What is a CicaLux Scar Healing Kit?
CicaLux Scar Healing Kit is an award winning device offering combination therapy including 100% medical grade silicone, infrared energy and tension relief tape, that you can use in your own home.
CicaLux is designed to prevent or improve hyper-pigmented, raised and/or keloid scars resulting from incisional surgeries, such as a c-section delivery, hysterectomies, tummy tucks, breast augmentation.
How does CicaLux work?
CicaLux works in a number of ways;
Compression – This helps to flatten and prevent the thickening of scar tissue. CicaLux’s silicone sheet is smooth and gentle on the skin, and does not pull or tug on the underlying scar tissue.
Hydration – The silicone sheet helps to prevent moisture loss, which is beneficial to the healing process. Silicone sheets have been shown to improve itchiness of the scar site and pigmentation changes.
It is breathable! – The CicaLux silicone sheet and tape allow the skin to breathe – reducing the likelihood that the skin will soften and break down due to prolonged exposure to moisture. The CicaLux tape also provides for hygiene and security as it is single-use, replaced daily.
Its reusable! The CicaLux Silicone sheet is reusable and durable. It is easy to handle, non-stick and is easy to clean with soap and water. The CicaLux stone is natural and hand-crafted making it durable and reusable.
Heat Therapy – The CicaLux stone provides infrared (IR) heat therapy sessions, known to help blood flow, improve healing and provide soothing pain relief. In fact IR therapy has been used for centuries for a variety therapies, including wound therapy and providing pain relief for new mums with c-section scars. The Cicalux stone can be removed at anytime and used separately to aid finger massaging of the scar tissue.
Tension relief – The CicaLux tape relieves the stress on the scar while compressing and securing the silicone sheet for optimised performance. Keeping the skin together on each side of incision helps to prevent widening or voids where the scar tissue can fill and increase the risk of scaring. The CicaLux tape adheres only to the healthier skin surrounding the scar line – by doing this it prevents any direct pulling or tugging of the scar tissue itself.

I find the scar of my patient positively beautiful compared to before, after only a few weeks of use. It is less pigmented and finer! I encourage her to continue to use CicaLux diligently
I evaluated CicaLux with 11 of my c-section patients, including 8 that I operated myself & I recommend it
Before starting CicaLux, I was extremely skeptical but curious about the possibilities to improve my scar which was already 6 years old. After all these years, it was still quite red and still very visible especially the right side (without being hypertrophied). After nearly 60 days of treatment, almost continuously, I find it prettier, much thinner and almost invisible.
My caesarean section was in May 2018 and I started using CicaLux in January 2019. I find it easy to use and I immediately saw progress in a few weeks. My scar became smoother, less red and more uniform. I would recommend it to my patients!
I have been using CicaLux for only 3 weeks on my one year old breast surgery scar. I am already noticing positive improvements, especially in the color of my scarring, which appears less pink and more white.
I continue to use CicaLux all day and night and I am delighted the scar has significantly improved in terms of width and appearance. The itchiness of the scar has also diminished. I am very satisfied and I intend to recommend it to the doctors
