Mepiform scar pads are used to reduce old or new scars that are red and raised. The dressing is micro-thin and has an adhesive that enables it to stay on for up to a week, and it is available in different sizes. This silicone dressing is particularly helpful in reducing the redness and raised tissue that is often seen in hypertrophic scars and keloids.
Types of scars that improve
Mepiform scar pads can be used on both newly formed areas and old ones as well. It also works well to prevent red and raised areas from forming on a newly healed wound that has closed. It has shown little to no improvement in old white marks on the skin that are flat, but it is very effective on red raised areas, according to clinical studies. In addition, professionals agree that the use of silicone is effective in managing these formations on the skin.

The wound must be closed completely before use, and it should not be applied over a scab. It is also important not to use this product on a wound that has become infected.

Medical professionals have agreed for some time that silicone gel dressings improve or eradicate the body of red, raised scars.
