Tag how does silicone help scars

Silicone helps scars by creating a favorable environment for wound healing and minimizing the appearance of scars. Silicone sheets or gels form a protective barrier over the scar, which helps to hydrate the skin and regulate collagen production.

This barrier helps to create a suitable microenvironment for the scar to heal, reducing its redness, thickness, and overall visibility. Additionally, silicone helps modulate collagen synthesis, promoting a more organized and less conspicuous arrangement of collagen fibers in the scar tissue. Using silicone products for scar management is a well-established method and is often recommended by healthcare professionals to improve scars’ overall appearance and texture.
