What is BioDermis Xeragel?
Xeragel is a 100% silicone based product that is used to help heal scars. This review will provide customers with needed information about the product, price, how it works, and how to use it. The product is designed for small scars and can be used on delicate parts of the body such as hands, feet, ankles, face, and neck. Due to the gels transparent color, the product does well to remain discreet when addressing scars throughout the day, in public.
The product only utilizes silicone gel as an ingredient. It works by protecting the affected area from any outside toxins that may hinder the healing process. At the same time, the product allows oxygen to pass through and reach the scar which maximizes the body’s natural healing capabilities.
The instructions state to use the gel twice a day for three months. Apply a small layer of the gel to the scar and leave it on. BioDermis also recommends using a silicone gel sheet along with Xeragel for maximum results.
One .33oz tube of Xeragel costs $19.95. A 1.76oz tube has currently been reduced from $75 to $59.
Possible Side Effects
The product is 100% silicone gel and, most likely, has no bad side effects, which is possibly why BioDermis has not listed any on its website.
BioDermis does not offer any customer satisfaction guarantees on its products. This is very disappointing and may make potential customers question the overall performance of this product.
The product does, however, have many customer reviews. Many of the reviews are quite positive although some customers did complain that the product only worked to faintly reduce the visibility of their scars. The main issue some customers seemed to have was the stickiness factor.
The Bottom Line
BioDermis Xeragel is made with 100% silicone gel which has been proven by professionals to help boost the healing process of scars. It may not be the most effective, but it definitely fades scars which is better than nothing. The main issue with this product is the texture of the gel itself: it’s sticky and messy. It can also irritate the affected area if applied to a scar that is underneath clothing. Due to the product’s thickness, the whole tube of Xeragel runs out fairly quickly. The product is recommended to be used for three months which means the customer will need to buy more than one tube which may be really expensive for many people.
