Very few products for scar reduction sold over the counter have actually been clinically proven to make a difference to scars.
(like Bio oil, Vitamin E, coco butter etc )
Silicone is the medical proven treatment for scars, it helps to reduce the redness of scars, flatten scars and minimise the pain, itchiness and appearance.
It is used and recommended by plastic surgeons, leading specialists worldwide and the NHS, to effectively reduce scarring.
It works for many types of scars old and new, including keloid, hypertrophic, acne scars, surgery scars, and scars from burns, cuts, and other injuries.
Silicone gel dries to form a sheet; this silicone gel sheet layer is gas permeable, flexible and waterproof. This forms a bond with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells) forming a protective barrier against chemical, physical and microbial invasion of the scar site while assisting with hydration. This creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normalized collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.
Silicone is without doubt the most important thing to look out for in your scar removal product whether it’s a gel or sheet you opt for.
