Strataderm is currently my second top pick, mainly because I've just started using it (July 2020) so I don't have any before/after photos to show you. However, I'm very excited about this product because my dermatologist highly recommended it as she saw excellent results in her patients.

Based on my independent research, I found that Strataderm is manufactured by a Swiss company called Stratpharma and uses high-quality silicone polymers that bond very tightly to your skin (which is why Strataderm only requires 1x daily application compared to 2x for most silicone gels).

In addition, Stratpharma has a good reputation and produces many innovative scar products like:

  • Stratamed (a silicone gel that can be used on open wounds during surgery)
  • Stratacel (a silicone gel that can be used after laser therapy procedures)

Here's a video of Dr. Michael Gold discussing Stratpharma products, including Strataderm:

Dr. Gold is one of the leading authorities on scar management and is also the lead author of the International Advisory Panel on Scar Management's latest recommendations on scar management (source: Updated International Clinical Recommendations for Scar Management, Part 2).

In the video, Dr. Gold explains how silicone gels like Strataderm form an invisible and water-proof barrier over your scars to protect them from infections and keep them from drying out.

This creates a moist environment which is better for optimal wound healing (minimizes scars) and also helps reduce existing hypertrophic scars and keloids by suppressing collagen production (source: Advances in Wound Care, 2015).

Here's an excellent illustration that showcases how silicone works in more detail:

Anyways, Strataderm is a bit more expensive but I decided to take the plunge and buy the 50g version to use on my chest keloids and facial hypertrophic scars for the next 6 months.

I purchased directly from Stratpharma, but if you live in the US, you can also buy from

I'll update this post with before/after photos once I've completed the 6-month treatment period.

My Verdict: Strataderm is my second top pick as it's recommended by medical professionals including my own dermatologist and Dr. Michael Gold (a leading authority on scar management). It's a bit more expensive than comparable silicone gels but I'm optimistic it will deliver good results. Stay tuned for my next batch of before/after photos once I finish using Strataderm.

(p.s. Strataderm also comes in 5g, 10g, and 20g versions if you have smaller scars)
