What is NewGel+ Silicone Sheeting?
NewGel+ is specially formulated 100% medical grade silicone gel sheeting proven to reduce, flatten, fade and smooth scars – both old and new. It is self-adhesive and worn directly on the scar. It is available in both clear and beige backings as pictured to the left. The clear is more flexible and the beige is more durable.
What is NewGel+E Advanced Silicone Gel?
NewGel+E is medical grade topical silicone gel with vitamin E added.
Although silicone sheeting is considered the first choice for scar management, NewGel+E silicone gel was developed for use when sheeting would be inconvenient, hard to secure or unsightly.
For optimal results, use NewGel+ silicone sheeting whenever possible and NewGel+E gel whenever the sheeting is not being used to provide 24 hour-a-day coverage. DO NOT USE BOTH PRODUCTS AT THE SAME TIME. Getting NewGel+E gel on NewGel+ sheeting will cause the sheeting to lose all adhesiveness.
How do they work?
NewGel+ silicone sheeting improves scars by providing a combination of occlusion (seals the scar from exposure to air), hydration, elevated skin temperature and continuous light pressure.
NewGel+E silicone gel improves scars by providing a combination of occlusion (seals the scar from exposure to air) and hydration.
