What is a scar?
A scar is a persistent deviation of the skin which is arise after healing of a wound. In superficial damage to the skin, there will occur no scars, but also when the dermis is damaged, there will be a visible scar.
The surgeon left a neat bonding in which no voltage than the skin can heal nicely. By stress or too much movement skin may get enough rest so that the scar will be visible. Below the skin surface scar tissue may occur in the connective tissue, also known as fibrosis of the tissue.

Tape explanation for scar treatment
Since the tape is not sterile may only be a fresh scar taped if the wound is closed and covered with skin. In order to promote wound healing, at this stage it is possible to apply strips of tape next to the wound. The wound will therefore visibly faster close.
General rules in order to keep an eye for the treatment of a scar:
• Strips of 1 to 1.5 cm wide, cut in the longitudinal direction of the roll of tape
• The older and deeper into the scar, the more strain it is necessary to use (up to 85%)
• In recent scars, we recommend using low stretch
• Do not strain on the anchors and from the middle to put strain on the tape (ligament technique)
