The Effects Of Topical Agent (Kelo-Cote Or Contractubex) Massage On The Thickness Of Post-Burn Scar Tissuetopical scar burn kelo-cote contractubex massage

We conducted an experimental study to compare the effect of massage using topical agents (Kelo-cote or Contractubex) on scar formation by massaging the healed burn wound on the dorsal area of Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats.
Four areas of second degree contact burn were made on the dorsal area of each of 15 SD rats, using a soldering iron 15 mm in diameter. After gross epithelialization in the defect, 15 SD rats were randomly divided into four groups: the Kelo-cote group, Contractubex group, Vaseline group, and control group. Rats in three of the groups (all but the Control group) were massaged twice per day for 5 minutes each day, while those in the Control group were left unattended. For histologic analysis, we performed a biopsy and evaluated the thickness of scar tissue.
In the Kelo-cote and Contractubex groups, scar tissue thicknesses showed a significant decrease, compared with the Vaseline and control groups. However, no significant differences were observed between the Kelo-cote and Contractubex groups. In the Vaseline group, scar tissue thicknesses showed a significant decrease, compared with the control groups.

that's seem to be good for people suffer from hypertrophic scars not atrophic scars , i also read studies about Chinese topical called mebo ointment ,it's work well with healing burns wounds , it's contain Sesame Oil ,Beta-sitosterol ,Berberine and other amino acids , i plan to to try it with micro needling , the problem that the topical contain powerful anti inflammatory agents and that's may effect the mechanism of needling that work by trigger controlled wound and inflammation is part of process , and that's may effect the outcome of needling !!
