    - Thoroughly dry the area before applying Cica-Care
    Step 2:
    - Peel the lid from the tray containing Cica-Care and remove the gel sheet
    Step 3:
    - With a pair of scissors, cut the sheet to the size of the scar - allowing a little overlap all the way round
    - Store the remaining gel sheet in a cool dry place, like the tray the gel came in
    Step 4:
    - Remove the printed plastic sheet to reveal the adhesive
    Step 5:
    - Apply adhesive side down, to the scarred area without stretching the strip
    - If scar is in an awkward position you may wish to use a light bandage or tape to keep in position
    - Do not hold the gel sheet too tightly to the skin as this may cause irritation of the scar and surrounding area
    Step 6:
    - Cica-Care should be applied to the scar for 4 hours on the first two days of use
