Silicone has long been known as an effective way to help with scar treatment because it minimises movement of the skin through applied pressure and also creates a better regulated environment for scarred skin to heal in.
Many doctors recommend you use silicone gel sheeting to effectively help reduce scarring of raised, red and itchy scars. These scar management techniques can be effective for both old and new scars (hypertrophic and keyloid). However silicone sheets are mainly recommended for older, deeper and more persistent scars.
For the best results consistent use is required over an extended period of time and must only be used once a wound has healed. Please consult a doctor before use.
