Description

Biodermis Gel Sheeting is intended for use in the management and control of old and new hypertrophic or keloid scars resulting from burns or surgical or traumatic injury of the skin. Consistent use of Gel Sheeting can reduce hypertrophic and keloid scarring.

Biodermis Gel Sheeting may be used to aid in the prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scarring when used on closed scars following surgery, trauma, or burns

Epi-Derm Natural

 Epi-Derm Natural FABRIC is beige in colour with a soft fabric backing that tends to do well under clothing - letting fabric slide over it without bunching. Both varieties are made of 100% medical grade silicone.  


All Epi-Derm sheets can be trimmed as needed, providing maximum comfort.

Epi-Derm Silicone Gel C-Strip FABRIC (3.60 x 15.0 cm - contains 1 strip)

Silicone strips designed for C-section and hysterectomy treatment sites. With Epi-Derm silicone gel strips for scars in the C-strip configuration, you can heal your surgical scars beautifully and enjoy swimsuit season.

Directions:

Don't use Silicone gel & sheets together. You can use a silicone sheet at night & Silicone gel during the day.
1.Wash both scar and hands.
2.Open the non-sterile pouch containing the Biodermis Silicone Gel Sheet.
3.Remove the backing and apply the sticky side of the silicone sheets to the scar.
4.The gel sheet may be cut into smaller pieces using scissors or a scalpel. Once you have determined the appropriate size of sheeting to use, apply tacky side to the scar. The gel sheeting should fully cover the scar and extend ¼ inch all the way around the scar border.
5.The exposed surface of the gel sheeting may be covered with surgical tape or bandage to help hold in place and to prevent sticking to other surfaces.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Remove the gel sheet every 12 hours to wash . Gently wash the piece of gel sheeting in the soapy water, rinse, and then air dry. After washing, rinsing and drying the scar site re-apply the piece of gel sheeting.

WEARING TIME
Optimal wearing time for Biodermis 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 above 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.

 

With proper cleaning and average wear-and-tear, each Epi-Derm sheet can last 2-3 weeks.   

The overall optimal period of use is usually 8 to 12 weeks.

How does it work?
Scars need an “ideal healing environment,” meaning the appropriate balance of moisture and maximum exposure to oxygen. Epi-derm™ is a fully-encapsulating sheet — it completely covers the scar treatment site for uniform treatment of the entire site. Although the entire site is covered, Epi–derm™ is semi-permeable, allowing oxygen to enter while keeping excess moisture out — the ideal environment for healing scar tissue.
