Be Free from Scars, Use Contractubex

December 30, 2019
, , , , , , , , ,

I may say that I am not too vain. I am not very particular with the latest trends in beauty and fashion.  I sport a low maintenance haircut. I am a classic dresser. I am minimal. As long as my body and clothes are clean and descent, I am good to go. I do my own pampering at home as well. I am in my midlife years but I haven't experienced visiting a dermatologist or aesthetic center for facial treatments. It shows that I am comfortable with my own skin although some people may think that I am too lazy. Well, I don't mind at all when people tease me due to my frugal choices. I don't even mind if I have scars and stretch marks on my body because I believe that they are part of living. 

Talking about "physical or body scars" that are visible to the naked eye, I have plenty. I have friends who are conscious of having those that's why they make sure to treat them until they disappear. I haven't thought of doing so until a friend of mine encouraged me to try using Contractubex. She said that I should not be scared of trying the said brand because it works well in removing her scars and it's safe. The notion just slipped my mind until finally, I had the chance to try it myself when Contractubex sent me a gift. Amazing, isn't it?

I have received an ointment and patch version of Contractubex together with the product collaterals, which are very helpful because, of course, who would want to use a product without learning about its properties? I am very particular with the safety of the products that I try and use above all its efficacy and price. These are the things that I've learned that have prompted me to use it with confidence:

1. Contractubex Gel

Active Ingredients:

Cepalin Extract (Onion Base)- 10 grams
Heparin (used to treat and prevent blood clots)- 5000 IU
Allantoin (usually found in cosmetic products; promotes moisture)- 1gram

Gel available in 10 grams (SRP Php600) and 20 grams (SRP Php990) 

Channels Available:
Mercury Drug, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, Southstar Drug, and other drugstores nationwide under OTC (over the counter) status. It can be purchased online through Contractubex Philippines Facebook Page.

How do the active ingredients work on the scars?

When the three active ingredients are combined, they are considered to be the "Tri Total Recovery with Three Hard Workers". They serve as an anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anti-bacterial, regenerative, promotes wound healing, stimulates keratin production, increases skin permeability, softens collagen structure, inhibits fibroblast proliferation, relieves itching, and moisturizing. 

Where can we use Contractubex Gel?

Contractubex Gel is indicated for hypertrophic scars and keloids, movement restricting and optically disfiguring scars after surgery, amputations, burns or accidents, contractures (shortening of muscles due to excessive fibroblasts), and cicatricial strictures. 

How is Contractubex Gel applied?

It is highly recommended to start treatment as soon as the wound is closed and Contractubex should be applied correctly for best results. For new scars, apply Contractubex two to three times daily for at least three months while for older scars, it should be applied three times daily for at least six months. Using a compression plaster may improve its efficacy.

1. Apply only to wounds that are already closed or upon suture removal.
2. Start at the center and work towards the edges, massaging the gel gently into the scar.
3. Continue with a small circular motion until Contractubex is completely absorbed.

The question is, is it effective? The answer is a big YES!

I saw a huge difference in my small old scar (keloid) in my finger in just 5 days! It became thinner and smaller although I guess the scar removal would depend on the size and depth of the scar. In my case, it worked so quickly without feeling any discomfort or itchiness.

It is non-sticky, smells great, has an awesome cooling effect which I really, really like. It may look or sound pricey but a thin film is only needed per application so a small tube would thrive longer. Awesome!

2. Contractubex Overnight Intensive Patch (OIP)

The active ingredients of this product are like its gel counterpart except for Heparin. SRP per patch is Php157 while SRP per pack of 21 patches costs Php3,290. It is available in selected Watsons branches nationwide or online via Contractubex Philippines Facebook Page and Lazada PH. It is under Medical Device Status. 

- Dimension: 12 cm x 3 cm
- Acrylate based adhesive
- Polyolefin packaging foam
- Shelf-life: 36 months
- 21 patches per pack

Where can we use Contractubex Overnight Intensive Patch?
It is recommended for new scars, post-surgery scars, or fresh scars after incisions (post-surgical scarring prevention). It must be applied right after wound closure or after the suture has been removed. It protects the immature, sensitive tissue during the first weeks. It is best used by convenience-oriented patients (once-daily application overnight), where continuation with the patch till the end of treatment is advised (three months or 12 weeks).

How is Contractubex Overnight Intensive Patch applied?

1. Thoroughly wash and dry the scar area. Make sure the wound is completely closed and the skin is intact.
2. Peel off the transparent backing of the adhesive side of the patch.
3. Apply the patch so that the scar is completely covered.
4. For a smaller scar, the patch may be cut to size using a clean pair of scissors. Cut before peeling the transparent backing.
5. For larger scars, apply patches side by side.
6. Keep the patch in place for a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 hours overnight.
7. The patch is not reusable.
8. Use daily for three to six months or witch to Contractubex Gel after three months and complete the treatment for six months.

It is easy to apply, waterproof, can be cut into small pieces according to scar size, and clinically tested safe and effective in scar management.
