Strataderm 5 g (0.17oz) is enough to treat a 2-3 cm (1-2 inch) linear scar for over 90 days.
Strataderm 10 g (0.35 oz) is enough to treat a 5-7 cm (2-3 inch) linear scar for over 90 days.
Recommended duration of treatment: Strataderm is recommended as a minimum treatment of 60-90 days (24 hours a day / 7 days a week). Larger and older scars may take longer. Continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen.
Directions for use: Ensure that the scar is clean and dry. Apply a very thin layer of Strataderm to the scar and allow to dry.
Strataderm should be applied once daily, or twice daily to exposed areas or as advised by the physician. For best results Strataderm should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day).
When applied correctly, Strataderm should be dry in 3-4 minutes. If it takes longer to dry the patient has probably applied too much. Gently remove the excess with a tissue and allow the drying process to continue.
Once dry, Strataderm can be covered by sun screen, cosmetics, pressure garments or casts.
