What is silicone therapy?

Silicone scar treatment is the treatment of choice for the prevention and treatment of scars. It is the only available, non-invasive option for scar treatment backed by sufficient scientific evidence. Silicone products are available as silicone sheets and silicone gel. The scar-reducing effects of silicone are scientifically supported. Which is why the use of medical silicone sheets and gel has become the preferred therapy in professional scar treatment.

“According to the International Scar Management guidelines (2-4), silicone scar therapy is the preferred and evidence-based option for prevention and treatment of scars. It is a proven, non-invasive therapy that is both safe and easy to use.”

What is the treatment duration for medical silicone scar therapy?

Silicone scar treatment lasts 6 to 12 months, on average. But scar treatment lasting 2 years is certainly not unusual.

Use silicone scar therapy as long as the scar is painful, red or raised. Your scar will usually be more flexible after a few days treatment. Improvement in terms of colour and thickness takes much longer.

What's the difference between active and inactive scar?

The difference between an active and inactive scar is primarily based on its appearance and stage of healing. An active scar is characterized by a bright red color, and it is during this stage that scar treatment is most effective in reducing symptoms such as dryness, itching, and pain, as well as influencing the flexibility and eventual appearance of the scar. In contrast, an inactive scar has lost its redness and has become lighter in color, typically white or light brown. While treatment of an inactive scar is possible in some situations, it is important to consult a specialist for guidance on the most appropriate course of action.
