The i-Port Advance is a small patch that sticks to your skin like an adhesive bandage and is used to deliver multiple daily subcutaneous insulin injections. It reduces the discomfort and anxiety of injections and leaves a small cannula under the skin. The device contains insulin and is easy to use, but it is not without risks. Injections can cause swelling and scarring. If you experience any of these side effects, you should stop using the i-Port Advance immediately.

It causes scarring
If you're wondering whether an I port advance has caused scarring, you're not alone. It happens to people all the time. It happens because of recent surgery, burns, or injury. If you're concerned that your scars may be related to another health problem, you can try a few simple remedies. A massage may help as well. Your massage therapist will use deep tissue mobilization and myofascial release techniques to break up scar tissue.
Although the overall satisfaction rate for I Port advance treatment was only moderate, there was a small improvement in patient satisfaction with the procedure. The most common side effect reported was scarring at the i-Port insertion site. Most local complications were minor, self-limiting, and resolved with different insertion sites. If you experience scarring, talk to your doctor about alternative treatment options. However, scarring is not an indication for withdrawal from the i-Port.
After the surgery, your child's doctor will likely prescribe an i-Port Advance to help prevent scarring. This type of device comes with an integrated inserter that stays under the skin and allows medications to be injected through it. Because the port is small and flexible, it can be inserted multiple times with just one application. If you're concerned about scarring, ask your child's doctor about special silicone tape that sticks to the port and helps prevent it from sliding around.
While the procedure itself may not cause any pain, the scarring that develops on your skin may be more noticeable than you'd like. Some people may experience mild swelling and pain after the procedure, but these side effects will clear up within a few days. You can also use topical scar tissue treatments. Vitamin C-containing topical serums may be effective for minor scarring, but more severe scarring may require a more aggressive treatment.
