The skin is the largest organ of our body, and also the most prominent. It is a representation of us and is visible to everyone. Disturbances to your skin's integrity can have profound consequences, ranging from altered body image, decreased confidence, and physical symptoms such as itchiness, pain, tightness, and discomfort. Scars can regularly affect your daily life and quality of life, and despite the importance of the skin, treatments are limited, invasive, and often not successful. Based on numerous studies conducted in our laboratory, we used this knowledge to develop a non-invasive yet effective means to help our patients. Basic and translational science shows that scars are associated with increased inflammation that leads to the release of various growth factors and signals, stimulating and activating uncontrollable cell growth. Factors contributing to scar severity are gender, ethnicity, genetics, skin tension, and increased inflammation.
The team at SpiderTech developed an approach that reduces tightness, tension, and inflammation while improving blood flow. The result is a method that improves the look of scars over time: myScarTape. This unique tape with patent-pending technology has no chemicals or agents in it, meaning even the most sensitive skin will tolerate it. Once applied, it stays on for 1-2 weeks with no side effects, site infection, redness, or itchiness. myScarTape by SpiderTech provides a non-invasive, easy to apply, safe and practical approach to control and treat scars.
SpiderTech is the originator of the pre-cut kinesiology tape that uses technology engineered for movement, providing fast targeted pain relief and enhanced performance. Developed and tested by medical professionals, and battle proven by world class athletes, SpiderTech is the easiest tape to apply and it can be used by anyone. SpiderTech can be applied anywhere on the human skin, including the face as protection against airborne viruses.
SpiderTech products are made from high-grade 100% cotton with a 100% poly-acrylic adhesive, and they are engineered to mimic the thickness, weight and elasticity of human skin. This provides support and stability, without adversely affecting healthy ranges of motion. There is no latex in the product therefore making it hypoallergenic. The tape is also water resistant and breathable. The tape is designed to be worn on the skin even during strenuous exercise. The adhesive sticks well to the body and does not leave any residue when removed.
