The Next Generation in Proven Scar Care
SILTREX® Silicone Gel Pads are intended for the management and care of scar tissue, including hypertrophic and keloid scars
Softer, flatter scars are possible by the increased hydration of the stratum corneum (the uppermost layer of the skin)
SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad may help heal scars by balancing the expression of growth factors including the regulation of collagen
SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad helps heal and may protect scars by shielding the skin from bacteria
SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad assists in disrupting the scar formation process, helping to possibly prevent as well as heal scars
Unlike messy creams, roll-ons and gel formulas, SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad stays in place for the recommended 8 hours per day
SILTREX® Silicone Gel-Pad can be cut to fit and adhere to any size hypertrophic or keloid scar

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.
Do not use on open wounds, sutured wounds or when any dermatologlcal conditions disrupt the skin (such as a rash).
Non-sterile product is labeled as such and supplied in a protective package within a protective outer container.
Possible Complications Include:
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.
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.
