If you are like many other patients who have had to undergo a biopsie, or minor surgery using incisions, and are concerned about scarring, you are not alone. If you are wanting to prevent scarring, but you have issues with adhesive allergies, or experience skin stripping from frequent bandaid removal, we here at Orlando Dermatology can help you. With Stratemed and Stratacel, you can ensure optimal healing and health of your skin throughout the wound healing process.
What is Stratamed?
Stratamed s an advanced clinical grade wound dressing. It is a specialized liquid dressing that dries thin, flexible, and quick. It serves as a protective layer of permeable gas that locks in necessary moisture, while also being waterproof. It is a highly effective form of wound protection that protects the wound from harmful debris and outside invaders, and is safe for all skin types. It’s also a great option for children either by itself, or under a secondary dressing for a decreased chance of scarring.
How Does it Work?
Stratamed should be applied once a or twice a day, and maintain contact for 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. Epidermal cells on the surface of skin are able to navigate to the surface to collect the wound dressing interface. This hydatid seal of protection prevents your wound from being subjected to dehydration. Meanwhile, the growth-promoting wound exudate provides your wound with various essential growth factors for healing and protection. Stratamed is so effective because it mimics the skin barrier and works to promote a necessary environment for optimal healing.
What is Stratacel?
This is another form of advanced flexible wound dressing designed to support healing and repair following skin resurfacing procedures such as dermal abrasion and laser resurfacing. It is designed to provide support and healing to sensitive areas of the skin. It contains no alcohols, parabens, or fragrances. It is also odorless and serves as an effective remedy for people with sensitive skin.
How Does it Work?
Stratacel should be administered as advised. Once applied, it dries as a thin layer. The specialized wound formulation works to allow the exchange of gasses including oxygen and water vapor to offer an essential wound environment for maximum healing. Its flexibility and gel application makes it a suitable solution for many treatment areas of the body.
If you have wounds resulting from a biopsie, or surgery that required incisions, you could benefit from Stratamed and Stratacel. This is an effective treatment for all skin types and for patients at any age. Stratamed and Stratacel wound dressing can help support your skin for optimal healing.
