REMEMBER: ScarErase™ strips will last longer when you take care of them and use them properly. These are our recommendations to ensure your silicone strips last and work effectively. They will provide your best results. ScarErase™ strips and sheets are created to be reusable. Follow these instructions to clean and reapply.
- First peel off the two protective layers to expose the ScarErase™ strip.
- Place the exposed adhesive side over the scar.
- Press the strip gently to adhere to the skin. The ScarErase™ strip should overlap your scar on all sides.
- Remove, wash, and reapply daily.
Note: The new self adhesive ScarErase™ does not require tape to apply to your scar and keep the strip secured.
Caring for ScarErase™ Strips:
- Gently wash the ScarErase™ strip (adhesive side) with a mild soap and water.
- Dry the strip completely before you re-apply it daily.
Note: Skin oils will ultimately reduce the adhesiveness that is why it is important to wash the ScarErase™ as directed.
Results from ScarErase™:
You should see some results in 7 to 10 days. Most results will occur within 8 to 12 weeks. Even if the adhesive wears off the strip will still provide it’s effect by just taping it to your skin or better yet order our Value Packs or Roll if you need more.
Using ScarErase™ as directed will help you effectively manage the treatment and removal of your scar. We all heal at different rates so be advised it takes time for ScarErase™ to affect your scar. You should begin to see results within 10 days.
If your strips lose their adhesiveness:
When your ScarErase™ loses it’s adhesiveness it is still effective, to continue using it you can purchase a non-allergenic tape at a pharmacy to hold it in place or just reorder additional strips or a roll and apply as directed.
Additionally, ScarErase™ needs to be in contact with your scar for the most effective results. Begin by wearing it for an hour or more and increasing the usage until you can wear ScarErase™ for at least 8 hours daily. Clean it as directed and reapply it. Eventually you should be able to wear ScarErase™ for up to 24 hours a day.
