Today, I'm going to discuss my No. 1 silicone scar sheet pick: ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets.

My top recommendation is ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets. It's a brand that I've used many times in the past for my own scars, in particular, on my chest keloids and facial hypertrophic scars.

ScarAway was first recommended to me by a specialist doctor after I had corticosteroid injections done to flatten my raised scars. He said ScarAway could help soften my scars, reduce redness, and might even prevent them from coming back (a growing problem with keloids, pardon the pun).

By the way, if you're struggling with keloids or hypertrophic scars, especially ones that continue to get bigger over time, I highly recommend talking to your doctor about corticosteroid injections.

It was honestly the most effective therapy that I've tried for my chest keloids and hypertrophic scars, and it's reasonably affordable (and I've tried everything from Mederma, Bio-Oil, Palmer's, Vaseline, creams, pressure therapy, Chinese traditional medicine, etc., you get the picture).

Anyways, I used ScarAway in between each corticosteroid injection session and for many months after my last treatment (which was two years ago). Today, I just use a silicone gel to maintain my results and flatten any new scars that happen to pop up (unfortunately, like many people, I am prone to developing keloids; it's likely due to a genetic sequence that promotes collagen overproduction which makes it more likely for hypertrophic scars and keloids to develop).

I think pictures really tell a thousand words. So here's my facial hypertrophic scars in May 2015:

And now, here's my scars after many years of scar treatment, including corticosteroid injections (around 6-8 shots with 1-3 months in between), dozens of scar products including Mederma, Bio-Oil, ScarAway, NewGel+, Kelo-Cote, (you name it and I've tried it), plus changes to my lifestyle:

As you can see, my facial hypertrophic scars (some were also keloids) have diminished significantly in the last 5 years, thanks to both corticosteroid injections and silicone scar sheets/gels.

Here's some photos that show the progression of my chest keloids as well, from 2015 to 2020:

From 2016-2018, I received corticosteroid injections from my dermatologist for my chest keloids (which was very painful). This produced a dramatic improvement in these scars, flattening them out and reducing the redness to the point where some of them are barely noticeable now.

I used ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets during and after my treatment to maintain these results and help prevent the recurrence of any hypertrophic scars or keloids.

These days, I've been testing different brands of silicone gels (ScarAway, NewGel+, Kelo-Cote, etc.) but might go back to the sheets if I decide to get another round of corticosteroid injections.

Now, you might be asking yourself at this point, "Is ScarAway suitable for my scar?"

As long as your scar is "closed", meaning your skin is not severely damaged or oozing out fluids, you should be able to use ScarAway to minimize post-surgery or post-injury scar formation and help flatten existing scars. Of course, talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.

Finally, here are the product specifications for ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets:

  • Sheet Size: 1.5" by 3.0" which is large enough to cover small-to-medium scars, including cuts, scrapes, bruises, wounds, burns, skin biopsies, surgical incisions, and Mohs surgery
  • Treatment Period: each box includes 12 sheets and a plastic container for drying the sheet after you've washed it thoroughly. Each sheet should last around 7-10 days or until you feel the sheet is no longer sticking to your skin properly (regular washing helps it last longer)
  • Price: at under $20, these are the most affordable silicone scar sheets on the market! But you should be cautious of where you buy ScarAway because I've seen a lot of negative reviews on Amazon that complain about low-quality, potentially "knock-off" versions that look identical but don't deliver the same high performance. You can also buy online or visit your neighborhood pharmacy (and check out the ScarAway website for coupons).

My Verdict: ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets is my #1 pick for an effective and affordable solution for your hypertrophic scars and keloids, especially when combined with a professional treatment like corticosteroid injections (which I highly recommend!). ScarAway is suitable for all types of scars, including small-to-medium scars from surgery, injury, trauma, burns, keloids, and acne.
