What is Neosporin ® Scar Solution ® ?
Neosporin Scar Solution Silicone Scar Sheets are indicated for use on raised and discolored scars. Silicone sheet technology is clinically proven to significantly improve the appearance of scars and has been used by burn centers and plastic surgeons for years. Each sheet is thin, self-adhesive and fabric-backed, which makes Neosporin Scar Solution convenient to wear under clothing.
How does Neosporin Scar Solution work?
Neosporin Scar Solution sheets use patented Silon ® technology, and are believed to mimic the natural barrier function of normal skin- improving the appearance of scars, both new and old. Silicone sheets have been shown to improve the appearance of scars, even those that are years old.
One package of Neosporin Scar Solution provides the full, 12-week supply recommended to improve the appearance of scars.
