You can start anti scar treatment as soon as your sutures are removed.
Can use silicone gel sheet also.

Scar modulation treatments like creams, massage, serums and ointments can be used after your stitches have been removed. this would be around 2 weeks of surgery. But you have to consult your surgeon before starting.

you can apply two types of scar cream after 1- 2 week of the procedure: 

  •  Softening cream: it gives you an occlusive effect. It helps to create a seal over your scars by locking the moisture, thus providing protection against bacteria, and assisting in reduced appearance of scars after multiple use. 
  • Silicon cream: Also helps in reducing scars. It helps keep your tissue hydrated, soft, and flatter, because it has a breathable material which is responsible for protecting your scar tissue from itching, sweating, and irritation. 

 Note: 

  •  But before starting with application of cream, ensure that your incisions are fully closed and healed. 
  •  After applying silicon material, always massage your scar to reduce its appearance, as it produces collagen and other proteins.
