Silicone Scar Sheets?

Although my surgeon recommends ScarGuard MD for the treatment of post-surgical scars, I can't help but to be interested in the silicone scar sheets I keep hearing about on here. So I was thinking about alternating between the sheets during the day and ScarGuard MD at night.

What brand of silicone scar sheeting is everyone using? Where do you get them? Is one brand better than another, or are they all basically the same?

I use ScarAway silicone sheets, from CVS. They seem to be working well!

Sounds like its a good idea to stick with ScarGuard to begin with and then switch of I'm not getting the results I want?

Not that I can give medical advice being a teacher, not a dr... but the Scar Away sheets mentioned above are some of the best I have ever used (& after a massive scaring episode which required an equally massive scar revision surgery I have tried at least 10 different brands). Why I think it works better then just the silicone gel (which is what I believe scar guard to be) is because when I first learned about silicone sheeting I remember something about the actual sheet pressing down on the scar, kind of preventing the body from pushing up scar tissue (like when you get a raised hypertrophic or keloided scar) - it somehow fools the body into thinking it has already pushed up enough scar tissue thus preventing it from pushing any up - if that makes sense... now how it works on an old scar i have no idea!! And of course the silicone has something to do with all this...probably to soften up scar tissue. I am sure the scar guard works for many people, and some people are lucky enough that they don't really scar that badly to begin with. But for me, I know I scar badly so I take extra precautions.... good luck with what ever you use!

I love the sheets! I'm using Dr Bauers re-usable silicone sheets and they flattened my raised scar in less than 2 weeks! They are so easy to use, you just put them on and forget about them! I have been swimming with them and everything! I think they work awesome, not sure if there is a big difference between brands but I def recommend using them! Oh and mine were only $20 bucks, they are cut to fit so I got 4 sheets total to alternate between.

Can someone tell me if Scarguard, Scar Away and other silicone sheets have adhesive backings. My skin is extremely sensitive to bandaid-like adhesives.
TIA.

ScarGuard is a liquid and it dries like a liquid bandaid. No adhesives.

Hey girl, I was conflicted too. I used silicone scar sheets first (Dr. Blaines - Only $15 on amazon.com) and it flattened my scars sooo quick and they started fading. But then, you have to wash them all the time and I found that they kind of smelled after which was gross. This made me lazy, so I stopped using scar treatment for a month and my scars started feeling a bit more raised again. So I bought scarguard and papertape two days ago and we'll see how this goes! I am using the papertape because sometimes the scarguard starts peeling and it's a pain. You aren't supposed to use a moisturizing soap so until I get a soap that isn't, I'm going to keep putting the papertape on top of the scarguard after the scarguard dries to hold it down

PS - Your surgery's coming up so soon!

I have been using the Scar Away sheets. I can't really tell if they make a difference or not to be honest, but I think I paid $18 for a 2 month supply. I have been using them for a month now and the incisions are still red. I never had surgery before so I don't know what looks good or bad. To me they don't look horrible, but I never had trouble with bad scaring.

I used ScarAway for 8 weeks straight and it really worked for me. My scar is hardly visible now at 4 months. It was easy to use and comfortable. Highly recommend it. You can see my scar pics they are public.

I opted for Scargard because I liked the convenience of dropping it in my bag and being to apply it whenever I needed to/remembered. Like one of the other users mentioned, it has silicone in it and dries almost like a scar sheet. The only caveat is that your wound or incision must be completely healed before applying, though I think thatís the case for most scar medications anyway. I think the company that makes Scarguard also makes scar sheets, so I suggest visiting the site or Googling for where to buy (www.scarguard.com). If you like Scarguard then Iíd suggest sticking with the brand. Itís your scar thatís on the line after all

I'm using a silicone gel sheeting called Mephaform. It has an adhesive on the back. Pretty simple to use. It comes in a sheet about 12x12 for $20. It does not come precut so I just cut enough for my scars. It's reusable for up to 5 days. I can't compare it with other scar sheetings but I think it works pretty well.

I used the silicone sheeting but they are a pain! They get dirty and take time to dry and they are so sticky! Also, when I used them, I would start spitting stitches and it would make my incisions muck up. I don't know why, but even three months post op they would get things aggravated.

Could just be me, but sounds like scarguard would be easier.

At the beginning I was using Scarguard and like the others said the peeling was a pain but i was only using it for about 2 weeks and switched to the silicone sheets and I've been using them for about 3 days now.... I will keep everyone posted on that.
I don't scar bad, just worried about the raised look and the darkening of the incision sites.
But I did notice that girls are paying big prices for the Scarguard and I only paid like 25.00 at CVS!!!

So I too was thinking about alternating..... I'll give the sheets a chance to prove themselves first and go from there.
But good luck to everyone who is in the same boat as me!

I thought the same thing when I bought it last year but CVS sells the smaller size, which is why it is half the price. The full 1oz bottle is double the price.
