Gently clean the scar area with mild soap and water and pat dry. Remove sheeting from plastic bag and cut to a size slightly larger than area to be treated to make sure all of the scar is covered.For specialty design-cut sheets, it is not necessary to cut sheet before placing on scar.
- Remove protective plastic film from sheeting and apply sticky side of sheeting to affected area for about 8 hours daily. Depending on scar age and depth, scar should begin to become less visible between 7 to 90 days.
Use until desired results are obtained. If necessary, sheeting may be cleaned by rinsing with water and drying thoroughly before reuse. Store sheeting in ziplock pouch when not in use. A drying rack is included with each sheet.
Caution: Do not use on open wounds. If scar persists, redness, irritation (rash or inflammation), infection or maceration (whitening of skin) occurs discontinue use and consult your physician. Do not use talcum powder, skin moisturizers, lotions, sunscreen or any topical medications on area to be treated while using sheeting. Apply new sheet when current sheet is no longer adherent.
Humid Environments & Sweating
As moisture is trapped between the sheets and the skin, it is recommended to purchase 2 sheets so that one is always clean, dry, and ready to be applied (again, the skin will need to be washed and dry before applying the new sheet).
