Vitamin E - powerful antioxidant, protects the skin from external factors, regulate the natural water balance. Ask a doctor: It’s best to talk with a doctor, like a dermatologist, about the best type of treatment for your scar. This can save you time and money in the long run. They can also offer suggestions and tips and answer any questions or concerns.
We applied a thin layer of the gel, turned on the vibrating wand, and ran it over the scar area for about two minutes, then applied a scar sheet to leave on for the rest of the day or overnight. Our scar was pretty tough: a pea-sized keloid scar we’ve had for about 20 years. While we didn’t see dramatic results (that’s to be expected with keloid scars, which usually require surgery), we noticed a less dense scar at the end of testing. Depending on the type of product you choose, you may need to look out for allergic reactions. Open skin is more sensitive to allergens, says Melanie Palm, MD, a dermatologist at Art of Skin MD. She adds that while silicone-based products are unlikely to cause a reaction, some OTC treatments contain other ingredients that increase the likelihood of a reaction.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, i.e. it can be dissolved in fats and oils. It acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals (as a result of pollution or solar ultraviolet radiation) and therefore helps to prevent skin aging. Silicone gels such as Keto-Cote scar gel, are an effective treatment used to reduce the colour, shape and size of scars as well as soothing irritation caused by the skin healing.Studies have found that some of them, like silicone and green tea, have benefits. Others, like onion skin and aloe vera, are unproven for treating scar tissue but may have value for soothing skin. Keloid scars are formed from excess collagen that is produced after an initial wound, such as a burn, deep cut, or infected ear piercing, has healed. In some instances, keloid scars may not appear for several months after the initial wound occurred. Throughout the lab testing phase and our research, we also relied on the expertise of several dermatologists and plastic surgeons, both in the Lab phase of our testing and during the research process:
Our editors who tested these scar creams had a wide range of experience in using scar treatments, with some being prior users and others never having treated a scar with an OTC product before. The products were also tested on a variety of scars; some old and some new, some raised and others flat or sunken.

At first, many scars will be raised above the skin but some will flatten out over time, creating a flat scar that often blends in with the color of your skin. People often don’t feel the need to treat these scars since they are already flush with their skin, but if you want your scar to blend in better with your skin color, a treatment containing allantoin or onion extract may affect the pigmentation of your scar. Stretch Marks EGCG is an antioxidant found in green tea. Since it is water soluble, it can’t adhere to skin or scar tissue on its own.

There are several factors that determine how long a scar will last, and how prominent it will be: “The biggest player in how someone heals is genetics — some people just heal better than others,” says Dr. Rogers. The severity of the initial injury can also have an effect on how long the scar lasts. But Dr. Rogers adds that you can help that mark fade away faster with proper scar care. We tested the Aroamas Scar Professional Silicone Scar Sheets on a four-year-old scar on our face where the skin was damaged enough to prohibit hair growth in that area. While it was a little awkward to cut the sheets down to the appropriate size for a facial scar (and we couldn’t leave the sheets on 24/7, as recommended) we were still impressed with the results we saw. The recommended treatment time for the use of all silicone gels, including Kelo-Cote gel is between 2-3 months but use after this time is recommended if you have not yet reached your desired results.
