[PUREHEALPLUS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS]
[HOW DO I USE PH+ SCAR REDUCING SKIN CARE ?]
Dispense the product by pressing the grey top with your thumb. A new tube will require a few pumps prior to use as it is an airless container. Apply a very small amount of the scar gel to the affected area and rub it in until completely absorbed. The slight orange tinge that develops over the area of application should disappear after a minute or two as the product gets absorbed.
[WHAT TYPES OF INJURIES CAN PH+ BE USED ON ?]
It can be used on burns, surgical incisions, cuts, scratches and keloids. Great results are achieved with both old and new scars.
[HOW SOON AFTER MY SURGERY CAN I USE PH+ ?]
For our patients, we suggest starting application of PH+ a week after the sutures have been removed. Your treating physician may have different recommendations. We suggest you discuss the exact timing with your provider.
[ARE THERE AREAS WHERE PH+ SHOULD NOT BE USED ?]
Do not use it on any membrane surfaces like your eyes, inside your nose, infected wounds or any wounds that are still open or draining.
[WHAT MAKES THE PH+ SCAR GEL APPEAR ORANGE ?]
Seaberry essential oil contains a high concentration of beta-carotenes. These naturally occurring antioxidants give PH+ its distinct color. You may notice a orange hue to the skin immediately after application of the scar gel. This should resolve within a few minutes once the beta-carotenes get absorbed. If the color persists use a smaller amount of scar gel and make sure you massage the product into the skin until it is completely dry.
[CAN I APPLY SUNSCREEN OR MAKE UP OVER PH+ SCAR GEL ?]
Yes, that is one of the benefits of this formulation. We encourage our patients to apply sunscreen (with an SPF of at least 30) over the scar gel on sun exposed areas. For make up, It actually works as a primer upon which concealer, corrector or other make up can be applied.
[CAN PH+ BE USED ON SENSITIVE SKIN ?]
Yes, PH+ Scar Reducing Skin Care is an advanced formulation that is naturally hypoallergenic and does not contain any added preservatives that can cause skin sensitivity or irritation.
[WHAT IF PH+ DOES NOT IMPROVE MY SCAR ?]
Unfortunately not every scar can be improved with topical treatments. We suggest using PH+ for 6-8 weeks. If you do not see significant improvement in this time period this scar gel may not be effective for your scar. However, do not get discouraged. There are other options available to improve the appearance of scars. We would recommend consulting a plastic surgeon or a cosmetic dermatologist for their advice.
