Stratamed – the breakthrough treatment for faster wound healing and abnormal scar management.

Fast wound healing is key to minimizing abnormal scar formation.1

“The main focus for clinicians is to achieve rapid epithelialization as a first measure of wound care to manage abnormal scar formation. This is particularly important for wounds subjected to tension due to motion, body location or loss of tissue.”1

Silicone’s long-standing efficacy for wound healing and scar management2–4 has now taken a leap forward with the development of Stratamed – specifically developed for use on non-epithelialized skin.

With Stratamed, physicians and patients are now able to begin their silicone therapy earlier than ever before, which significantly reduces the likelihood and severity of abnormal scarring.5

Stratamed dries to form a thin, flexible, protective sheet that is gas permeable and waterproof which hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and open wounds from chemical and microbial invasion.

Stratamed speeds up the healing process resulting in reduced downtime.5

Stratamed can also be used in conjunction with other invasive scar management options to improve overall results, including surgical excision and resuturing, intralesional steroid injections and pressure garments.

Stratamed can be used immediately after surgical procedures, trauma, skin resurfacing, burns*, chronic wounds etc.

 

Stratamed helps to create an optimal moist wound healing environment for the healing process of the wound5-7, which leads to:

 

Stratamed is semi-occlusive and hydrophobic and does not adhere strongly to the newly formed granulating tissue5-7, which leads to:

 

Stratamed consists of inert polymers with no measurable pH value, which form a flexible protective sheet, that:

 

Stratamed dries to form a full contact flexible wound dressing:

 

Stratamed is a simple addition to existing wound care protocols with no changes required. It can be used with or without secondary protective dressing.

 

Stratamed is bacteriostatic and inert, supplied in “sterile until open” format:

 

Stratamed is a high molecular weight polymer – not absorbed through the skin or through the gastro­intestinal tract:
