Silagen Clear Strips are a silicone sheeting that reduces the appearance and texture of scars. Apply to clean skin, over a dry, closed wound only. Wear minimally 8 hours and up to 23 hours/day. Remove when showering or exercising. When strip loses adhesiveness, the patient can wash the sheet with mild soap and water to remove the dirt and oils and adhesiveness will return. Gel sheeting should last up to 3-4 weeks.
