Better than silicone strips is KelaCort. There are a bunch of gels that are actually better than the strips. I used scarzone and kelacort and both are good. The strips are a bit old school. They are awkward and fall off and expensive. The gels/creams have silicone in them and they rub on and absorb though a very thin film (with kelacort this is what dermatologists in USA routinely give out now). The kela cort can be ordered online from many sources. I think the scarzone is in the apotek in Norway too. I recall buying it once in Stavanger.
