POSSIBLE REACTIONS INCLUDE:
Superficial maceration of the skin Skin discoloration
Rashes may occur on skin under gel-pad due to poor hygiene. Rashes may also result from wrapping gel-pad too tightly around skin. Stop use and ask a doctor if gel-pad is applied properly and skin irritation still occurs.
Discoloration of skin covered by gel-pad may temporarily occur in patients with darker complexions.
Do not use creams, lotions, sun block, or other silicone products on your skin when wearing gel-pad. Only apply gel-pad to clean, bare skin.
PRECAUTIONS: Do not apply to open wounds or third degree burns. Never use on a sutured wound
until sutures have been removed or when any dermatological conditions disrupt the
skin (such as a rash or burn). In rare instances, silicone sheets may cause a rash on the
skin. This condition may result from improper cleansing of the scar area where the
gel-pad has been applied. Stop use and ask a doctor if product is applied properly
and skin irritation still occurs. Persons with dermatological disorders should contact
their doctor prior to using this product.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
1) Wash your hands and the scar area with soap and water. Dry thoroughly.
2) Cut the Gel-Pad to fit the scar area as needed, so that the edges extend at
least 1/4” beyond the scar on all sides.
3) Gently peel the gel-pad from the mylar release strip (it is normal for small
bits of the gel to remain on the mylar release strip). Do not discard the mylar
4) Place the sticky side of the gel-pad directly onto the scar. For best results,
wear the gel-pad 8-12 hours per treatment. Wait 8-12 hours without use
before next treatment.
5) When not wearing the gel-pad, place the gel-pad (sticky side) back onto
the mylar release strip. Place the gel-pad back into the original pouch for protection.
6) When the sticky side of the gel-pad appears dirty or worn, use your finger
to gently wash the gel-pad with soap and water, as needed. Rinse with water
and allow to air dry. The stickiness will return once dry. Do not fold while
washing or drying.
The gel-pad is effective as long as it retains its stickiness. After several applications the
gel-pad may appear worn out but if it sticks to the skin it will keep working. Proper use and
gentle care of the gel-pad will be re-usable up to eight (8) days.
