Neosporin's Scar Solution silicone scar sheets for over-the-counter use are convenient, affordable and efficacious, according to the company. Silicone sheet technology has been used for some time by plastic surgeons and burn centers to minimize scar appearance.
The patented Silon technology significantly reduces the appearance of scars. The product also minimizes the formation of scars from newly healed wounds or surgical procedures.
The sheets are comfortable and easy to wear. The fabric-backed sheets are durable and flexible, and blend with most skin tones. They can be cut to fit the size of the scar.
Silicone sheeting is believed to mimic the natural barrier function of normal skin. The occlusive barrier hydrates damaged scar tissue and allows skin to return to a more natural color and texture.
For best results, the sheets should be worn for 12 weeks. Gradual improvement is seen in as few as four weeks.
