Best selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner Katie Piper is delighted to announce she has become the ambassador of Remescar, a range of medicated skin care products that helps treating old and new scars, stretchmarks and spider veins.Katie Piper & Remescar
A large percentage of the population have scars, stretch marks and spider veins and for some it means loss of self-confidence and social withdrawal. Katie admits through her own personal experience, she still has bad days when she feels unconfident and believes Remescar is one of the important treatments that’s helped her to get her body confidence back. Offering a range of solutions for scars, stretchmarks and spider veins; the treatments are clinically proven to treat and prevent these imperfections, whilst maintaining healthy skin. Katie is keen to raise awareness of this fabulous range with women and men everywhere, giving everyone the opportunity to help get their skin confidence back.
The mum of one found Remescar after much advice from medical professionals and her own personal research, and found it extremely effective. She was delighted this revolutionary treatment was available without prescription and found it supported the healing process of both her old and new scars, including stretch marks post pregnancy.
Katie explains “I’m delighted to be announced as the ambassador of Remescar as it is a treatment I believe makes a visible difference to scars and stretchmarks.
I found it really effective at softening and flattening the scar tissue, diminishing old and new scars. Naturally when I was pregnant I used the Remescar Stretch Mark cream as I already loved the scar stick.”
“I also love the fact that it’s available from Boots; meaning it’s accessible to everyone and contains an SPF15 UVA and UVB screen to protect scars from UV radiation, which is really important to me.”
Katie first started using the treatments from the Remescar line up four years ago and is part of her daily regime and a firm staple in her bag.
Katie says “I wouldn’t be without Remescar; it’s a must have product for me. It’s my little SOS stick of confidence; I use it in the morning before makeup application and at night time before I go to bed.”
As part of the campaign Katie will be looking for people who are proud of their scars and stretchmarks; people who are confident to go out and no longer cover them up after using Remescar. The campaign #skinstory will launch on social media early next year.
‘Created by skincare experts and scientists in Belgium, the two treatments first developed contain a film forming agent, frequently used in the treatment of wounds and each is clinically proven to support the healing process of both old and new scars. The stretch mark cream is one of the first medically recognised and clinically proven treatments to tackle the problem of stretch marks.’
Remescar Scar Stick is an affordable, non-invasive and clinically proven treatment that uniquely bridges the gap between expensive professional silicone therapy (widely regarded by doctors as the first-line and most effective treatment for scars including stretch marks) and the majority of cosmetic brands that sell cheaper products but whose effectiveness is substantially lower.
Combining the best of both worlds in two affordable, easy to use products – one for general scar repair and one specifically for stretch marks – the Remescar technology has active properties that are clinically proven to have a beneficial and noticeable effect on scar reduction, most notably up to 50% reduction in stretch marks by the women who used it in clinical trials.
Following the success of the Remescar Scar stick and Remescar Stretch Marks cream a third product in the range has just launched in the UK, Remescar Spider Veins (£29.95). This new innovative medical device that treats and prevents spider veins has just gone on sale in Boots stores nationwide as well as boots.com.
Although there is only a small health risk associated with spider veins, the social embarrassment can cause extreme body confidence issues, and before now many have felt the need to turn to painful and expensive sclerotherapy (injections), laser treatments, or invasive surgery (which can lead to scarring) in order to deal with unsightly vascular damage.
• A thin, transparent silicone film is released to hydrate, protect and restore the upper layer of the skin and stimulate collagen production, creating a protective barrier for scars to help heal. Overall, natural moisture balance is kept under control to soften and flatten scar tissue, reduce a scar’s length and height and restore the skin to a more normal colour and texture tissue so that even old scars fade and diminish. A powerful UVA and UVB screen protects scars from UV rays (it is a well-known fact that scars need to be protected from UV radiation)
• Beta glucan delivers a calming, protective and hydrating effect on the skin. Renowned as a wound healer, it is also an excellent film former.
• PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone), also a film forming agent and frequently used in the treatment of wounds, allows a longer contact time between the active ingredients and the damaged skin tissue so that the skin can repair itself faster
The two treatments already have a massive following in Belgium where they were created by skincare experts and scientists three years ago and each is clinically proven to support the healing process of both old and new scars.
REMESCAR SILICONE SCAR STICK (£19.95, 5.4g)–an easy to apply stick similar in size to a sun care or deodorant stick that helps to heal old and new scars resulting from burns, insect bites, acne and stretch marks.The stick can be carried anywhere, will last up to three months when applied twice a day and is invisible upon application so can be worn under make up.
REMESCAR SILICONE STRETCH MARKS CREAM (£24.95, 100ml)– an easily absorbed, hypoallergenic, odourless and paraben-free cream that uses the same technology as the treatment stick but is specifically formulated to prevent and treat stretch marks. In clinical trials, results show up to 50% decrease in stretch marks in just 28 days, users said their skin felt softer and smoother than before and that the pulling sensation in skin had completely gone. The addition of Phospholipids which mimic the structure of skin tissue means skin won’t dehydrate, unlike most cosmetic products using classical hydrating ingredients. Keeping skin sufficiently hydrated is the key weapon in stretch mark reduction, so that connective and scar tissues have chance to repair themselves.
The stretch mark cream is one of the first medically recognised and clinically proven treatments to tackle the problem of stretch marks. Leaving skin smooth and not sticky, it can also be safely used by breastfeeding women, even for stretch marks on the breast.
Remescar is available from Boots stores nationwide and www.boots.com
