Ciltech® Scar Management Application Techniques

General Guidance  

  • Before applying any Ciltech® treatment, wash skin in mild soap and water and dry thoroughly.
  • Continue Ciltech® gel or sheet treatment for at least two months or longer if necessary.
  • Ciltech® should not be used on broken skin, wounds or mucous membranes.
  • Do not use Ciltech® sheets or gel over topical steroids.
  • For external use only.


  • Apply gel as a very thin film and leave to dry completely.
  • Gel can be applied to all parts of the body.
  • Re apply gel twice daily or more frequently if required.


  • Ciltech® sheets should be placed directly on the skin over the scar – medical tape can be used to supplement self-adhesive properties, if required.
  • Leave sheet in place for 24 hours then remove and re-apply after washing skin.
  • Apply new sheet every 3-7 days depending on dressing condition.
  • Ciltech® should be used continuously for at least 2 months.

Some scars may need a longer period of continuous treatment before an improvement can be seen.
