Silicone Adhesives for Scars

Silicone adhesives for scars such as gels or sheets are an effective first step in scar treatment, these can be used as soon as the wound has healed over and on ‘over-active’ scarring. Silicone products aim to keep the scar moisturised and offers a protective layer.  

For optimum results gels and sheets should be used continuously for at least three months. Silicone adhesives for scars aim to flatten and reduce redness of scars as well as relieving symptoms such as itchiness and tingling, during your consultation silicone treatments may be advised as a conservative first step method before proceeding onto more invasive treatments.  

What are the benefits of silicone gel for scar treatment? 

Silicone has been proved to reduce the redness of scars over time and continuous use, they have also been shown to flatten and mature scars at a quicker rate. Silicone gels can also help to relieve symptoms of a scar such as itch and discomfort.  


How often do I need to use silicone? 

Silicone gel or spray for scars should be applied frequently for a period time, typically 2-3 times a day for at least three months to see improvement. Silicone sheets can be worn continuously for 24-48 hours depending on the brand and most are water resistant.  


When should you start using silicone products on a scar? 

As soon as your wound has healed over and any bleeding or scabbing has stopped, you can begin using silicone adhesives for scars.
