Frequently Asked Questions

  • The Silcskin Décolleté, Facial & Collette Pads are re-usable 100% medical grade silicon pads designed to prevent and repair the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the décolleté & facial area. The Pads are not transdermal and do not therefore impart any silicone into the skin.

  • The pads are maufactured from 100% medical grade silicone.  They are manufactured according to exacting specifications and have been thoroughly tested to ensure that there are no side effects that may occur from the use of the pads.  There are cheap copies of the Silcskin brand of pads in the marketplace which raise concern as they can contain amongst other things, latex, urethanes, fillers, peroxides & glues which can have an adverse reaction to the skin causing irritations and allergic reactions.  They also tend to have a reduced life. 

  • This is dependent upon the frequency of use. The Pads will last between 30-60 days. If worn every night for 7-8 hours they will last for 30 days before needing to be replaced.  If your normal sleep patterns are shorter, they may last longer.  The main reason for replacing the pad is the loss of its adhesive power over time, though the pad retains its supportive properties.  Most women replace their moisturiser every 4-6 weeks.  The same broad time period applies with the Décolleté & Facial Pads.

  • Simply wash the pads with warm (NON MOISTURISING) soapy water and leave it to dry naturally.  It is VERY important to use a soap that does not contain moisturisers.  We recommend Sunlight laundry soap which is also known as Velvet in some States.  It is easily obtainable, very economical and perfect for washing your pads – no additional monies are required for expensive cleansers!

  • When not using, place the Pads face down on the hard clear plastic sheet that comes with the pad.  When drying the facial pads, simply leave them sticky side up in the atmosphere until they are dry.

  • The pad must be applied to clean dry skin. No moisturisers, oils, sunscreens etc should be applied prior to using the pad as this can compromise the integrity of the silicone and reduce the longevity of the Pad.

  • The pads are typically worn at bedtime as you are physically preventing the skin from creasing however can be worn at any time of the day.  Note if you are prone to night sweats, the pads cannot be worn as they will be unable to adhere to the skin.  You would instead wear them during the day.
