Minimize the look of new and existing scars with this topical silicone gel. Made with a unique silicone technology, Strataderm creates a self-drying, transparent, flexible, gas-permeable, waterproof gel sheet that adheres directly to the skin, covering your scar to ensure it heals properly. It also helps lessen the redness and elevation of existing scars, to make them less noticeable, when used continuously for three months.

- Studies from the brand have shown that silicone gel sheets have been proven efficacious in not only the treatment but also the prevention of keloid (firm, smooth growth) and hypertrophic (thick, raised) scars. Applying silicone gel sheets post-surgery after wound healing prevented the development of those types of scars in 75% to 85% of cases.
- Silicone gels like Strataderm provide the same benefits as silicone gel sheeting in a topical product that won’t cause maceration—when excess moisture causes skin to look and feel wrinkled, pale, and soft.
- In an observational study, more than 80% of both patients and doctors rated silicone gel as good or very good at decreasing the redness, hardness, elevation, itching, and pain of recent scars over a three-month period.
Clean and dry the scar area, then apply a very thin layer over top of scar. Wait three to four minutes for gel to dry so that it creates a transparent, flexible film on the skin. For best results, Strataderm should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin 24 hours a day, seven days a week for a period of 60 to 90 days. Apply once daily.RealSelf tips:
If Strataderm takes longer than four minutes to dry on your skin, you’ve most likely applied it too thick. Use a tissue to lightly wipe away excess gel and wait for the remainder to dry.
To prevent further damage to the skin or worsening of the scar’s appearance, be sure to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher on top of your Strataderm application, once it has fully dried.
Remember that Strataderm is meant only for scars—it should not be used on wounds that are open or still healing. For post-surgery care, use Stratpharma Stratamed; for post-fractional procedures, use Stratpharma Stratacel.
