NewGel Scar Care

NewGel+ Scar Management Solution is an 100% medical grade silicone sheeting product and a silicone gel ointment with vitamin E proven to reduce, flatten, fade and smooth scars – both old and new. The sheeting is self-adhesive and worn directly on the scar. While the sheeting is considered the first choice for scar management, NewGel+E silicone ointment was developed for use when sheeting would be inconvenient, hard to secure or unsightly. 

For optimal results, NewGel+ silicone sheeting can be used in combination with NewGel+E ointment to provide 24 hour-a-day coverage. Apply one product during the day and the other at night. NewGel+ silicone sheeting improves scars by providing a combination of occlusion (seals the scar from exposure to air), hydration, elevated skin temperature and continuous light pressure. NewGel+E silicone ointment improves scars by providing a combination of occlusion (seals the scar from exposure to air) and hydration. 

Positive results can be seen in as little as 3 to 7 weeks. Best results are seen after three months.
