ScarAway is a household name in scar treatment and you might have seen their silicone scar sheets which are another effective and affordable option for scar management.

I’ve tried both ScarAway Silicone Scar Gel and ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets in the past:

  • Overall, I found the silicone sheets worked well on my chest keloids. It kept them moisturized but didn’t do too much in terms of reducing scar appearance (size & color). This was years ago before I received a successful series of corticosteroid injections.
  • Overall, I found the silicone gel was not as effective as I had hoped. I used it on my keloids and facial hypertrophic scars for about 4-6 months when I was in university. I didn’t notice any significant improvements in my scars; but to be fair, I had pretty severe scarring and we know that silicone gels should be used in combination with steroid injections to be effective (source: Updated International Clinical Recommendations for Scar Management, Part 2).

Unfortunately, I don’t have any before/after photos to show you from this time period. ????

Although I had limited personal success with ScarAway (the silicone gel), I’d still recommend it as it’s pretty affordable and easy to apply. It’s about $25 or less on Amazon for a 20g tube.

I remember the main drawback was the product’s rollerball dispenser which was supposed to help you massage your scars (Kate Somerville D-Scar Scar Diminishing Serum uses the same design).

However, the rollerball dispenser tends to get clogged up if you don’t use the product regularly. I didn’t really use it to massage my scars as I don’t think it had any effect (it’s also painful on keloids).

Finally, customer reviews have been pretty positive with an overall score of 3.8 out of 5.0 right now.

The reviews fall into two buckets: i) it improved scar appearance ???? or ii) complaints about the rollerball dispenser and/or how the price is much higher than at Wal-Mart ????.

My Verdict: ScarAway is a budget-friendly silicone gel that you can use on hypertrophic scars, keloids, and scars from wounds, surgeries, burns, and severe acne. Personally, it didn’t work for me but I wouldn’t mind trying it again for a 6-month period to give it another shot.
