In brief: Generally No

The data for silicone in scarring is very poor. It is mostly a waste of money.
Fro some scars there are laser modalities that work well.

In brief: While it does

Work for hypertrophic scars, and there's plenty of scientific evidence from the burn and plastic surgery literature, it's not so great for keloid scars - those are very challenging.
