Pur-Sil Offers Multiple Benefits to Patients

Arnika Forte is an innovative post procedure recovery product that contains a unique formulation of arnica montana and bromelain. Created by DermAvance Pharmaceuticals, it is used to reduce the swelling and bruising associated with aesthetic surgical treatments and dermal filler injections. To complement Arnika Forte, DermAvance recently introduced Pur-Sil, a scar gel that consists entirely of 100% medical-grade silicone.

Offering a number of benefits to patients, Pur-Sil is designed to quickly improve the appearance of scars. The product, which flattens and softens scars, dries immediately and diminishes itching and redness. In addition, Pur-Sil is just as efficient as silicone sheets. 

The product is ideal for cosmetic surgeons, who can include it in the post-operative kits that they typically provide to patients prior to surgery. Pur-Sil is available only from physicians.

Silicone gel is a first-line standard in the treatment of scars, stated an article published in The Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery in 2014.

Arnica Montana and Bromlain as Anti-Inflammatories after Surgery

Formulated by the professionals at DermAvance, Arnika Forte is a leading post-operative supplement used in aesthetic procedures. Arnika Forte uses Arnica montana and bromelain to reduce the swelling and bruising associated with cosmetic surgery. Arnika Forte is the only product of its kind on the market and has been used by notable figures including Angelina Jolie.

Arnica montana is a herbaceous flower similar in appearance to large daisies. The flower is useful in both fresh and dried states and has been widely used in medicine since the 1500s to reduce muscle aches, swelling, and bruising. Arnica can be used both topically and orally, though it is important to take oral arnica under the supervision of a medical professional.

Bromelain, a mixture of enzymes commonly derived from pineapple stems and pineapple juice, causes the body to fight inflammation and also reduces bruising. The Bromelain that is used in Arnika Forte comes from the "stem" and contains the highest level of enzymatic potency. This makes bromelain valuable for reducing swelling and bruising especially after injury.
