the tape needs to  be stretched tight...you gotta get the 'feel' of doing it. 
 The grafts heal quickly if they are help tightly in place.  The tape 
stretches some...play with a piece and stretch it in your hands....if it 
breaks you need to lighten up. Stretch it about 75% of its capability and you 
have it right.  The grafts need to be completely airtight also or they'll dry 
In the fall it takes about 3-4 weeks to heal...I sometimes unwrap to see if 
it is healing then if it is calloused I may rewrap a bit less tight  for a 
total time of about 6 weeks...no more.
