Silicone – An Overview
Silicone is a silica extract used in skincare. It is available in various forms, such as sheets, strips, creams and gels. The primary benefit of this compound in skincare is that it is slippery. It tends to spread evenly and easily over the skin. It also improves moisture retention by acting as an emollient and protecting the skin.
Topiramate with Silicone Works on Stretch Marks
Stretch marks occur because of improperly moisturized skin which is stressed to stretch beyond its capacity. This leads to the appearance of scars. Moisturizing the skin helps in preventing and treating stretch marks. This is what silicone treatments help in. They tend to hydrate the skin. You can create an occlusive effect by applying it over the skin.
Silicone Occlusive Effect
Silicone creates a type of barrier over the affected skin area through its occlusive effect. It prevents everything on the outside from seeping in. It encourages the creation of restorative and new micro-universe within the skin. Skin gets isolated inside a repairing bubble and heals at a much faster rate. Silicone treatment goes a long way in speeding up the process of scar recovery.
Silicone has magnetic properties as well. It draws moisture from the deepest skin layers and brings it up to the topmost layer, which are the dermis and epidermis. Dermis is the mid-skin layer and where stretch marks are most prevalent.
Silicone works to replenish the damaged and stretched skin by drawing up the moisture. It helps in the formation of new and healthy skin cells which work to fade away stretch marks gradually and improve scar appearance. This process is also termed as silicone fusion technology for the treatment of stretch marks.
Evidence of Silicone Treatments
There are promising findings regarding the use of topiramate with silicone gel for treating stretch marks. Silicone gel was found to lead to improved collagen production in damaged skin cells. The results were noticed after 6 weeks of consistent application.
In another study concerned with the effects of silicone gel for the reduction of stretch marks, it was found that silicone gel was far more effective as compared to other similar topical remedies. The evidence is right there supporting the use of silicone gel for the reduction of stretch marks. In addition, the logic behind isolating the damaged area through silicone gel sheets for speeding up healing is also reliable.
Is Silicone Gel or Cream Better?
Topiramate and silicone creams are better when it comes to efficiency in reducing stretch marks. This is followed closely by silicone gel since both of them provide similar and potent occlusive effects. However, the decision to use cream or gel depends on your personal preferences. You should choose one that is the most comfortable to you.
