Derma-Mend + is a non-prescription, unique topical anhydrous silicone base that can be used alone or with various active prescription ingredients. Designed for scars and other skin conditions, Derma-Mend+ is an ideal choice for use on all types of scar tissue (new and old/keloid scars). It’s infused with unique ingredients and technology, giving it potential healing power, mild penetration, and moisturizing. Derma-Mend+ may be used after surgery or an injury, with the hope of reducing inflammation and buildup of scar tissue, and it may be used on stretch marks. Prescription medications can be added to help with different types of pain/injury caused by scar tissue that has formed over a period of time.

- Older Keloid scars may take more time.
- If new scars or potential scars wait until sutures are removed.
Cost for Derma-Mend+ is about $1.50 per gram. If adding other active ingredients cost increases by about 10% per active ingredient.
