Pagosa Specialty Pharmacy offers an innovative compounded silicone gel designed to minimize a large variety of scars. This is particularly helpful for people with scars from burns, surgery, acne, keloids and stretch marks. We have compounded scar therapies that we can formulate to help treat new or recent scars from surgery or injuries, as well as, for older scars.
Scarring occurs when the skin is damaged and special cells called fibroblasts produce collagen to repair the damage. Collagen is the protein "glue" that holds tissue together Collagen is a tough, fiber-like protein that makes up the most part of scar tissue.
