I have a large area on lower leg that had to heal packed as no skin for closure. Size 10x7 inches, 2 inches deep. Healed well but plastic surgeon afraid it would become thick and ropey causing problems.Ordered this product. After 3 months scar starting to flatten and ropiness at one end softening.One area of very thin skin,last area to heal will break down if worn more than 10 hours. Off every night, reapplied daily and lasts at least 2weeks.Not worn in shower. Edges do curl up so also bought the tape strips and reinforce the edges to be able to prolong wearing.

was recommended by my doctor to use mepiform after a bad bike accident where my whole right side of my face had road rash and this silicone strips really work. I just cut the sizes I need and I'm still on my first one a month later. Would recommend for deep cuts and stitches. Noticed a difference in 2 days

I was given this by my surgeon for my BA a few years ago and it worked wonder. Now I purchased this online for my lipo incisions, the envelope came sealed but inside the sheets were bubbly and I found doesn't stick as strong as before. I opened 2 of them and both were bubbly. Not sure if it was supposed to be like that.

I've only been using for a a couple of weeks on csection scar so I can't really attest to scar healing ability, but it does stay stuck on for a week at a time and doesn't irritate my skin (I often have problems with adhesives). I have washed and reapplied also. I cut lengthwise to get two out of one.
