Stratamed is a flexible, full contact, non-resorbable, occlusive wound dressing for damaged or compromised skin. Stratamed dries to form a protective wound covering that is gas permeable and waterproof which hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and superficial wounds.
Stratamed can be applied to fresh incisions and excisions, open wounds and compromised skin surfaces including those from post laser treatments, chemical peels, dermal abrasion, 1st and 2nd degree burns and radiation therapy.
For open wounds and compromised skin:
Stratamed gel is bacteriostatic and inert. Stratamed dries to form a thin, flexible wound dressing which hydrates and protects affected areas. Stratamed helps create an optimal wound healing environment for superficial wounds and burns. Moist wound environments promote faster re-epithelialization*, relieve itching, burning and discomfort, reduce redness and swelling associated with insulted skin. Stratamed does not adhere strongly to the wound bed or the newly formed granulating tissue. Stratamed is a self-drying, non-sticky, transparent, gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer.
For abnormal scar management:
Stratamed softens and flattens raised scars and allows scars to normalize the collagen synthesis process, produc ing a normal mature scar. Stratamed can be used with or without a secondary protective dressing. Stratamed is ideal for exposed areas like the face and neck as well as joints and hairy areas without the need for shaving. Stratamed is used to relieve itching and discomfort and to reduce redness and discoloration associated with damaged skin and scars.
