A TRANSPARENT sticking plaster which can erase unsightly scars will today be made available to the public for the first time.

The adhesive gel sheet causes red, raised scars to flatten and fade over two to four months. Cica-Care, made by the London-based pharmaceutical company Smith & Nephew, is used in hospitals to treat scarring caused by burns, injuries or surgery. From today, it will also be sold over the counter at selected Boots stores.
