Description
A full contact flexible wound dressing which provides an optimal wound healing environment and abnormal scar prevention.
Action
Stratamed is a semi-occlusive, self-drying and transparent gel.
When used as directed Stratamed dries to form a protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof which hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and open wounds from chemical and microbial invasion.
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.
This environment leads to faster re-epithelialization and a reduced inflammatory response, which reduces recovery time post-procedure.
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 prevention and treatment: Stratamed softens and flattens raised scars and allows scars to normalize the collagen synthesis process, producing 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.
Stratamed was developed for the 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.
Indications/Uses
Stratamed may be applied to open wounds, burns and areas where skin integrity has been compromised.
Stratamed is used for: The protection and hydration of superficial wounds, burns and compromised skin.
The prevention and treatment of keloids, hypertrophic and excessive scars.
Stratamed may also be used in conjunction with invasive scar management options to improve overall results, including surgical excision and resuturing, intralesional steroid injections, laser treatments and pressure garments.
Stratamed is suitable for children and people with sensitive skin.
Stratamed may be used on infants, during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
Stratamed is intended for single patient use.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Stratamed gel is a unique formulation that requires substantially less product per application than typical moisturizing creams or barrier ointments.
Stratamed 5 g (0.17 oz) is enough to treat a 2-4 cm (1-2 inch) linear incision twice per day for over 90 days.
Stratamed 10 g (0.35 oz) is enough to treat a 5-8 cm (2-3 inch) linear incision twice per day for over 90 days.
Recommended duration of treatment: Stratamed is recommended for immediate treatment post procedure and should be continued until the skin has fully recovered.
For resurfacing and ablative procedures, continued use is recommended for a minimum treatment of 30 days (24 hours a day/7 days a week) or until no further improvement is seen.
For abnormal scar prevention, Stratamed is recommended for a minimum treatment of 60-90 days (24 hours a day/7 days a week). Larger scars may take longer.
Continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen.
Directions for use: On first use of 5 g, and 10 g tubes remove the cap, cut the nozzle tip of the tube and close with the cap after use.
Ensure that the affected skin or wound is clean.
Gently pat dry as much excess exudate or wound fluid from the area as possible prior to gel application.
For best results Stratamed should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day/7 days a week).
If Stratamed has been removed by washing, it should be reapplied.
When applied correctly to the affected 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.
On damaged or broken skin not requiring a secondary dressing: Apply a very thin layer of Stratamed to the affected area and allow the gel to dry. Stratamed should be applied once daily, or twice daily to exposed areas or as advised by the physician.
Once dry, Stratamed may be covered by sunscreen, cosmetics, pressure garments or casts.
On damaged skin or wounds requiring a secondary dressing: Apply a thin layer of Stratamed then cover with the secondary dressing.
Drying is not necessary.
Stratamed should be reapplied when changing the dressing or checking the wound progress, or as advised by the physician.
Special Precautions
For external use only.
Stratamed should not be placed in contact with the eyes.
Stratamed should not be applied over other skin treatments without the advice of the physician.
Stratamed may stain clothing if not completely dry. If staining occurs, dry cleaning should be able to remove it without damaging the fabric.
Should the patient's wound show signs of infection or fail to heal after 30 days of initial product application consult the physician.
If irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult the physician.
Not suitable for highly exudative wounds, tunneling wounds or 3rd degree burns.
