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.

I bought these for my hypertrophic csection scar. I've only been using them for three weeks and the edges of the scar have faded to a flat white already. I cut the sheets down to size and wear them almost 24 hours a day (I take them off to shower and work out). There's no irritation and the strips stay put once applied.

I had a tummy tuck and the surgeon suggested I use this for 6 months on my incision scar. He states it is evidence- based effective at decreasing the appearance of the scar. I wear the same silicone dressing for a week, taking it off to shower and then reapply. I normally have scars that become quite red and raised ( keloid). I have currently used for 3 months and my scar is looking quite good.
