Silicone Scar Sheeting Before And After Pictures

Silicone sheeting can improve the looks of scars considerably. Especially when they are used in the first 6 months after wound closure.

Here are some before and after pictures of the results.

As you can see on the photo to the right scars will not get much smaller once they have a certain width.

That’s why it is important to reduce tension on the wound and scar tissue during the first healing phase.

A common method to keep tension at bay is by taping the wound/scar. Often paper tape is used for this purpose.

Silicone sheets are cumbersome to use on the face. That’s why most people opt for a silicone gel cream.

After application a thin film forms over the scar tissue. An alternative is to wear silicone sheets at night.

If necessary attached with silk tape (doesn’t irritate the skin). In case of severe facial scarring, silicone masks are used.

An example of how silicone sheeting makes a scar less elevated and less discolored.

Many scars will fade to a more normal state eventually but sometimes the opposite happens, keloids form. Silicones help prevent such abnormal scarring.

    1. Hi Car, you can. You many not see that much improvement though since, if I understand you correctly, your scars are already flat and soft. Maybe if you want to reduce redness and get soft and white or skin colored scars more quickly.
