24 months old you can still take action to improve its appearance. Beyond 2 years, its aspect becomes definitive.
Cicavit DM+ Cicatrices acts during the remodelling phase by creating a humid environment that favours healing.
