LifeSil Silicone Sheet is indicated for the treatment of scars and keloids.
A scar is the result of a skin lesion, usually caused by an accident or surgery.
LifeSil Silicone Sheet helps improve the appearance of scars and keloids already formed, decreasing their visibility, lightening the skin, decreasing the length of the lesions, and acting to prevent hypertrophic scarring and keloids resulting from surgical procedures, traumatic lesions, or burns. LifeSil Silicone Sheet also reduces the sensation of itching in the scar tissue.

Instructions for Use
- Remove the dressing from the packaging;
- If necessary, trim the dressing to an appropriate size, but make sure it is big enough to cover the scar or keloid completely;
- Ensure that the area of the wound is clean and dry;
- Peel away the protective liner from the LifeSil Silicone Sheet and place over the scar with the adhesive side in contact with the skin;
- LifeSil Silicone Sheet may be used 24 hours a day, but the skin and the dressing should be cleaned at least once a day, washing with a mild soap then leaving to dry naturally. Drying LifeSil Silicone Sheet with a towel, or leaving it to come into contact with clothing, will decrease its adhesion capacity;
- Change the LifeSil Silicone Sheet sheet every 20 days, or when it begins to lose its adhesiveness. In joints or areas with intense friction, change more frequently;
- LifeSil Silicone Sheet should be used continuously; the treatment períod varies according to the scar, and medical advice;
- Avoid using creams or ointments at the application site of the LifeSil Silicone Sheet, as these may interfere with the adhesion of the sheet;
- LifeSil Silicone Sheet has excellent adhesion to the skin, but in certain areas, like joints, a hypoallergenic sticking plaster may be used to ensure the sheet stays in place. Take care not to adhere the dressing so that the scar is pressed to tightly, as this may cause irritation of the scar;
- LifeSil Silicone Sheet can be used under compression garments;
LifeSil Silicone Sheet should be stored away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Although this product is resistant to external environmental factors, it is recommended that these guidelines be followed.
