You may be able to reduce the surgical effects of plastic surgery with specially formulated scar creams and silicone sheeting. Medical studies have shown that when you use scar gels, creams and silicone sheeting properly, you have up to an 80 percent chance of seeing a significant reduction in your scars. That's welcome news for plastic surgery patients, especially those undergoing procedures like face lifts and arm lifts, which have the potential for leaving visible scars. It is not recommended to use creams and gels under any type of silicone sheeting.
Getting Maximum Use From Scar Creams
The great thing about ordering scar creams is that their use isn't limited to plastic surgery scars. You can also use them on other types of scars and burns. It may take longer for the effects to be seen on older wounds. If you want to optimize the chances of reducing the visibility of your scars, cover your old wounds with silicone sheeting.
Getting Maximum Use From Silicone Sheeting
Silicone sheeting is a self-adhesive recommended by surgeons and dermatologists. Just like scar creams, silicone sheeting works to flatten and soften scars, making them more likely to heal and disappear. Unlike other adhesive bandages, silicone sheeting easily forms to most parts of the body, covering the wound completely and blocking out air and other irritants. Do not use creams, lotions, powders or ointments under silicone sheeting as they may interfere with the performance of the product and/or cause skin irritation.
