Description

Details

Item number: NG-146

Uses: Designed to conform to the nose for treatment after certain surgical procedures. Safe for use on children aged two years and older.

  • Developed by doctors for use in hospitals and clinics, NewGel+ Nose Shapes are specially formulated medical grade silicone gel sheeting, clinically proven to reduce, flatten, fade and smooth scars – both old and new.
  • NewGel+ Nose Shapes offer a safe, effective, non-invasive method to manage and improve scars.
  • NewGel+ Nose Shapes work through a combination of occlusion (seals the scar from exposure to air/bacteria), hydration, elevated skin temperature and continuous light pressure.
  • Positive results can be seen in as little as 3 weeks.
  • Works on a wide variety of scars, both old and new.
  • Beige backing is thicker and slightly more durable than the clear backing. Clear backing is thinner and more conformable. Both are equally effective and contain the same amount of silicone.
  • Contains no latex.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Size: Each package contains two 2 3/8 inch x 2 3/4 inch (6.0 x 7.0 cm) nose shapes

Directions

Directions:

  • Begin using NewGel+ when scar is closed and/or sutures have been removed. Do not use on any open wound.
  • Remove NewGel+ from the package. If needed, cut and trim so that it extends at least 1/2 inch (1 centimeter) beyond the area to be treated.
  • Wash and dry the area being treated every time you apply NewGel+.
  • Peel off release liner and apply NewGel+, adhesive side down, directly on area being treated.
  • Make sure the scar site is free of creams, lotions and ointments (including NewGel+E gel) as they will cause NewGel+ to lose adhesiveness.
  • Although NewGel+ is self-adhesive, if needed, it can be secured with our NewGel+ Tape or NewGel+ Elastic Netting
  • NewGel+ sheeting should be worn every day for 6 to 23 hours. For best results it can be worn continuously but should be removed once per day for inspection of the site and to allow the site to be washed and dried.
  • NewGel+ should be worn every day for a minimum of 2 months. Additional improvement may occur with continued use up to 6 months.
  • When NewGel+ becomes dirty or loses adhesiveness, wash gently with tap water and mild hand soap then air-dry before reapplying.
  • If you have highly sensitive skin, begin using NewGel+ for 4 hours per day for the first 4 days to determine any possible reaction. Thereafter, increase usage time.
  • NewGel+ should be replaced when it deteriorates, disintegrates or will no longer stick. Each piece should last 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Keep packaging for storage of the product when not in use.

For Optimal Results:

  • Use NewGel+ sheeting as your primary treatment and NewGel+E gel when sheeting would be inconvenient or hard to secure.
  • Do not use both products at the same time.

Precautions:

  • Do not begin using NewGel+ until your scar site is completely closed (sutures removed, no oozing)
  • As with any product applied directly to the skin, some type of reaction (rash) may occur in people with sensitive skin.
  • If a reaction occus, wash and dry the area and reapply the product for shorter periods.
  • If a rash or serious itching continues, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
