How SilcSkin Works
When the SilcSkin silicone pads are worn, the pressure provided by the pads stimulates the collagen and cell growth and increases the blood flow which helps to improve skin tone. Silicone moisturizes the skin by drawing the skin’s natural moisture to the surface, plumping out the existing wrinkles. Silicone scar sheets have been used in the medical industry to heal scars after regular surgery, from acne, and plastic surgery. They create an occlusive barrier which hydrates the skin, pulling the skin’s moisture to the surface. We are treating wrinkles, fine lines and crepey skin in very much the same way.* SilcSkin anti-wrinkle pads are made from 100% medical-grade silicone that has been processed using a platinum curing method. This ensures a residue free silicone so it can be used on even the most sensitive skin**. SilcSkin silicone does not contain any fillers or adhesives.
* Individual results may vary.
** Do not use on sensitive, irritated, cut, scratched or burned skin. Do not use if there is a known sensitivity to silicone. Discontinue use if a rash or irritation occurs.
Skin surface before treatment
When our pad is placed over the affected area, it creates an environment that pulls the skin’s moisture to the surface, effectively “plumping” out the skin. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Skin surface after treatment
When the pad is left on for an extended period, the skin looks smooth. With consistent use, the results are cumulative — the longer you wear our pads consistently, the better the results.
What Are SilcSkin Pads Made From?
Our pads are made from 100% medical-grade silicone, the same type that is used in the medical industry for treating scars and burns. There are no allergy causing additives or adhesives used in the manufacturing process. In fact, SilcSkin pads are manufactured using a platinum curing process that They are not transdermal and therefore do not penetrate your skin. All our pads, except for our Eye Pads last 30 days or 30 applications depending on usage. After this period, the pads will lose their adhesive properties and need to be replaced. Eye Pads last a minimum of 15 applications. For best results, wear our pads for approimately 7-8 hours.
Why SilcSkin uses platinum cured silicone
Most medical silicones are cured with either peroxide or platinum. The peroxide system requires post-baking to remove byproducts such as volatile organic acids. By contrast, the platinum curing or addition system does not. Since there are no byproducts to remove, platinum curing is cleaner. Because of its withstanding characteristics, platinum cured silicone is used when it is necessary to avoid any possible risk of contamination, which is why platinum-cured silicone is often preferred for sensitive environments such as medical and FDA applications. Platinum cured silicone is non-toxic as well as non-yellowing. And last but not least, physical properties are better with platinum cured silicone, especially tensile strength and tear strength
