Stratamed Scar Therapy
- Made in Switzerland
Stratamed is an advanced, transparent, and semi-occlusive film-forming wound dressing used after surgery, full field procedures (i.e. ablative laser) or on deeper wounds. Stratamed has been developed with a special consistency to ensure that it remains in stronger contact with the wound bed or damaged surface.
Stratamed allows epidermal cells able to move to the surface of the dermis through wound exudate which collects at the wound dressing interface. This environment prevents secondary tissue damage resulting from dehydration. It environment promotes enzymatic autolytic debridement. Wound exudate, which carries a number of growth factors essential to the healing of wounds, is kept protected in the wound-dressing interface. Stratamed emulates the epidermal barrier and helps enhance the healing of wounds. Stratamed prevents water loss while maintaining the oxygen transfer rate. The wound is kept in an optimal environment for healing.
Flexible, full contact:
Stratamed dries to form a thin and flexible protective film which remains in constant contact with the damaged skin.
Stratamed reduces downtime by creating an optimal environment for faster wound healing.
Stratamed protects the compromised skin from microbial invasion and does not promote bacterial growth.
Stratamed provides symptomatic relief from itching, burning, and discomfort, as well as reduces redness and swelling.
Stratamed is inert, has no measurable pH value, contains no alcohol, parabens or fragrances. This makes it suitable for children and people with sensitive skin.
- Ensure that the affected skin or superficial wound is clean.
- Gently pat dry as much excess exudate or wound fluid from the area as possible prior to the gel application.
- A: Apply a very thin layer of Stratamed directly to the affected area.
B: Cover with a secondary dressing. Apply a thin layer of Stratamed, then cover with a secondary dressing. Drying is not necessary.
- Allow the gel to dry When applied correctly, Stratamed should be dry in 5–6 minutes. If it takes longer to dry, you have probably applied too much. Gently remove any excess gel with a tissue or paper towel and allow the drying process to continue.
- Once dry, Stratamed can be covered with clothes, sunscreen or cosmetics.
Stratamed 5 g is enough to treat a 2-4 cm linear incision twice per day for over 90 days.
Stratamed 10 g is enough to treat a 5-8 cm linear incision twice per day for over 90 days.
