Scar-specific treatment for old and new scars
About Contractubex® For many years, Contractubex® has been found to be very effective in treating inauspicious and movement restricting scars. The gel can be used to treat both recent and old scars caused by a phyical accidents, a burn or scald, an acid burn, a vaccination, acne or operation etc. This is simple and easy to use.
Reduces excess growth of connective-tissue
Hydrates and makes scar tissue softer
Acts as a keratolytic and emollient
Soothes (counteracts pruritus)
Treatment: Treatment depends on the scar size, freshness of scar and the conditions of scars etc. Large, hard and old scars may need 3-6 months or even longer treatment. Treatment of scar requries a high degree of persverance and active participation by patient in order to achieve a noticable result.
Mode of action: The active ingredients in Contractubex® are cepae extract, heparin and allantoin. Cepae extract is obtained from onions. It generates an anti-inflammatory, bactericidal effect. And it reduces swelling while preventing excessive growth of the connective tissue. Heparin loosens the tissue structure. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps to bind water to the scar tissue. Allantoin encourages wound healing and has a soothing effect. In older scars its most important effect is to replenish and regulate the extreme lack of water in the scar tissue – and to promote blood flow.
The effects of the three ingredients enhance and complement each other. And the water-soluble ointment base allows the active ingredients to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. Contractubex® does not leave behind a residue. Rather its protective film shields the sensitive scar tissue. In many cases, Contractubex® treatments make scar tissues elastic again and restore most of their functionality. The earlier you begin to treat the scar tissue with Contractubex® the better the outcome will be.
how to use it
Apply a film of the gel on a cleaned scar for 3-4 times daily
Rub in the gel with the fingertips for about 2- 3 minutes
Rub away from the middle to cover all the wound’s edges or along the length of the scar.

Fresh Scars: Treatment can be started just days after wound closure, or 8-10 days after an operation.
