While there are studies that have shown that silicone, which is an ingredient in Talsyn-CI, to be effective at minimizing or reducing the visible appearance of hypertrophic and keloid scars, it may not be the best option available based on its limited availability and the addition of unnecessary ingredients.
Research has led to the development of numerous creams and gels that have proven effective in reducing the appearance of scars. Talsyn-CI Scar Reduction Cream, developed by Dr. Robert J. Mirabile, is a lipid-peptide complex that combines various ingredients with the silicone. This can actually make the silicone less effective. Also, the addition of fragrance can be irritating to certain users.

The Verdict on Talsyn-CI
The website for Talsyn-CI is extremely detailed and provides a great deal of information regarding their clinical studies. While Talsyn-CI appears to be a very effective scar reduction cream, there are significant drawbacks. Currently, Talsyn-CI is not available. When it does become available again, it will only be through a doctor. This is primarily due to the fact that it is most effective at treating recent surgical incisions rather than older scar tissue. For those who are seeking to reduce the appearance of older scars, Talsyn-CI is hardly the most viable option in scar treatments.
