Drug Description

RECEDO
(medical-grade topical silicone) Topical Gel

Prescription Medical Device – Caution: Federal Law restricts this product to sale by, or on the order of a licensed healthcare practitioner.

DESCRIPTION

RECEDO™ Topical Gel is an advanced silicone treatment for minimizing the appearance of scars. The gel dries rapidly to form an invisible protective silicone sheet over the affected area. This protective barrier is flexible, waterproof, and breathable. The patented silicone gel formulation has been shown to flatten, soften, and smooth scars, relieve the itching and discomfort of scars, as well as reduce the discoloration associated with scars.

Indications & Dosage

INDICATIONS

Under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner, RECEDO™ Topical Gel is intended for the management of old and new hypertrophic or keloid scarring resulting from burns, general surgical procedures or trauma wounds.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Directions For Use

Ensure the affected area is clean and dry. Unless otherwise directed by your healthcare practitioner, apply Recedo evenly in a thin layer twice daily. For maximum effect, Recedo should have 24-hour contact with the skin. Once dry, Recedo can be covered with sunscreen, cosmetics or pressure garments. If Recedo has not dried within 4-5 minutes, you have probably applied too much. Gently remove the excess and allow the drying process to continue. 

Recommended minimum treatment time is 60–90 days. It may take longer than 90 days for older and larger scars to achieve full benefit. Talk to your physician if extended use recommended.
