Why Strut Scar Cream Works For Scars

Read on

We are huge proponents of our physician and pharmacist formulated Strut Scar Cream and the science behind it.

So, we wanted to break down just what makes our cream so great, piece by piece.

In this article, we will go over some of our favorite features or our scar cream blend and where you can find it.

Silicone gel for a healing base

It’s not very often that the base itself functions almost as its own medication, but that is the case for silicone-based gels for scars.

One study reports applying only a silicone gel to scars produced an 86% reduction in texture, 84% reduction in color, and a 68% reduction in scar height.

We source a silky pharmaceutical grade silicone gel as our base for a pleasant application experience.

Some other great silicone gel scar benefits include:

  • Improved skin hydration
  • Regulation of collagen over-production
  • “Breathable” yet protective barrier against bacteria
  • Breaks down the excess collagen that causes raised scars
  • Reduces scar itching and general discomfort

Triamcinolone for “debulking” scars

For some scars, part of the issue is the scar tissue building up too much.

This overproduction of scar tissue leads to raised or Keloid-type scars.

Topical Triamcinolone has been found to help thin out the skin depth in these overgrown scarred areas, and prevent excess scar tissue formation.

Levocetirizine for itch and inflammation

Levocetirizine is used as a topical antihistamine to tackle the itchy uncomfortable sensation that often comes along with healing scars.

This ingredient also helps blunt the inflammatory response in the scar area to help prevent additional scarring.

Vitamin C for healing and brightening

Topical Vitamin C is used in our scar creams for more than just its part in the healthy healing process.

Vitamin C, or Ascorbic Acid, had been found to help lighten the darkened areas of the skin or “marks” that often come along with the scarring process.

And with the added benefits of being a potent antioxidant, and protecting against photo-aging, this is a key ingredient that may usher in some much-appreciated skin benefits in other areas.

The power is in the combination

The secret to why our compounded combination therapy works so well is choosing ingredients that work together well.

Everyone scars a little bit differently, so we formulated Strut Scar Formula to tackle the multiple facets that make a scar visible - height, inflammation, dark marks, and rough textures.

By addressing the scar with chemicals that all have different mechanisms, the formula is powered up to help pinpoint more issues overall.
