- How old should my child be, before it’s safe to use Dermatix® Ultra Kids?
Dermatix® Ultra Kids is suitable for use with children aged 3 months and above.
- How long will it take for the appearance of my child’s scar to improve?
It depends on many factors. We recommend a minimum treatment time of 60 to 90 days, with older or larger scars requiring a longer treatment time. For best results, treat your child’s scar using Dermatix® Ultra Kids when it is still fresh (i.e., less than 3 months old), as soon as the wound has closed and healed. Dermatix® Ultra Kids works best when used on scars formed less than 2 years ago. We recommend applying Dermatix® Ultra Kids twice daily for 3 months on minor scars, and 6 to 9 months on burn scars or surgical scars. It is suitable to continue using Dermatix® Ultra Kids for as long as continued improvements are seen.
- Is Dermatix® Ultra Kids suitable for use on sensitive or allergy prone skin?
Yes, Dermatix® Ultra Kids is suitable for use on sensitive and allergy prone skin. However, should your child have an underlying medical condition (related to their skin), please consult your skin doctor before using Dermatix® Ultra Kids.

HOW DOES DERMATIX® ULTRA KIDS LIGHTEN, SOFTEN AND FLATTEN2,3,4 SCARS ON CHILDREN?
Dermatix® Ultra Kids contains an innovative silicone gel technology called cyclopentasiloxane (CPX). CPX improves wash off resistance and makes Dermatix® Ultra Kids easy to apply and quick to dry – reducing the risk of accidental ingestion among young children1.
The formula’s other key ingredient, Vitamin C ester, is more quickly and easily absorbed into the skin than other types of Vitamin C – further enhances Dermatix® Ultra Kids effectiveness in lightening5, flattening and softening children’s scars.

Dermatix® Ultra Kids works best on fresh scars that are less than 2 years old. For best results, apply as soon as the wound has healed. This will allow its active ingredients – CPX and Vitamin C ester – to start working on the scar, as soon as possible.
This is how it works. CPX acts as a protective barrier to prevent further trans epidermal water loss, which brings the overproduction of collagen back into balance – preventing further formation of the scar. Meanwhile, Vitamin C ester is
Its quick-drying formulation doesn’t stain clothes, allows you to apply moisturiser or sunblock soon after application, and reduces the risk of ingestion among young children1 and infants.

TIPS FOR GETTING THE BEST RESULTS WITH DERMATIX® ULTRA KIDS
