This scar sheet can be secured by a hypoallergenic tape that is available for sale and is used to hold and secure the scar sheet in place and ensure that it does not roll off under clothing or come off due to humidity.

As the optimal period of use of silicone sheets for a scar reduction treatment is typically 8-12 weeks. These sheets will last for the full 3 month treatment period.

Silicone sheets are an effective solution for both new and old scars. Clinical studies have shown that the newer the scar, the better the result. One such study found a success rate of up to 85% on scars under 1 year old, and the rate of about 65% for scars over 10 years old. The optimal period of use of silicone sheets is typically a minimum of 12 hours per day (and ideally 24 hours per day) for 8-12 weeks (see instructions below). Many patients report continued improvement to the scar beyond the 12-week period.

The main benefit of silicone sheeting compared to scar healing gels and ointments is that silicone sheets put direct pressure on the scar that is beneficial to minimizing scar appearance, whereas a scar ointment or gel does not put pressure on the scar. In contrast to scar gels, silicone sheets are easier and more convenient to apply and use day to day because they are not greasy, do not stain, and do not stick to clothes. It should be noted that some patients will actually use both silicone gels and silicone sheets on their scars, using the silicone gel during the day when treating scar areas that are exposed when they are out in public and then switching to the silicone sheet when they are in the privacy of their own home. This combination is an ideal way to maximize the effectiveness of silicone scar solutions without disrupting one's lifestyle. You can view a wide array of silicone gels and ointments in the Make Me Heal Store.

While the exact mechanism of action of silicone sheeting is not confirmed, various suggestions have been made, including increased pressure, hydration, oxygen tension, and the presence of silicone in the local environment due to the application of silicone sheets. Silicone sheets produce a static electric field (resulting from friction of the silicone material) that might have an effect on wound healing.

Why Is This Silicone Sheet Better Than Over-The-Counter Products Found In Stores? Over-the-counter silicone sheets (i.e. Neosporin, etc.) that you find at regular stores are made for general consumer use and are not a medical, doctor-level product as this silicone sheet. These over-the-counter silicone sheets are made with less silicone, are of lower quality and are not as durable as this doctor-level silicone sheet. Additionally, over-the-counter silicone sheet product do not have specific length, shape, or thickness options, as they typically come only in one size and are not specifically made for use on surgery scars that need to have a silicone sheet of a specific shape and size.

Instructions for Use: First wash your scars and hands. The scar sheet should fully cover the scar and extend all the way around the scar border. The exposed surface of the scar sheet may be covered with surgical tape or bandage to help hold the scar sheet in place and to prevent sticking to other surfaces. The silicone sheet should not be applied on open wounds.

The optimal wearing time for a silicone sheet is 24 hours per day for a period of 8-12 weeks. Many patients report continued improvement to the scar beyond the 12-week period. If it is not possible to wear the gel sheet for the recommended 24 hour period, it is recommended to wear the sheet for a minimum of 12 hours per day. Follow this procedure each day, washing and re-applying the gel sheet (according to the silicone sheeting care instructions discussed here) to the scar for 2 to 4 weeks. At that time the piece of gel sheeting will begin to lose its adhesive quality and/or may become embedded with surface dirt. When this occurs, discard the piece of gel sheeting and apply a new piece. You may safely wear the products beyond the 12-week period as long as you follow the instructions. When the scar stops responding for a continued period of 7-10 days, you have probably reached the point of maximum results and should discontinue using the product.

Silicone Sheet Care: Remove the gel sheet every 12 hours to wash both the scar area and the gel sheet using a mild and preferably fragrance-free soap or a specialized cleanser in a basin of warm water and work up a small amount of lather with the soap. Gently wash the piece of gel sheeting in the soapy water, rinse, and then air dry. After washing, rinsing and drying the scar site, re-apply the piece of gel sheeting.
