Silicone gel sheets help improve the color and appearance of new or mature scars.
Only silicone gel sheeting applies long-term light pressure on scars, unlike rub-on gels or creams. Silicone gel has also been shown to add a hydrating effect to the scar and surrounding skin that helps in increasing mobility and faster healing.
Silicone gel sheeting is reported to reduce the itching and discomfort experienced when scars begin to heal.
Gel Mate silicone gel is self-adherent on one side. It is tacky to the touch and therefore adheres to the skin, generally without the need for tape or wraps to hold it in place. A soft, silky cloth covers the outer layer to make it easy to wear under clothes as fabrics glide over this cloth with minimal friction. Gel Mate is washable with soap and water and with proper care, can be used for weeks of treatment.
Individually packaged sheets include a measurement grid on the back to determine the amount of sheeting issued or to document progress as the scar reduces in size.
