Today, I’m going to discuss the ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets Long (measures 1.5″ by 7.0″).
Does this product live up to its claims? Let’s find out. ⭐
ⓘ In today’s post, I’ll share my 2¢ on ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets Long!
ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets Long
Summary: ScarAway also has a longer silicone scar sheet that’s perfect for surgical incisions and linear hypertrophic scars. 🙏
Best For: Longer Scars, including Surgical Incisions, C-Section, Tummy Tuck, Cuts & Bruises, and Linear Hypertrophic Scars
Key Ingredients: 100% Silicone
Get It @ Amazon
Speaking of which, the ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets Long is an excellent and affordable alternative to the normal version (only 1.5″ by 3.0″) for longer scars (this one is 1.5″ by 7.0″).
This includes scars from surgical incisions (like C-section and tummy tuck), cuts and bruises, and linear hypertrophic scars (which may arise following surgery, injury, burn, or natural tension).
With regular use, silicone sheets may help flatten and reduce the size of hypertrophic scars, relieve common symptoms like itching and redness, and prevent post-op scars from forming. 🤗
As I mentioned in the previous section, you might want to consider ScarAway Long as a cheaper version of Embrace Active Scar Defense for Tummy Tuck Scars. You can buy 12 sheets of ScarAway for about $40 on Amazon and cover your entire tummy tuck scar with roughly 3 silicone sheets.
The most common complaint with this product is the adhesiveness, especially around the edges where some people noticed that it stopped sticking to their skin pretty quickly.
What I like to do is to rinse the silicone sheet after each use (wear about 12 hours and swap out) and use both thumbs to squeeze and stretch out the silicone side under the tap. This will make sure it’s clean of any debris and skin oils that have accumulated during the day and also restores moisture to the silicone sheet which helps it retain its adhesive properties. 👍
This will help you make the most out of each silicone sheet (and save money in the long run!).
Finally, here’s one positive review and one negative review for ScarAway Long:
- “I have a big knee scar on my right leg from recent ACL reconstruction surgery. My physical therapist started to notice that my scar was keloiding so he recommended I buy silicone strips ASAP. I’ve only been using these for a few days and can already see that the scar is less puffy and it’s looking a healthier pink color, rather than dark purple. They claim to be sticky for up to 14 days. I don’t think that’s true, but these should at least last you around 5 days before you need to replace. If your scar is starting to keloid, you should definitely purchase these. Slap it on under jeans and you are good to go..”
- “These are not the same as the ones I was getting from Walgreens. Same brand, but much cheaper material. They peel and roll within a day or two. Won’t stick to the skin within a week and are coming off and bunching up in my clothes. I’ve been using the ScarAway silicone sheets from Walgreens for a month with great success. Wash well, stick well, and last almost 2 weeks before I needed to replace them. This one is junk. Waste of money. I’m annoyed that I have a whole box of them that I need to use up before I go buy them locally again. The only reason I’m still giving it a 2 star is that it is still a silicone sheet that is probably doing the same thing for my scar.”
My Verdict: If you have long scars from surgery, injury, burn, or natural tension (like chest keloids), ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets Long are an excellent and affordable option for flattening them.
