Scar/Keloid Inhibition Sheets, Silicone
Definition : Silicone sheets designed to treat dermal wounds, preventing hypertrophic scar tissue and keloids when applied as an occlusive or semi-occlusive covering to the wound. These sheets typically consist of a soft, thin, and slightly adherent layer of silicone that may also include other compounds (e.g., corticosteroids, vitamins) that are also intended to improve wound healing. Scar/keloid inhibition silicone sheets are available in a variety of sizes and shapes (e.g., strips, patches, flat rings); they are used, typically after surgery, as dressings in patients with dermal wounds, burns, or other wounds.
