Cica-Care is durable, comfortable and re-usable, ideal for day and night use. It is also safe to use on children and adults making it suitable for the whole family. Cica-Care can even be used on scars up to 20 years old.
Within 2-4 months, scars you thought were permanent can be treated and their appearance improved - permanently.
Step 1: Wash your hands before use and then gently clean the scar and surrounding skin. Thoroughly dry the area before applying Cica-Care.
Step 2: Peel the lid from the tray containing Cica-Care and remove the gel sheet.
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: Remove the printed plastic sheet to reveal the adhesive.
Step 5: 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.
Step 6: 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. See treatment time and the Cica-Care user diary for more details.
Step 7: Clean Cica-Care twice daily with a mild soap. Once you've cleaned the gel strip, rinse it well.
Step 8: Dry the Cica-Care strip with a non-fluffy towel before re-applying. Ensure the scar and surrounding area is washed too.
