ADHESIVE PATCHES INSTRUCTION GUIDE
1. CLEAN SKIN: Clean skin with soap and water. Using soap containing lotion (moisturizing soap) will affect adhesion. Small amounts of body hair will not affect adhesion. Areas with large amounts of body hair should be clipped close to the skin or shaved for best results.
2. PLACE PATCH: Remove 1 section of the patch and place on skin. Carefully remove the remaining sections 1 at a time until patch is on. Don't touch the adhesive when applying. Do not lift the patch away from the skin once applied.
3. ACTIVATE ADHESIVE: The patch is heat activated. Rubbing the patch will activate its bonding agent, which allows it to bond with the skin. After applying the patch, rub it from the center outwards. Do not rub from the ends toward the center, or you may cause the ends to peel away from the skin. The adhesive needs 1 hour to bond to the skin. Apply the patch at least one hour before exercising, swimming or bathing.
4. REMOVE PATCH: To remove patch, peel off SLOWLY in the direction of hair growth, which is usually away from the center of the body on the trunk, and in the downward direction on the arms or legs. A patch that is strongly adhered can be loosened by soaking in a removal aiding solution. You can use skin tac remover or mix a 1:1 rubbing alcohol/vegetable oil or baby oil solution. Apply solution to patch and wait 5 minutes before attempting removal. You can continue to soak the patch until it can be comfortably removed. Most rashes occur from removing patch without a removal aid.
5. REUSING: Some customers choose to reuse the patch. It was made to be disposable, but if you would like to reuse, here are instructions to do so. To reuse the patch, hand wash with dish soap and lay flat to dry. Once patch is completely dry, apply a heavy layer of skin tack adhesive to the skin and let it dry, 1-2 minutes. Place patch over adhesive tack. Apply another layer of tack on top of the patch. Make sure the tack completely saturates the patch. Allow it to fully dry before placing clothes over it to prevent the patch from adhering to clothes, this can take 5-10 minutes. Best results are achieved by using liquid skin adhesive as opposed to skin tack adhesive pads.
PATCH WON’T STICK: Don't touch the adhesive when applying. Make sure patch is applied to clean skin with no lotion. Using soap containing lotion (moisturizing soap) will affect adhesion. Make sure patch gets warm enough (body temperature) to activate the adhesive. Adhesive takes ~1 hour to bond to skin. Once bonded it is rated to last 25 days.
PAINFUL REMOVAL: Use skin tac remover or mix a 1:1 rubbing alcohol/vegetable oil or baby oil solution. Apply solution to patch and wait 5 minutes before attempting removal. You can continue to soak the patch until it can be comfortably removed. Most rashes occur from removing patch without a removal aid.
SKIN UNDER PATCH IS ITCHING: Rinse patch with water. Most irritation occurs from sweat irritating the skin under the patch. If irritation does not subside after 30 minutes, remove the patch with a removal aid and clean area with rubbing alcohol. The adhesive is formulated for extended wear on skin and is free from all major allergens.
