Pharmacological properties

Mederma has anti-inflammatory and fibrinolytic effects, and also accelerates tissue repair. The active components of the drug help to increase the hydrophilicity of tissues and provide softening and smoothing of collagen fibers that make up the structure of the scar. The drug is characterized by an antiproliferative effect, and the gel also prevents the body from allergizing.

Tsepalin is characterized by bactericidal properties. Allantoin has a sedative effect and helps to eliminate the itching that accompanies scarring processes. The keratolytic action of allantoin and its ability to increase tissue permeability to other components of Mederma gel increase the bioavailability of the drug.

Mederma inhibits the synthesis of mediators and biologically active agents, which leads to suppression of the inflammatory process. All components of the gel are characterized by a synergistic nature of interaction, which allows to slow down the proliferation of fibroblasts and pathological processes of collagen synthesis.
