Scar Formation1

After the epidermis has regenerated, scar formation begins to take place:
  • Outer layer of stratum corneum is immature and allows high transepidermal water loss
  • Dehydration stimulates keratinocytes to produce cytokines, which leads to collagen release
  • Excessive collagen can cause the undesired effects of scarring

USES:

SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad is intended for use in the management, control, and prevention of old and new hypertrophic or keloid scars resulting from burns or surgical or traumatic injury of the skin.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Do not use on open wounds, sutured wounds or when any dermatologlcal conditions disrupt the skin (such as a rash).

HOW SUPPLIED:

Non-sterile product is labeled as such and supplied in a protective package within a protective outer container.

Warning, Precautions, Adverse Reactions:

Possible Complications Include:

  • Superficial maceration of the skin
  • Skin discoloration
  • Sheeting tack and thickness vary
  • Rash
  • Pruritus

Rashes have been observed on skin under the gel sheeting. This has been attributed to poor or insufficient hygiene. Similar rashes have been attributed to gel sheeting being wrapped too tightly. Should a rash or irritation of the skin occur, stop use of the gel sheeting for at least 12 hours or until the rash or irritation completely subsides. If the rash persists, a physician should be contacted, and gel sheeting use should be discontinued.

Discoloration of the skin covered by silicone gel sheeting has been reported, particularly in dark skinned patients. This effect appears to be transient and may be similar to the discoloration experienced whenever an area of skin is covered for extended periods of time.

Perception of tack is subjective, and the adhesive characteristic of the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad may vary. These variations do not affect the function of the product.

Small bubbles may form after repeated use and washing. This does not have an impact on the function of the product.

Do not use creams, lotions, sun block or other silicone products on your skin when wearing SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad. These products will create a barrier between the scar site and SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad, preventing a proper healing environment.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
  1. Wash your hands and the scar area with soap and water. Dry thoroughly.
  2. Measure the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad to fit the scar area so that the edges of the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad extend at least 1/4″ beyond the scar on all sides. Cut as needed.
  3. Gently peel the SILTREX® Silicone 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 release strip.
  4. Place the sticky side of the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad directly onto the scar. For best results, wear the pad 8-12 hours per treatment. Wait 8-12 hours without use before next treatment.
  5. When not wearing the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad, place the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad (sticky side) back onto the mylar release strip. Place the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad back into the original pouch for protection.
  6. When the sticky side of the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad appears dirty or worn, use your finger to gently wash the SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad with anti-bacterial 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.
PRECAUTIONS:

Do not apply to an open wound or third degree burn. Never use on a sutured wound until sutures have been removed. 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 silicone pad has been applied. If this product is applied properly and skin irritation still occurs, discontinue use and consult your physician. Persons with dermatological conditions should contact their physician prior to using this product.

CALL YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT SIDE EFFECTS. YOU MAY REPORT SIDE EFFECTS TO FDA AT 1-800-FDA-1088.
