Removing tape

  • If cared for properly, your Kinesio Tex Tape application can be worn for a minimum of 2-3 days
  • Begin slowly removing the tape in the direction of hair growth
  • Use one hand to remove the tape and the other hand to oppress against the skin
  • Gently rubbing the skin after the application is removed can reduce sensitivity
