What’s more effective for scars, NewGel+ sheeting or NewGel+E topical gel? 

Silicone sheeting and topical gels both have good evidence of efficacy, and in visible areas such as the face and hands, or over flexure areas such as joints, the topical gels are preferred for the prevention and treatment of hypertrophic and keloid scars.

We are still often asked though, which is better for me, sheeting or gel?

Here’s a comparison chart to help you to decide.

Where Sheeting May Be a Better Option Where Topical Gel May Be a Better Option 
Older scars Scar Prevention 
Scars covered by clothing Scars in exposed areas like face, hands, arms 
Scars in areas with little movement Scars in high movement areas like joints 
Patients like an “apply it and forget it” solution Patients who will be willing to apply twice daily or more frequently if scar area is washed frequently. 
When extra protection and cushioning is a plus – Caesarean and Abdominoplasty scars Under compression garments 
Symptomatic scars – pain and itching High heat and humidity living conditions 
After scar revision surgery Fragile scars that might be damaged when pulling off sheeting 

NewGel+ scar treatment products were created with the advice of Physicians and are used in clinics and hospitals around the world. All products – strips, shapes and ointments are made in the U.S.A and are TGA approved here in Australia.

TOP TIP – How do Moisturisers differ from Silicone products?

Moisturisers increase the water (or moisture) content of the skin, whereas silicone-based dressings help to decrease the evaporation of water through the skin and to restore the barrier function of the skin, which can help to reduce scar formation.
