Silicone Gel Sheet

 

Silicone Gel Sheet 

 

Silicone gel sheets are thick sheets. In fact, they consist of silicone gel.

Silicone is a synthetic polymer. It is very useful medically. It has the following benefits: 

  • Safe
  • Low thermal conductivity 
  • Stable and immediate adhesiveness to dry skin
  • Low chemical reactivity 
  • Repels water
  • Prevents adherence to moist wound bases
  • Low toxicity
  • Does not support microbial growth, so minimal risk of infection
  • Lastly, side effects are rare as it doesn’t absorb into the body

Soft silicone is a type of solid silicone that is soft. The dressings are comfortable. Moreover, they minimise the pain as well as protect the skin around the wound. 

Silicone dressings come in many forms like:

    1. Absorbent dressings 
    2. Foam dressings with silicone adhesives 
    3. Primary wound contact layers 
    4. Silicone tape
    5. Primary dressing silicone sheets 

Silicone gel sheets usually work for keloid and hypertrophic scars. In fact, they even work for closed and healed wounds.

They are easy to use. Moreover, they do not require any secondary adhesive dressing. 

The only limitations of silicone gel sheets may be the cost as well as their occasional lack of effectiveness in scar reduction.
