I have a recent scar on my forehead from a fall three weeks ago. Is it best to start applying silicone gel now, or wait longer?

Taking care of your scar
Fortunately, the forehead tends to heal well. I'd consider waiting until the wound heals completely before applying silicone sheeting, but this is truly a question that deserves to be answered in person. Keeping the wound clean and removing stitches sooner than later, is the best thing you can do in the early healing period.
I hope this helps
