Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

How to use a product called Contractubex? I bought it but for some reason, it does not come with usage instructions. How do I use this product but combine it with SPF 30? I would like to know how to use it for a fresh surgical scar. Can someone please tell me how to use it with SPF 30, that is how to combine SPF 30 for a surgical scar because Contractubex does not come with instructions on how to use it mixing it with SPF 30. I had surgery on my right cheek to remove the black birthmark.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Contractubex (Extractum cepae, Heparin, Allantoin) is a topical medication of scars. Apply this gel to the scar in the morning and night after washing your face and you have to massage the gel over scar with clockwise and anticlockwise wise rotatory movements for 4 to 5 minutes. Once all the gel is absorbed, then you can apply sunscreen SPF 30 on top of it for the full face. Use the sunscreen every four hours, because sunscreen protects skin from UV rays for four hours once applied, you need to apply repeatedly every four hours for maximum benefit.
