CICA-CARE™ Gel Sheet is a patented technically advanced form of silicone gel sheet for scar care.
Self-adhesive silicone gel layer
Non-adherent outer silicone membrane
Improves the appearance of scars
Widely used by hospitals, dermatologists, and surgeons for the management of hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Easy to use
The CICA-CARE™ adhesive gel sheet is soft, comfortable and simple to apply. It can be cut to size to fit most scars. Durable and reusable, it can be used day or night.
The skin contact side of CICA-CARE™ is self adhesive, while the upper side is a strengthening non-adhesive silicone membrane. Therefore secondary fixation may not be required, making the product more user friendly, and can lead to higher patient compliance.
The silicone membrane and gel combination make CICA-CARE™ more durable and less likely to “crumble” in comparison to other silicone gel sheets.
CICA-CARE™ is a very conformable silicone gel sheet. Because it is self-adhesive, CICA-CARE™ can be easily used in many awkward anatomical locations, including earlobes and sternal areas.
One piece of CICA-CARE™ can be easily washed and reused. Once it becomes difficult to clean, a new piece should be used. This usually occurs after 14 to 28 day intervals.
CICA-CARE™ is durable and reusable. Each cut piece lasts up to 28 days in use, making it a cost effective regime.
CICA-CARE™ is intended for use as follows:
For the management of hypertrophic and keloid scars.
May prevent the formation of hypertrophic and keloid scars.
For use only on intact skin.
For covering hypertrophic and Keloid scars as a means of reducing the size and erythema of scars resulting from burns, trauma and surgery.
Instruction for Use:
Wash hands before and after use.
Gently clean the scar and surrounding skin with a mild soap and rinse in clean warm water. Thoroughly dry the scar and surrounding skin.
Remove gel sheet from tray.
Cut gel sheet, to fit scar size, with a small overlap over the surrounding skin.
Remove printed plastic sheet.
Apply gel sheet, adhesive side to the scar, without stretching. If necessary a light bandage can be used to keep CICA-CARE ™ in place.
For first two days use CICA-CARE ™ for 4 hours per day.
For next two days use CICA-CARE ™ for 8 hours per day.
Continue to increase wear time by 2 hours per day until a minimum of 12 hours per day is reached. If possible CICA-CARE ™ should be worn 24 hours per day.
Wash CICA-CARE ™, the scar and surrounding skin, at least once a day with mild soap and rinse in clean warm water.
Dry with a cloth towel.
When CICA-CARE ™ begins to wear or cleaning is difficult, it should be replaced. This usually occurs after 14-28 day intervals. When used correctly the best results are seen after 2-4 months.
