Scar dressings are an important aspect of wound care and play a crucial role in preventing and treating unattractive scars. When the skin's outer layer is damaged, the body will naturally form a scar as part of the healing process. While most scars eventually fade over time, some can become Hypertrophic and detract from one's appearance. To mitigate this, silicone gel sheeting can be used as a preventive and treatment method. This type of dressing helps to minimize the appearance of scars by reducing redness, itching, and discomfort, allowing for a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing outcome. By using a scar dressing, you can improve the appearance of scars and promote the healing process.
Cica-Care dressing is a self- adherent reusable silicone gel sheet that is effective in the treatment of red, dark or raised scars, both old and new. The Cica-Care dressing can be used on the children and adults and can even be used on scars up to 20 years old. When the dressing is applied, it occludes the skin to hydrate the scar area. It helps to lock the moisture into the skin around the scar, reducing the blood supply and deposit of collagen, which the body uses to rebuild deeply wounded skin. The dressing is used to make the scar tissue paler in colour, more like the natural colour of your skin. Cica-Care can be applied to scars caused by surgery, accidents, cuts and burns, and injury to any body part, including the face.
