MediClear™ Scar is a self-adherent silicone film dressing consisting of a polyurethane film coated with a soft silicone adhesive gel that intimately adheres to the contours of the scar. Designed as a prophylactic therapy on closed wounds.
• Can be worn comfortably and continuously for up to seven days

MediClear™ Scar is indicated to help prevent and/or manage hypertrophic and keloid scars as well as the management of both old and new hypertrophic and keloid scars.
On surgical incisions, use MediClear™ Scar only after sutures have been removed and the site is fully closed. MediClear™ Scar is for external use only. Do not use ointments or creams under the dressing. The skin should be dry and free of detergent residue to prevent skin irritation and to ensure good adhesion. Do not use on open wounds or where the skin integrity is compromised.

Ensure the scar and surrounding skin is clear and dry before MediClear™ Scar application. Open the packaging and remove the dressing. Peel one side of the white liner, exposing the silicone adhesive. If needed, use the frame's tab to avoid touching the adhesive. Place the exposed adhesive on the skin and smooth the dressing over the skin. Avoid stretching when applying over joints. Hold the flap of the remaining white liner and peel off and smooth the dressing over the skin towards the edges. Apply continuous light pressure until the entire dressing is adhered to the skin.
MediClear™ Scar should be optimally worn for 24 hours a day for up to seven days, and should be changed as necessary or if the dressing becomes too loose, soiled, or comprimised in any way. Total therapy time should be in the range of two to four months.
