How do I use it? 

Wash your hands before use and then gently clean the scar and surrounding skin. Thoroughly dry the area before applying CICA-CARE.
Peel the lid from the tray containing CICA-CARE and remove the gel sheet.
With a pair of scissors, cut the sheet to the size of the scar - allowing a little overlap all the way round. Store the remaining gel sheet in a dry place, like the tray the gel came in.
Remove the printed plastic sheet to reveal the adhesive.
Apply CICA-CARE, adhesive side down, to the scarred area without stretching the strip. If your scar is in an awkward position you may wish to use a light bandage or tape to keep Cica-Care in position. Do not hold the gel sheet too tightly to the skin as this may cause irritation of the scar and surrounding area.
CICA-CARE should be applied to the scar for 4 hours on the first two days of use. The application time should then be increased by 2 hours a day to enable your skin to get used to the gel strip.
Clean CICA-CARE twice daily with a mild soap. Once you've cleaned the gel strip, rinse it well.
Dry the CICA-CARE strip with a non-fluffy towel before re-applying. Ensure the scar and surrounding area is washed too.

Treatment Times

Treatment times vary from person to person and depends on the nature of the scarring. However, on average and if used correctly you can expect best results after 2-4 months.

At first, CICA-CARE should be applied to the scar for 2 hours a day, building up by 2 hours a day to allow your skin to get used to the gel strip.

CICA-CARE can be washed and re-used. Each strip lasts between 14 and 28 days, making it a very cost-effective scar treatment.

 

Cleaning CICA-CARE

To remain fully effective, we recommend CICA-CARE is cleaned twice daily. During warm weather or during periods of increased physical activity, CICA-CARE should be cleaned more frequently to maintain maximum contact between the gel strip and the treatment area.

Cleaning CICA-CARE is straightforward. Simply wash the strip with a mild soap. Avoid using any other household cleaning products.

To dry CICA-CARE after cleaning, use a non-fluffy (lint free) cloth and, before reapplying, clean your scar area too.

For your comfort and convenience, CICA-CARE can be removed for you to wash and bathe as normal.

Warnings

CICA-CARE is for use on intact skin and must not be used on open or infected wounds or over scabs or stitches. See pack insert on instructions for use and in-use precautions. If uncertain consult a medical professional.

Do not use ointments or creams under the gel sheet. In some cases a rash may appear; this has been attributed to either poor hygiene or the product being applied too tightly. If a rash appears, reduce product wear time. Should it persist, please consult your doctor.

Do not use on skin currently affected by acne.
