How does Dermatix® Wound Care help to accelerate wound healing?

It keeps the wound moist by providing a dynamic barrier over the wound. A moist environment has been proven to facilitate the healing process of the wound by preventing dehydration and enhancing angiogenesis and collagen synthesis together with increased breakdown of dead tissue and fibrin.17, 18, 19

How does Dermatix® Wound Care help to prevent infection?

It forms a dynamic barrier on top of the wound, preventing contamination and subsequently infection.17

How does Dermatix® Wound Care provide immediate pain relief?

It provides cooling effect which alleviates pain. Hydrogels cover the sensitive underlying tissue without adherence, decreasing pain through cooling effects.17

What are the main benefits of Dermatix® Wound Care?

  • Promotes healing, leading to a faster onset of the wound closure17 either in chronic20 and acute superficial wounds by ensuring an optimal hydration for wound healing processes. Wounds heal better when kept moist as a moist wound environment promotes granulation, autolytic processes, angiogenesis, and more rapid migration of epidermal cells across the wound base exudate.
  • Limits the risk of infection.17
  • Relieves pain sensation from application due to its cooling effects (soothing effect).17
  • Non-traumatic as it does not need to be peeled off like a plaster/adhesive, therefore not disrupting the neo-granulation tissue formed and attenuating discomfort to the patient.

  • Decreased risk of infection17
