Advanced Film Forming Wound Dressing
Use on open wounds
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 dries to form a thin, flexible, protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof. It hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and open wounds from chemical and microbial invasion.
Stratamed improves the tissues hydration through its semi-occlusive effect. It does not adhere strongly to the newly formed granulating tissue. It forms a flexible, protective, semi-occlusive sheet. The layer weakly bonds to the injured skin and protects it from chemical and microbial invasions. Stratamed does not affect the skins natural acid mantle and does not react with newly forming epithelial tissue.
Stratamed helps prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) which can in the prevention of abnormal scaring.
Enables effective wound healing, enhances therapeutic results and leads to the best possible scar outcome.
Stratmed is indicated for immediate application after; full field laser procedures, chemical peels (full thickness) deep micro needling, tattoo removal, scar revision, cosmetic face surgery, (blepharoplasty lifts, rhinoplasty), cosmetic body surgery, (breast augmentation/ reduction, lifts, abdominoplasty), platelet rich plasma therapy, injections, threading sites, medical tattooing, dermabrasion.

How to use
Step 1: Prepare your 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
Step 2: Apply Stratamed
Apply a very thin layer of Stratamed directly to the affected area.
Step 3 A without secondary dressing: 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.
Step 3 B: Cover with secondary dressing
Apply a thin layer of Stratamed, then cover with a secondary dressing. Drying is not necessary. Stratamed should be reapplied when changing the dressing, when checking the wound progress, or as advised by your doctor.
Step 4: You are ready to go!
Once dry, Stratamed can be covered with clothes, sunscreen or cosmetics.
Remove from skin
Excess Stratamed on your hands can be easily removed by washing them with liquid soap and warm water. Repeat if necessary.
