Maybe I’m being daft (because that’s perfectly feasible) but I’ve just bought these from Amazon.
Silicone Scar Removal Sheets by Medi Grade £14.99. Five long ones, five short ones.
Designed to help speed up healing, resulting in thinner, softer, less red scars. Ideal for post-C-section, keloid scarring and more.
These sheets are waterproof and can be worn for 24hrs at a time.
Medi Grade silicone scar sheets are a completely pain-free and non-invasive scar removal solution.
Wash and reuse your silicone sheets for up to 2 weeks. Medi Grade also provides a unique storage solution (a floppy plastic piece of paper) to keep the scar strips clean when not in use.
I didn’t buy them to help flatten scars. I bought them for my neck.
I spoke in-depth about silicone gel sheets in this post about my neck creams here (or click the image below to read).
My neck isn’t too bad at all, but if I move my head back slightly and contort my neck in a certain way there’s a 3-inch square patch right in the middle of my neck that looks extremely crepey and wrinkled.
One day I won’t have to go looking for it, it’ll just be there. I want to put that day off.
If you did read the ‘neck creams’ post, you’ll know that silicone sheets are being marketed as an anti-ageing treatment. I bought some of the fancier ones but found they didn’t adhere to the skin that well, so I thought I’d go back to the basics with these ones.
Silicone on the skin creates the perfect environment for moisture. No air can get to the area with the silicone pads, so it draws moisture to the surface of the skin and stays there.
This silicone has the same effect. It draws so much moisture to the surface of your skin, it plumps up wrinkles.
I’m going to build up a tolerance and wear these as discreetly as I can (but mostly when I’m asleep I’m guessing) for as long as I can until they’re not sticky anymore and my neck is as smooth as silk – whichever comes first.
It can’t hurt – can it?
As back up I also bought the crème de la crème of silicone gel sheets, Cica-Care Gel Sheet 12cm x 6cm Sheet Effective Scar Treatment for £23.50 also from Amazon.
