Contrakel

Contrakel: a novel approach addressing scar reduction

Postoperatively, immediately start cooling the wound. This minimizes the scar and die edges become less prominent.

Particularly, larger scars tend to rapidly lose moisture which result in a loss of elaticity. This creates the sensation of tension in the scar tissue.

  • apply Contrakel® only on closed wounds
  • gently massage the tissue for 5-10 minutes
  • repeat the application and massage multiple times during a day (min. 2-3 times)
  • depending on the size of the scar continue the treatment for 6-12 months

Available in pharmacies, Sanolabor stores.
