Best scar cream/oil?

There's good science supporting the efficacy of this treatment and it's easy to do.
silicone sheeting looks like tape NASA sticky surface on one side.
The sticky or tacky surface is from silicone rubber.
I recommend cutting a small piece just big enough to cover this car and leaving it on for 2 to 5 days at a time.
typically this is started about three weeks after surgery.
in order for this to be effective it needs to be continued for many months typically 3 to 6 months.
it is particularly important for people with alive complected skin or those with a predisposition to excessive scar formation.
I like the product safetac made by the company called Mepitec.
it's available on Amazon and costs around $20 for a roll.
One roll should be more than plenty for covering the incisions from liposuction.
avoid non-silicone-based products.
in severe cases anti-inflammatory steroids either topical or by injection may be needed but this is rarely the case.
