Directions

Clean and dry skin. If desired, a thin layer of compound benzoin tincture may be applied to enhance strip adhesion. Open package. Remove card and card end tab. Grasp end of strip and lift strip straight upward from card. When using as a skin closure device, without presence of skin suture or staple, appose skin edges using fingers or forceps. Place strips across wound, ensuring tensionless application. Section larger wounds to distribute tension. Space strips approximately 1D8 in. (3mm) apart. Additional closures may be applied parallel to the wound and approximately in. (12mm) from closure ends. This may reduce shear force beneath the strip ends.

Warnings

The development of postoperative edema may cause skin shearing, skin blistering or loss of tape adhesion to occur at either end of the strip. Application of any surgical tape or adhesive skin closure may result in skin stripping upon removal. As with all adhesive products applied to the skin, a small percentage of individuals may experience hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation following removal. Occasional cases of mild acne and folliculitis have been observed in testing on healthy volunteers.
