Use of a glycerin-based gel sheeting in scar management.

Author information

Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.


Management of hypertrophic and keloid scars can be difficult. This article presents an initial report on use of a glycerin-based gel sheeting to manage or prevent these scars. The results were comparable to those achieved with silicone sheeting, a typical treatment. Clinically, the glycerin-based sheeting was well tolerated, appeared to be effective, and was less expensive than the silicone sheeting. A prospective study will be done to confirm these findings.
