How Long Do I Need To Use Cica-Care?

Treatment times vary from person to person and depends on the nature of the scarring. However, on average and if used correctly you can expect best results after 2-4 months.

At first, Cica-Care should be applied to the scar for 2 hours a day, building up by 2 hours a day to allow your skin to get used to the gel strip.

Cica-Care can be washed and re-used. Each strip lasts between 14 and 28 days, making it a very cost-effective scar treatment.

How To Use
  1. Wash your hands before use and then gently clean the scar and surrounding skin. Thoroughly dry the area before applying Cica-Care
  2. Peel the lid from the tray containing Cica-Careand remove the gel sheet.
  3. With a pair of scissors, cut the sheet to the size of the scar - allowing a little overlap all the way round. Store the remaining gel sheet in a dry place, like the tray the gel came in.
  4. Remove the printed plastic sheet to reveal the adhesive.
  5. Apply Cica-Care, adhesive side down, to the scarred area without stretching the strip. If your scar is in an awkward position you may wish to use a light bandage or tape to keep Cica-Care in position. Do not hold the gel sheet too tightly to the skin as this may cause irritation of the scar and surrounding area.
  6. Cica-Care should be applied to the scar for 4 hours on the first two days of use. The application time should then be increased by 2 hours a day to enable your skin to get used to the gel strip. 
  7. Clean Cica-Care twice daily with a mild soap. Once you've cleaned the gel strip, rinse it well.
  8. Dry the Cica-Care strip with a non-fluffy towel before re-applying. Ensure the scar and surrounding area is washed too.
  • Do not use ointments or creams under the gel sheet
  • Do not use on skin currently affected by acne

Cleaning Cica-Care Scar Gel Sheets

To remain fully effective, we recommend Cica-Care is cleaned twice daily. During warm weather or during periods of increased physical activity, Cica-Care should be cleaned more frequently to maintain maximum contact between the gel strip and the treatment area.

Cleaning Cica-Care is straightforward. Simply wash the strip with a mild soap. Avoid using any other household cleaning products.

To dry Cica-Care after cleaning, use a non-fluffy (lint free) cloth and, before reapplying, clean your scar area too.

For your comfort and convenience, Cica-Care can be removed for you to wash and bathe as normal.
