Stratamed Advanced Film-Forming Wound Dressing 20 Gram

Stratamed is a full-contact flexible wound dressing which provides an optimal wound healing environment and abnormal scar management.

What are the advantages of using Stratamed gel instead of physical wound dressings? There are delicate areas where it is very difficult or impossible to use physical dressings: Areas with high mobility, areas with high friction, wet skin (mucosa), hindering adherence. Areas with higher hygienic requirements (like perineum). Physical dressings (including silicone dressings) do not create a full contact surface as air bubbles form underneath. Delicate areas like the eyes, nostrils and lip contours remain exposed and subjected to irritation due to the adhesive tape.

Stratamed is an advanced film forming wound dressing in the form of a self-drying silicone gel.

  • Stratamed is flexible, adaptable, and creates a full contact surface
  • Stratamed is completely biocompatible, inert and is suitable for people with sensitive skin
  • Stratamed is odorless

NOT indicated for the use on active acne. The usage of Stratamed does not require changes in any existing wound care protocol. It is a simple addition to your usual process – but with great effects.

First ensure that the affected skin or wound is clean. Gently pat dry as much excess exudate or wound fluid from the wound as possible prior to the application of Stratamed. For best results Stratamed should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day/7 days a week). When applied correctly to exposed areas, Stratamed should be dry in 5–6 minutes. If it takes longer to dry you have probably applied too much. Gently remove the excess with a clean tissue or gauze and allow the drying process to continue.

FAQ’s

What is Stratamed?
Stratamed is a full-contact flexible wound dressing which provides an optimal wound healing environment and abnormal scar management.

What is Stratamed made of?
Stratamed is a self-drying, non-sticky, transparent, gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer.

How does Stratamed work?
Faster re-epithelialization of the wound bed. Stratamed’s protective and hydrophobic silicone film has a semi-occlusive effect and therefore improves the tissue hydration of the injured skin. It allows a faster migration of keratinocytes across the wound bed and supports a more rapid re-epithelialization and effective healing. The faster re-epithelialization dramatically decreases the incidence of abnormal scarring and leads to a fast recovery.

Reduction of inflammatory response
Stratamed forms a flexible, protective sheet that is gas permeable but semi-occlusive, which weakly bonds to the injured skin and protects it from chemical and microbial invasion, but it does not penetrate the epidermis or dermis. The polymers Stratamed contains have no measurable pH value, and therefore do not affect the protective acid mantle of the skin and do not react with the newly forming epithelial tissues. This leads to a reduction in the inflammatory response (redness/discoloration, burning sensation, itching, discomfort, pain, etc.), and effective healing of the wound and therefore enhances therapeutic results.

Abnormal scar management
After the re-epithelialization of a wound, the stratum corneum (dead skin layer) is immature and still allows abnormally high levels of Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). Dehydration is signaled to keratinocytes, which then start to produce cytokines, which in epidermal-dermal signaling activate dermal fibroblasts to synthesize and release collagen. Excessive collagen production leads to abnormal scarring. At this wound healing stage, the Stratamed layer restores the barrier function of the stratum corneum, reduces TEWL and stops dehydration of the skin. Reduction of TEWL turns off the stimulation of keratinocytes and the production of cytokines and thus normalizes the level of collagen production, resulting in a normal mature scar.

On what types of wounds is Stratamed effective?
Stratamed was developed for use on all types of superficial wounds, burns, skin tears and abrasions including those resulting from:

  • General and cosmetic surgery
  • Trauma
  • Burns
  • Radiation therapy
  • Bites
  • Grazes
  • Laser therapy, including tattoo removal
  • Chemical peels
  • Dermal abrasion
  • Cryotherapy
  • Acne and other diseases of the skin

Does Stratamed have any odor associated with it?
No. Stratamed is odorless.

Is Stratamed an effective acne treatment?
No. Stratamed is not indicated for the use on active acne.

Are there any known allergies to Stratamed?
No. There are no known allergies to Stratamed, either remote/distant or on site. Stratamed is an inert biocompatible non-transdermal polymer. We have completed irritation, sensitivity and acute toxicity testing on Stratamed with no noted reactions.

Is Stratamed effective on all skin types?
Yes. Stratamed is effective on all types of skin, no matter what color or shade.

Will Stratamed damage my hair?
Stratamed will not damage your hair. It has no effect on your hair.

Does Stratamed have an expiry date? I can not find this information on my tube.
Stratamed has an expiry date of five years after manufacturing. This date is imprinted on every box (side flap) and tube (end seal) in the format year-month (e.g. EXP 2018-09 or 13-09).

Is there any sun protection in Stratamed?
