Cica-Care Gel Sheet for Scar 12/6 x 1
CICA-CARE Adhesive Gel Sheet for Scar Care: CICA-CARE 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
CICA-CARE has been medically proven to be effective in patient trials in the flattening, softening and fading of red and raised scars, both old and new in up to 90% of cases.
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 a 28 day interval.
CICA-CARE is durable and reusable. Each cut piece lasts for up to 28 days of use, making it a cost effective regime.
CICA-CARE is designed for use:
• in the management of both existing and new hypertrophic and keloid scars (red and raised).
• as a preventative therapy on closed wounds to prevent hypertrophic and keloid scars (red and raised).
Contraindications / Precautions
CICA-CARE is contraindicated for patients with complicating medical factors which would make them unable to use the dressing properly and in patients with dermatological conditions which disrupt the integrity of the skin in the areas of coverage. Do not use on open or infected wounds. Do not use on skin, currently affected by acne.
Follow the instructions for use carefully.
Do not use unless the skin surrounding the scar or closed wound is regular. Do not use with ointments or creams under the gel sheet. In some patients, a rash has been observed on the scar and surrounding skin. Should a rash occur, reduce the duration of CICA-CARE treatment to 12 hours on, 12 hours off. If the rash persists, discontinue use and consult your physician or medical advisor.
On surgical incisions, use CICA-CARE only after the sutures have been removed.
