Amit Saha, Registered Pharmacist & Head of Technical & Innovation at Dermal Therapy provides an expert commentary on silicone therapy as a means to manage, reduce, treat, and heal scars.

“Silicone therapy is a widely used treatment modality for scar management. Silicone gels, gel sheets, and creams are commonly used in scar therapy. These products have been shown to improve the appearance and texture of scars, reduce scar thickness and minimise itching and discomfort associated with scarring.

Silicone therapy works by providing a moist environment that helps to hydrate the scar tissue and reduce the production of collagen. This can help to soften and flatten the scar, reducing its appearance. Additionally, silicone therapy can help to reduce the redness and discolouration associated with scars.”

Silicone Gel for Scars

“Silicone gels are a popular form of silicone therapy. Silicone gels can be applied directly to the scar and can be used throughout the day. Formulations with a single silicone or a combination of multiple silicones are widely available in the marketplace. Some are even fortified with vitamins like A, C or E to provide additional scar-healing benefits.”
