Natural (fabric backed) Epi-derm® from Biodermis, is soft silicone gel sheeting for treating keloid and hypertrophic scars. Silicone sheets are tacky on the back and easy to apply. Epi-derm silicone gel sheeting is the most effective, proven method of scar management available today.
Optimal wearing time for Epi-Derm Silicone Gel Sheeting is 24 hours per day. If it is not possible to wear the gel sheet for the recommended 24 hour period, a minimum of 12 hours per day is required, washing per the instructions below once in that period. Follow this procedure each day, washing and re-applying the gel sheeting to the scar for 1 to 2 weeks. At that time the piece of gel sheeting will begin to lose its adhesive quality and/or may become embedded with surface dirt. When this occurs, discard the piece of gel sheeting and apply a new piece.
The overall optimal period of use is usually 8 to 12 weeks.
Remove the Epi-Derm every 12 hours to wash both the scar and the gel sheet using SilqueClenz Cleansing Wash. In a basin of warm water, work up a small amount of lather with the cleansing wash. Gently wash the piece of gel sheeting in the soapy water, rinse, and then air dry. Make sure the sheeting is completely dry before re-applying to the scar. After washing, rinsing and drying the scar site re-apply the piece of gel sheeting.
