Smooth-On Derma-Tac™ Silicone Adhesive Remover is a highly effective releasing agent that completely loosens the bond of the adhesive between the skin and prosthetic piece so that it can be gently lifted and removed from the skin. It allows you to methodically lift and remove the appliance as you work the remover under and through it with a brush, cotton swab or cotton ball.
To use the remover effectively make sure you have enough of the product on hand so you don't run out of it in the middle of the removal process. Start at an edge of the prosthetic and apply the remover to the side of the edge, gently working and lifting the edge at the same time to loosen the bond. Once the corner has lifted soak more of the remover directly under the piece and onto the skin, and begin lifting more of the piece as the adhesive becomes saturated and loosened with the remover. Work the appliance by lifting it away from the skin, taking particular care around the eyes and mouth area.
Go slowly and use patience, taking your time, so that you don't irritate the skin in the removal process. Once the piece is completely removed, wipe any remaining adhesive residue on the face with more Pro Adhesive remover. You can also clean any adhesive residue from the appliance using this remover. Once the appliance and traces of the adhesive residue is removed the skin should be cleaned with a cleanser, such as Telesis Makeup Remover, MM-1255. We recommend moisturizing the skin immediately after with Graftobian Derma Care Facial Recovery Balm, PPS-0031, to pH balance, soother and restore skin texture.
