Kelo-Cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel Review
There is no quick fix solution to healing scars and many of us buy into the idea that products on the market for scar care have proven results. There are many factors to consider when purchasing these products such as the formula and dosage. Today we review Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel, a 100% silicon-based formula that improves the overall appearance of keloids, scars and prevents excessive scar formation. Kelo-cote claims that it’s patented self-drying silicone formula is clinically proven to flatten, soften and reduce the appearance scars caused by injury, surgery, and burns. The formula helps to reduce itching and discomfort as well as pain associated with scars. In this review, we take a look at the facts to see if Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel is effective in managing the appearance and formation of scars.
- Silicon Dioxide
Silicon Dioxide is a compound used in several scar removal products and acts as a barrier on the skin to lock in moisture and prevent infection. The formula does not contain any healing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Jojoba oil or Vitamin E which are known to replenish and regenerate the skin. Without the additional healing properties, this gel may only be effective on newly formed scars and not on tougher existing scar tissue.
A very thin coat of Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel should be applied to the cleaned area twice a day. It is suitable for all areas of the body and should not be exposed to the eyes or any open wound. The gel should be used for 60-90 days before seeing results. The dosage is quite low and may result in delayed results well after 90 days. An effective application for any scar management should be at least 3-4 times a day according to research to ensure that the scar is always protected and the product is not diluted or rubbed off due to factors such as sweat and clothing.
Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel is available in 10 and 60g bottles. The 10g bottle ranges from $26.25 to $27.50 and the 60g bottle retails for $99.99. Kelo-cote does not sell their products directly online and can be purchased through third-party retailers. Since there are no discounts available consumers will have to do a price check on each retailer to get the best price.
Unfortunately, there is no money back guarantee on the product. Consumers would have to rely solely on claims and testimonials which does not guarantee results either. Since the recommended duration of treatment is 60-90 days consumers would need to wait the entire period before approaching the manufacturer’s to ask for a refund.
Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel Review – The Bottom Line
Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel may be an average option for consumers looking to improve the appearance of new scars because of its silicon-based formula, however, existing scars and keloids is a different story and requires a potent formula that has healing properties such as Aloe Vera, Jojoba oil or Vitamin E. With no guarantee in place taking the risk of purchasing a product that might not be effective is much higher. In addition to that, the product is expensive and may set consumers back a few dollars without results. According to some testimonials, the product has not lived up to its claims as many consumers complained that there was no difference in the appearance of their scars even after the 90 day period. Based on our findings and the facts, there is no clinical proof to back up any of the claims of this product and the substandard generic formula is not potent enough to improve the appearance of deep scars or keloids. For those reasons, we cannot recommend Kelo-cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel as an effective product.
