Embrace active scar defense is the most effective way to treat new keloid or hypertrophic scars from surgery or injury. Our one-of-a-kind scar sheet treatment system features our patented stress shield silicone technology which protects and stabilizes the scar site from the stress of daily movements, and reduces the scar’s appearance. To enhance the healing abilities of active scar defense, we use the restorative properties of 100 percent medical grade silicone to soften, flatten, and fade scar tissue by providing the hydration the scar needs. The end result is a visibly thinner, lighter and smoother scar. Embrace active scar defense is for use in scar management on new, closed hypertrophic or keloid scars. Embrace is typically applied 2-4 weeks after surgery on a closed, dry incision and worn for approximately 8 weeks. For newly formed scars, Embrace active scar defense can be applied up to 6 months post-surgery. The best way to prevent scar formation is to treat a new scar right after surgery or injury, 1 to 6 months after sutures are removed. The earlier a scar is treated, the better the results. By gently contracting and holding together both sides of your closed incision, and protecting and stabilizing the tissue while preventing scar formation, Embrace active scar defense goes beyond messy scar cream or flimsy scar tape. 92 percent of Embrace patients and physicians rated Embrace treated scars as better vs. Leaving untreated.
