MEDIPATCH GEL Z® helps prevent the appearance of hypertrophic scars before the keloid scar stage, regardless of their origin: surgery, trauma, burns.
It reduces redness and hypertrophy of scars.
MEDIPATCH GEL Z® can be used as a preventive measure as soon as the wound is completely closed (around the 10th day), i.e. as soon as the first signs of scar hypertrophy appear. The early use of MEDIPATCH GEL Z® increases the chances of normalization of healing.
The various products in the range are particularly well suited to scars on the limbs and to scars that are not easily accessible to traditional pressotherapy.
MEDIPATCH GEL Z® is prescribed by a health professional. It is necessary that the patient remain under regular medical surveillance.
Instructions for use :
MEDIPATCH GEL Z® sheets can be cut with scissors to an appropriate size to cover the scar.
The physician is the only judge of the duration of daily application. Apply MEDIPATCH GEL Z® for 2 to 3 consecutive hours, gradually increasing to 7 or 8 hours over an 8-days period.
Generally it is applied after the morning wash, and after the habituation period, it is kept in place until the evening wash. It is important to apply MEDIPATCH GEL Z®t o healthy, dry skin so that it can adhere effectively and to avoid maceration.
The duration of the treatment must be determined by the physician who will decide whether to interrupt or modify it if necessary.
As with all occlusive dressings, MEDIPATCH GEL Z® should not be applied to oozing or infected wounds that require specific pre-treatment, or to injured skin.
