Occlusion and hydration of scars: moisturizers versus silicone gels.

Burns 2022 Apr 29. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Burn Center, Ghent University Hospital, C. Heymanslaan 10, 9000 Ghent, Belgium; Department of Plastic Surgery, Ghent University Hospital, C. Heymanslaan 10, 9000 Ghent, Belgium.

It is generally accepted that scar dehydration resulting from impaired barrier function of the stratum corneum and expressed by raised trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) values, can lead to increased fibroblast activity and thereby hypertrophic scar formation. However, we have reached no consensus on exactly what optimal scar hydration is nor on barrier function repair: by means of silicone sheets, liquid silicone gels or moisturizers. Read More
