Full Review
I had an 11 inch incision and ensuing scar on my left thigh, from surgery Feb. 17, 2011. I originally ordered the silicone strips and the Kelo-cote gel. I actually liked this product better than the strips because the strips are sticky on one side to adhere to your skin. The downside to that is that all kinds of stuff gets trapped in the sticky and washing for me did not remove the gunk (I also found washing them a chore and trying to hang them to dry without them sticking to themselves or anything else was cumbersome). At one point a rash began to appear and with summer heat I decided to only use the gel. (The one big advantage that I saw to the strips is that it puts compression on the scar which studies have shown aide reduction.) This product is clean and as you put it on, you can massage it into the skin, which massaging also helps reduce the scar. The downside is that if you use too much (you need VERY little) and it is not completely absorbed, it can create an oil mark on your clothing, however this is not so much an issue at bedtime as when you are out in the world. My scar was huge, raised, and bright purple. I began using both products on March 1 and now; mid June I am beginning to see that the scar is really diminishing. June 1st I began using just the gel, 2x per day. Also remember that if you spend the money and commit to giving yourself this treatment, keep the scar out of the sun the first year as sun exposure, to a new scar, will worsen the appearance of the scar. At least in the end, I know that I tried everything and did my best and whatever I am left with I earned!
