What is moist wound healing?
How can moist wound healing help to heal wounds faster and beautifully?
- enable most favourable conditions for wound closure (epithelisation), the formation of new tissue and the immune system
- let the healing process remain undisturbed and ensure faster healing
- prevent scab formation to optimize cell migration and reduce the likelihood of scarring
Moist wound therapy helps to create and maintain optimal conditions for wound healing and cell growth. The wound exudate acts as a transport medium for many bioactive molecules that ensure new tissue to form co-ordinately. Cells will grow, divide and migrate at an increased rate to optimize the wound healing process.
2. Faster healing
Clinical studies prove that the wound healing process is faster in a moist wound environment*.* Wigger-Alberti W et al., Journal of Wound Care 2009; 18(5):208-14
As optimum wound conditions are created, the pace of cell growth and the formation of new tissue is increased. This speeds up wound healing by up to 50%!
3. Prevention of scarring and assurance beautiful healingIn a moist environment, scabs are prevented, which inhibit the formation of new tissue. If wounds heal without scabs and the wound healing process remains undisturbed, the likelihood of scarring is decreased and results in improved cosmetic results.
What is it?
How does it help?
Clinical studies demonstrate an up to 50% faster wound healing process . By providing optimal moist wound healing conditions the Elastoplast polyurethane technology improves the natural wound healing process*: cell renewal and movement is supported and thus facilitates the formation of new tissue. Further, the polyurethane technology cushions the wound, is thin and flexible, and can be used for wounds in almost any area of the body.
