Dr. Toohey and Toohey Plastic Surgery offer NewGel+™ to the residents of Newport Beach and Orange County, California.

A number of people are plagued by scars caused by injuries, surgery, or skin disorders. Most of them simply put up with these scars because they believe there is nothing they can do about them. NewGel+™ is a product that has been effective in treating a variety of scars by Toohey Plastic Surgery.

NewGel+™ is a medical-grade product that is only available at select medical clinics. It consists of silicone sheeting that will lighten and fade scars with consistent use. It is even effective on raised scars, as the silicone in NewGel+™ tends to flatten them so they are no longer protruding from the surface of the skin.

In some instances, it might be necessary to use NewGel+™ in conjunction with NewGel+E™ ointment. This is a cream that contains Vitamin E along with silicone. Those who have especially large or dark scars may need to use NewGel+™ during the day and NewGel+E™ at night to help hydrate and nourish the skin.

The silicone in NewGel+™ ointment acts as a barrier to keep air from penetrating the scar. This, in turn, speeds the healing process so the appearance of the scar can be reduced. After daily use, many patients report noticing results in as little as three weeks, but it can take up to 13 weeks to obtain the maximum results.

After using NewGel+™ for a three-month period, dramatic results can be obtained. The best results can be expected on surgical scars and burns. Not all scars will completely disappear, but they should be much less noticeable than before. NewGel+™ is effective on old and new scars alike, although it may take somewhat longer for older scars to fade than it will for newer ones.

NewGel+™ should not be used on open sores or wounds. It should also not be used in conjunction with any other creams or ointments, as this could affect the skin’s ability to absorb this product. It is important to keep the scar area clean and dry during treatment. NewGel+™ sheeting and ointment should be worn for a minimum of six hours each day. The more time these products are allowed to come into contact with the skin, the better the overall results are likely to be.
