Hello everyone,
I just went to the Women's Show in Calgary yesterday and I went to the Dermatix Gel/Glyquin booth. They show pics of people who have tried the Dermatix Si Gel and the results were incredible! Scars and marks were totally transformed! I have some acne scarring and would like to get rid of them. Has anyone tried this product?

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Dermatix C Gel (15 gr)
Dermatix C Gel (15 gr)

Dermatix C is a topical silicone gel with ester C (stable form of vitamin C) that creates an invisible barrier over the damaged area. Under its protection, scar tissue is remodelled and reduced. Dermatix has also been successfully used to manage scars resulting from trauma, burns and surgery.

Replaced by {{11647}}.

Hi, as someone who was prompted to register so I could respond to your question, I would say without a doubt that Dermatix Si Gel changed my life.

I was in a car accident and had a cut to my upper lip between my nostril and lip line which developed into a keloid. I have not noticed that the scar has gotten so much smaller but when I use the gel everyday, I notice that the scar stays small. If I don't use it regularly, my scar grows somewhat.

I hope this helps as Dermatix enabled me to be confident and not as self conscious as I think I would be without something that is working. Definitely worth it.

**Edited to add: If you have an acne scar that is red but healed, Dermatix will make it fade faster. If you have an icepick type scar, I am not sure if this would be an effective product as I don't think it helps stimulate collagen production. Love the product!

Some of you will remember that I underwent some physically altering surgery on Easter Monday. Nearly eight months later, I am very happy with my results, and even more-so with the effectiveness of aforementioned product!

If you haven't seen my photos, know that I am very fair. Boo-boos heal, but they're awfully pink for a while.

I've been using Dermatix SI since the end of April (daily), and though I've not applied it for nearly two months, things are looking very good. Major surgery takes time to recover-from, as do incisions to heal. Mine are nearly reduced to ... slight, barely visible white lines.

Hi people!
I would like to know if Dermatix (Silicone gel in general) is good to acne scar treatment.

Ive heard a lot about this gel; but Im not sure if its going to work in my situation (little holes on my cheek).

Ive just bought Dermatix (here, in Brazil, its called Skimatix).

I hope so!

I have started using it yesterday and will let you all know how I go. I had surgery on my left arm to remove a melanoma two months ago which is around 10cm long, red and bumpy, not a pretty sight.

Hopefully this will make it better.

I was just wondering how your progress is coming along with this product. I am very tempted to purchase it, I have an old chickenpox scar near my eye that bothers me. I have very tan skin, so the scar is a darker brown. Do you think it would work on this type of scar?

Derm. Consultant has today reccommended Dermatix but told me to purchase at local chemist.Daughter has had roaccutane and UVB treatment which worked well but left some scars. Only trouble is it costs 100 over the counter from well known chemist. Can anybody tell me if it is worth it? She needs it for the whole upper half of her bodt so would need quite a lot. I wonder if it is available on NHS.

Unfortunately I don't have any personal feedback on Dermatix but, regarding the price, if you click on the product shot at the top of the thread it will take you to the EDS storefront where it is considerably less expensive.

It is very helpful in reducing the size and obviousness of the scars. However, you have to keep using it for quite a while.

Have you tried it before?

I really do not trust such product right now. Because since half a year ago, I started to use Mederma scar treatment on my leg. My skin felt very very dry at that time, and began to decorticate itself. And, after 4 months, I found that my scar had nothing changed.....

hi I had a baby 6 months ago and got dermatix from the doctor after it was recommended to me, I can confirm that the extensive stretch marks all over my tummy are much much lighter after 1 months use and also less textured, think I read somewhere that you need to use it for at least 2 months! Hope this helps. If you can get it from the dr then do as the tube I get would cost 120!

Would any kind of silicone gel work?

I happen to have some Smashbox silicone primer sitting here and do not use it on my face.

I know that does not contain vitamin C,but I am using other products with vitamins on my skin like Chamomille and Yarrow hydrosols.

I did not realize Dermatix was sold here.
I saw the 30ml size online on a US site for around $50 w free US shipping.

at y local drugstore in ottawa they only had a 15ml size and it was $55.

If I can just get a regular silicone gel it might be useful for me as 15 or 30ml is barely anything for my use.
