Warnings and Precautions

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.

Hypertrophic Scars/Keloids

Mode of Use/Application

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 2 days use CICA-CARE* for 4 hours per day. For next 2 days use CICA-CARE* for 8 hours per day. Continue to increase wear time by two 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.

Removal & Change Frequency

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 to 4 months.
