A great concern for many mums who delivered via c-section is the scar the procedure leaves behind. However, with ample care for the incision, you are to minimise the appearance of the scar.
According to Dr Steve Fallek, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon at NYC-based BeautyFix Med Spa, silicone sheets keep injured skin hydrated. “It mimics the skin’s moisture barrier [thus] trapping the moisture in your body,”. In addition, the sheets help relieve itchiness, flatten and fade any raised or discoloured areas. “They can [be] used for any possible scarring to diminish pigmentation from surgery, cuts, burns, or other injuries.”
Each ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheet for C-Sections is made with a patented material that provides a unique combination of breathability, flexibility, washability and adhesiveness. It is to use—just paste it over the scar and leave it for 12 hours. It is also reusable for up to 14 days. This is perfect for use together with compression wear such as Upspring Shrinkx Postpartum Belly Wrap.
When it comes to something as lasting as a scar, we want to know that we are using something that works.
