Massaging Roll-on Applicator
Applies a thin layer that dries almost instantly
Massage stimulates blood flow, bringing nutrients to the assist in healing process
Massage is thought to work by mechanically in re-distributing the fibrotic tissue6,7,8
Massaging even once per day with ScarMD® results in significantly less scar tissue8

Clinical Data:
Surgeons recommend the use of massage to improve the aesthetic outcome of scar treatment1,2
90% of patients will experience an improvement while massaging scars using patients and observer evaluation1,2,3
Scars can limit the movement of the affected area. Massage has been proven to improve the range of motion around the scar4
Massaging scars with silicone is better than massaging alone5
Massage is thought to work by mechanically redistributing the fibrotic tissue6,7
