In brief: Yes

Silicone topical either as a gel or in the form of a sheet is a very helpful treatment for early scars.

In brief: Silicon sheets

There are those that believe that silicon sheets can lesson the chance of developing a keloid after surgery.
You will need to apply these sheets continuously for up to 6 months with no guarantee of success.
