Directions for use: Ensure that the skin is clean and dry.
Apply a very thin layer of Strata mark to the relevant areas with the fingertips and distribute evenly to form a very thin layer and allow the gel to dry.
Stratamark should be applied once per day, or after each wash.
For best results Stratamark should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hrs/day).
When applied correctly, Stratamark should be dry in 3-4 minutes. If it takes longer to dry the patient has probably applied too much. A little amount of gel goes a long way.
Gently remove any excess gel with a tissue or paper towel and allow the drying process to continue.
Once dry, Strata mark can be covered by undergarments, sunscreens or cosmetics.
One 50 g (1.75 oz) tube contains enough gel for approximately two months treatment for women in the late stages of pregnancy.
Recommended duration of treatment: Prevention of stretch marks during pregnancy: Stratamark is recommended for use from the beginning of the second trimester (13 weeks) or at the first sign of stretch marks. Treatment should be continued following birth for a minimum of 60 to 90 days.
Prevention of stretch marks during growth spurts: Stratamark should be used for the duration of the growth spurt or until the skin is no longer tightly stretched. Treatment should then be continued for an additional 60 to 90 days.
Treatment for existing stretch marks: Stratamark should be used for at least 60 to 90 days (24/7).
Continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen. Severe and/or older stretch marks may need longer treatment. Stratamark may also be used in combination with other stretch mark treatments including laser therapy with the advice of the physician.
