Which Scar Fx Silicone Sheet Do I Need?
The type of Scar Fx silicone sheet you will need depends on the type of wound you have or the kind of surgery you have undergone. Here’s a quick guide.
Small Wounds or Burns/Keyhole Surgery
Large Areas of Burned or Traumatised Skin
For larger areas of burned skin or traumatic injury you will need a 25cm x 30cm Scar Fx Silicone Sheet
After Caesarian Section you will need a 3.75cm x 22.5cm Scar Fx Silicone Sheet. We can also offer a kit that includes the sheet and a tube of ScarSil Scar Gel.
After abdominal open surgery you will need a 2.5cm x 30cm Scar Fx Silicone Sheet.
Abdominoplasty or Bariatric Surgery
For the even longer incisions resulting from Abdominoplasty or Bariatric Surgery you will need a 2.5cm x 55cm Scar Fx Silicone Sheet.
Bear in mind that you can cut your sheet for perfect fit, allowing a small border around your scar for complete coverage.
Your choice of Scar Fx silicone sheet will depend on the incisions your surgeon chooses to make. The possibilities are:
Concentric or “donut”: This incision traces all the way around the areola. For this you would require the Scar Fx Breast Circle.
Circumvertical or “lollipop”: Like the concentric incision, this incision traces all the way around the areola but adds a vertical line down toward the bottom of the breast. For this you would require the Scar Fx Lollipop Breast Piece.
Inverted T or “anchor”: The inverted T incision traces all the way around the areola, down vertically to the bottom of the breast, and horizontally along the inframammary crease where the breast meets the chest wall. For this you would require the Scar Fx Breast Anchor.
Remember when ordering that they come individually (not everyone requires two) unless you order a Scar Heal Kit for Breast Procedures.
Scar Fx Silicone Sheeting
Scar Esthetique Scar Cream softens and brightens scars. It’s great for simple scars when discoloration (hyperpigmentation) is your primary concern or if your scar is older than 2 years. The unique formula targets discoloration at the cellular level and supports your overall skin health. This silicone scar cream is non-greasy, easily absorbed, and significantly improves the appearance of scars. Many patients see continued results through long-term use.
It’s more than silicone. Scar Esthetique combines 23 ingredients proven effective for scar management. This mix includes silicone, anti-oxidants, polypeptides, and all-natural botanicals. Each ingredient plays an essential role in minimizing your scar and nourishing your skin. Among these key ingredients onion extract, allantoin, arnica flower, calendula, and silicone. Accidents happen; keep this cream in your cabinet for when you need it.
Medical professionals recommend Scar Esthetique for simple surgical scars and old scars. Testimonials support improvements on scars up to 16 years old. The formula is safe for all skin types. Use it for minor surgical scars, old scars, burn scars, stretch marks, or any scar with discoloration.
