PMID:  4092154     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A silicone gel (Dow Corning X7-9119) has been successfully used in the management of hypertrophic scars. The gel softens and reduces scars in a shorter time period than pressure therapy. Relevant properties of the material and its mode of action have been investigated. The mode of action is unknown, but it is not due to pressure, temperature, oxygen tension or occlusion.
