How does CicaLux work?
CicaLux can be used as early as 3 to 6 weeks after surgery—after stitches or staples have been removed and the scar is completely closed and dry.
CicaLux works in a number of ways;
Compression – This helps to flatten and prevent the thickening of scar tissue. CicaLux’s silicone sheet is smooth and gentle on the skin, and does not pull or tug on the underlying scar tissue.
Hydration – The silicone sheet helps to prevent moisture loss, which is beneficial to the healing process. Silicone sheets have been shown to improve itchiness of the scar site and pigmentation changes.
It is breathable! – The CicaLux silicone sheet and tape allow the skin to breathe – reducing the likelihood that the skin will soften and break down due to prolonged exposure to moisture. The CicaLux tape also provides for hygiene and security as it is single-use, replaced daily.
Its reusable and washable! The CicaLux Silicone sheet is reusable and durable. It is easy to handle, non-stick and is so easy to clean with soap and water. The CicaLux stone is natural and hand-crafted making it durable and reusable.
Heat Therapy – The CicaLux stone provides infrared (IR) heat therapy sessions, known to help blood flow, improve healing and provide soothing pain relief. In fact IR therapy has been used for centuries for a variety therapies, including wound therapy and providing pain relief for new mums with c-section scars. The Cicalux stone can be removed at anytime and used separately to aid finger massaging of the scar tissue.
Tension relief – The CicaLux tape relieves the stress on the scar while compressing and securing the silicone sheet for optimised performance. Keeping the skin together on each side of incision helps to prevent widening or voids where the scar tissue can fill and increase the risk of scaring. The CicaLux tape adheres only to the healthier skin surrounding the scar line – by doing this it prevents any direct pulling or tugging of the scar tissue itself.
