How to Fade a Burn Scar

Save

In today's society, it's important to make a good first impression. First impressions will often determine how crowds and other people will act toward you. The easiest first impression is a clean, well-groomed appearance. One of the hardest appearance flaws to hide or repair is burn scars, which will often leave large discolored and sunken scars in your flesh. There is an easy and cost-effective way to fade pesky burn scars at your own convenience.

Things You'll Need

  • Silicone sheet
  • Place the silicone sheet over your burn scar so that you are using a small corner of the silicone sheet instead of cutting out of the middle of the silicone sheet. Use a pencil to lightly mark how much of the silicone sheet you are going to need to use to cover your burn scar.

  • Use a pair of scissors or a small knife to cut the marked section of the silicone sheet off.

  • Place the silicone sheet over the burn scar, and press firmly so that the silicone sheet will stick to your skin and completely cover your burn scar.

  • Leave the silicone sheet on until the normally damp sheet is dry or for as long as the instructions state. If the sheet is somehow torn or falls off before it was suppose to be removed, apply a fresh sheet using a little more than you did last time (see Reference 1).

  • After you are done with the first sheet, leave the scar alone for a day. This will allow the skin to naturally heal from any side effects the sheets might have, such as bleaching. Cut a similar sheet the next day, and apply it like you did the first time. Repeat this process until the burn scar is faded and no longer noticeable.

Tips & Warnings

  • Some people who suffer from burn scars will combine the use of silicone sheets with scar-healing gels to achieve a faster fading. If you want to do this, use the silicone sheets during leisure time at home, and apply the gel to the burn scar while you are out and about. If your burn scar seems tender after using the silicone sheets, stop immediately and check to see if you are allergic to any of the active ingredients.
