FAQ

SCAR TAPES

How do I apply Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape?

Ensure skin is dry and free from oils, locations and hair. Do not touch adhesive with your fingers. Gently rub the tape after applying to activate the adhesive. You can shower/bathe as usual. Carefully dab off any remaining dampness from tape using a towel.

Test a small piece of tape on your skin prior to usage, if irritation or itching occurs, remove the tape immediately. Do not expose tape to any kind of water or moisture until the product has been applied for 30 minutes.

How do I cut Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape into smaller strips?

Please only use the dispenser to cut the strip at the 10in perforated end. DO NOT use the dispenser to cut the tape to a smaller size. If you would like to cut the strip of tape smaller than 10in, please carefully use a scissor to cut the strip to your size of choice. 

After cutting the tape to your desired length, be sure to cut the edges of the tape so that all of the corners of the strip are “rounded” edges.

How do I apply Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape with the Scar Cream or Roller Serum?

All of Motivo Scar Care products provide their own individual benefits for helping to heal your scars. There is an added benefit in using them in combination with each other, this can be especially beneficial depending on where you're at in your scar healing journey.. the sooner the better.

When using our Scar Cream or Roller Serum in combination with our Scar Tape, please apply either the Scar Cream or Roller Serum to the skin first (Be sure to follow the instructions for application on these products as well) After the Scar Cream or Roller Serum have been applied, please allow 5-10 minutes for the solution to dry completely on your skin. Once dried, you can then apply our Scar Tape as instructed. 

Instructions for applying Motivo Scar Care - Scar Tape can be found on this page above or on the back of the packaging.

When can I start using Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape?

Begin using Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape as soon as the wound has fully closed (e.g. skin is healed and there is no oozing, crusting or irritation in the area).

When should Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape be replaced?

Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape can stay on for 3-5 days. If Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape is sticking and adherent to the skin, do not change it. If it becomes loose, replace it with a new piece and apply it according to our suggested guidelines.

After removing Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape please allow a 12-24 hour break before reapplying. Certain applications or environments may require more frequent changes of Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape due to high mobility, cleansing routine, hair growth, humidity or oil level on the skin.

The edges of my Motivo Scar Care™ - Scar Tape are no longer sticking to my skin?

This can happen for a variety of reasons, and is easy to fix! If the adhesive around the edges of your tape starts to wear off, the corners may lift up a bit. When this happens, simply just cut off the lifted edges and continue to wear as normal. As long as the actual scarred area of the skin is properly covered it is fine.
