We don’t always take the time to highlight each new product we offer on the Derm Skincare site, but Silagen Acne Scar Spot Correct is one of the most innovative new products we’ve been able to offer. The entire Silagen line of products is unique, but among them, the new acne scar treatment offers a range of exceptional benefits to prevent the development of scar tissue for people with acne, which is especially beneficial for those with deep, painful forms of acne that are prone to scarring. Keep reading to learn more about the Silagen product line in general and the many benefits of Silagen Acne Scar Spot Corrector specifically.

The Silagen Product Line – Everything You Need to Know

Silagen is a skincare line that was meticulously developed to include optimal amounts of active ingredients that deliver the results they promise without causing damage to the skin or overall health. Safer, more effective, and just better skincare products are the goals set by the developers of Silagen, and based on the results of clinical research and patient reviews, they are succeeding! In addition to carefully choosing each ingredient, the developers of Silagen are careful to avoid certain ingredients like dyes and gluten. They utilize organic and plant-based ingredients as much as possible, and Silagen products are not tested on animals.

In addition to being conscientious about their ingredients and the development of their skincare products, the developers worked to ensure the silicone used in Silagen is always safe and non-toxic. In fact, it’s considered safe enough for use in children and adults even those who have sensitive skin. That’s because the researchers who develop Silagen products utilize medical-grade silicone, large polymer molecules, that are specifically tested to ensure biocompatibility. While some topical scar treatments only work on certain types of scars, Silagen products are proven to be effective at improving the appearance of even the most difficult-to-address scars like keloids and hypertrophic scars. Silagen can be used to prevent the formation of scar tissue after a procedure, reduce the appearance of scars immediately after healing, and their product line has even been shown to soften and diminish the noticeability of old scars.

What Makes Acne Scars Unique?

Acne scars typically either develop as atrophic scar tissue, hyperpigmentation, or skin redness. Atrophic scars are indentions in the skin that occur after a blemish damages the outer and/or deep layers of skin tissue. This is also the same kind of scar that develops after chickenpox. Most scar tissue forms on top of the skin. Topical scar treatment products are designed to soften and smooth this type of raised scar tissue. Atrophic scars create an indent in the skin, which can be harder to address with topical treatments. Instead, people often seek out more advanced options like dermal fillers or punch excisions to address this atrophic scar tissue.

Acne scars that cause hyperpigmentation and skin redness are often addressed with potentially harmful ingredients like hydroquinone that lighten skin, leading to a more even skin tone. However, this product can damage surrounding healthy skin, and if used too long, hydroquinone also causes hyperpigmentation. This leaves people seeking out chemical peels, dermabrasion, and other dermatologic treatments to address this aspect of acne scarring.

Introducing the Brand New Silagen Acne Scar Spot Corrector

Acne scars can be tough to treat, and in many cases, topical products aren’t adequate to improve the appearance of these scars. Silagen Acne Scar Spot Corrector has created an innovative topical scar treatment that combines a number of ingredients that are specifically chosen to address the unique complexities of acne scarring. Medical-grade silicone is at the forefront of this product and all of the Silagen scar treatment products. Silicone serves many purposes in wound healing and scar prevention, and it’s been used for decades by plastic surgeons to prevent the formation of scars after treatment. The first purpose is to create a barrier over the wound or scar. This barrier allows the targeted area to breathe while protecting it from potential infection. Bacterial infection can lead to the excess production of collagen as well as leading to redness and inflammation. Silicone protects against infection and regulates collagen production to ensure skin heals fully. The barrier created by silicone also prevents trans-epidermal water loss, ensuring the scar stays moisturized. This leads to the production of softer, smoother, healthier skin.

In addition to silicone, the Silagen Acne Scar Spot Corrector incorporates ingredients geared toward addressing the unique characteristics of acne scars, including:

  • Acetal zingerone – a byproduct of ginger used to stabilize antioxidants like vitamins C and E to increase the benefits of these products.
  • Azelaic acid – a tyrosinase inhibitor that prevents the overproduction of pigment in the skin to keep skin tone even.
  • Bakuchiol – this ingredient is often compared to a retinol in the way it helps increase skin cell turnover and improve texture and pigmentation. However, it doesn’t have the potentially irritating effects related to retinols, making it a better option for many people.
  • Licorice root extract – another tyrosinase inhibitor that also works to reduce inflammation.
  • Vitamins C & E – these two vitamins work synergistically to promote healing as well as provide antioxidant benefits that prevent damage from the sun, pollutants, and other environmental aggressors.

Silagen Acne Scar Spot Corrector is designed to be used during acne breakouts, as long as blemishes are closed, and after a breakout to prevent the formation of acne scars. It can also be utilized to diminish the appearance of existing acne scarring.
