Biodermis Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent No. 8,557,287 for Pro-Sil Silicone Scar Therapy Stick

Introduced in 2006, Pro-Sil, the World's First, and Only Silicone Scar Therapy Stick, Receives Patent

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - As a convenient, easy-to-use, glide-on alternative to ointments, Pro-Sil elevated silicone scar treatment products to a new level. The Pro-Sil stick was designed to store compactly and worry-free in a purse or pocket, without the drips or leaks associated with silicone ointments.

"Getting a patent has always required a heightened level of ingenuity and a commitment to your principles. We have maintained a constant focus on market leadership through a culture of innovation, and this patent award further solidifies our position and commitment to the scar management market. Now patented, Pro-Sil will further separate Biodermis from our competition and in an industry that we helped create over 25 years ago. Pro-Sil will undoubtedly be the standard by which all products are measured in the scar management business."
-- Jeff Schleuning, Ph.D. EVP, Partner, Biodermis

Biodermis was the first company to launch multi-configurations for the silicone sheets and the first to introduce silicone ointment for treating scars. The patented Pro-Sil semi-solid silicone stick glides on, and disperses into an encapsulating film over the scar site. The Pro-Sil family of products provides all the benefits of silicone ointments, but in convenient stick formulations. The full text of the patent is available on the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (

"This patent is a testament to Biodermis' technological commitment. Biodermis will continue to protect its intellectual property, and the rights of its customers who use its products."
-- Martin Mitchell, President and Partner, Biodermis
