    Posted: May 30 2013 at 4:25am

I've posted in the cosmetic surgery section but I'm also posting here, just in case.

 
Do you use silicone sheets for scars? What's the best brand? And most importantly, how do you get them to stay put the required 8 to 12 hours? I've tried many brands and they just won't stay put! Especially in difficult areas.
 
I tried a regular Band-Aid and it still wouldn't stay put. So I tried a very large one which stayed in place but after a week or so, the glue left hyperpigmentation on my skin and I had to stop. It took 6 months to fade!
 
Silicone gel is known to be significantly less efficient than sheets. I use them for now because I can't get the sheets to stay put but I'm not seeing results. Any advice?

It's suppose to provide constant pressure on the scar to help flatten it. You are supposed to use it for months at a time.

I'll take note of it. I still have plenty of scar gel to finish off, though, and I was hoping to secure sheets rather than liquid/gel because my scars are old. I need them to stay put!
