Has anyone ever used scar cream under silicone sheets

Recommended Posts

So after wearing cica care for about a month, I've been seeing some progress:

http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/357570-which-type-of-scar-is-this/

However, doing some more research, I found a study which found that vitamin E combined with silicone sheets were more effective than the silicone sheeting alone( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7591421)

Has anyone ever used a cream with vitamin E under their silicone sheets? I know that you're not supposed to put anything under the silicone sheet, including any moisturizers,lotions, creams etc. so I was wondering if there were any products out there that would be safe to put under the sheets.

I was thinking possibly this: (this is just a silicone gel cream with vitamin E in it) would be ok since it is just silicone.

Let me know what ya'll think thanks!!

I wouldn't recommend it but it wouldn't hurt to try for yourself. I use the ScarAway silicone sheets for keloid scars on my chest and when I fist started using it I decided to try putting some lotion on my chest before applying the sheets. If the sheet is new then the adhesive is 100%, then there wouldn't be a problem, but since the adhesive starts to wear off after a couple of days it makes it even harder to keep on if you apply some type of moisturizer under the sheet. Like I said try for yourself and see how it goes.
