Features of the Smith & Nephew Cica-Care Adhesive Silicone Gel Sheet:
Cica-Care is a patented technically advanced form of silicone gel sheet for scar care.
Cica-Care has been medically proven in patient trials to be effective, in up to 90% of cases by flattening, softening and fading red and raised scars.
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 and 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 14 to 28 day intervals.
