Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! With all of the new baby excitement, people tend to forget that mom just had major surgery! Case studies show that using NewGel+ c-section strips after any staples or stitches have been removed can help make your scar flat and soft while reducing redness, itchiness, tightness and pain. Are you feeling an unpleasant tingly sensation when your clothing rubs against your scar? Our strips are soft and cushiony and help to protect your scar from contact. It's like swaddling your scar to keep it happy and content, just like you do with your baby!
