What is DERMABOND ADVANCEDô and why do doctors trust it?
DERMABOND ADVANCEDô is a liquid bonding agent that holds many cuts,
wounds, and incisions together as effectively as stitches do. It's the
strong, flexible, needle-free wound closure choice that puts you back
into your day-to-day life.
Exceptional wound protection.
Not only does DERMABOND ADVANCEDô provide a strong, fast hold, it's a
layer of protection from the bacteria that may lead to infection.
Plus, DERMABOND ADVANCEDô is waterproof, so you can shower
immediately after surgery. You'll know your doctor is using the best
when you see the skin adhesive with the purple tint.
The comfort you want.
Many people like DERMABOND ADVANCEDô because it comes off by itself
as the wound heals, and there's no pain or discomfort from bandages and
dressings, or the removal of stitches or staples.
Easy on your skin.
Since there are no stitches, there are none of the discolorations or
"track marks" that stitches can leave around wounds and incisions.
DERMABOND ADVANCEDô is especially desirable for the sensitive skin on
your face. That's why so many surgeons prefer to use DERMABOND
How DERMABOND ADVANCEDô works to protect you
The adhesive material in DERMABOND ADVANCEDô forms a strong microbial barrier to protect wounds while they heal.
DERMABOND ADVANCEDô wears off naturally during the healing process,
which is usually completed within 7 to 10 days. If your doctor uses
absorbable sutures and DERMABOND ADVANCEDô, you will not need an
appointment to remove stitches. However, your doctor may want to check
on your progress.
Remember: only your doctor or other trained clinical professional can apply DERMABOND ADVANCEDô.
How It's Applied
After cleaning your wound, your doctor or trained healthcare
professional will apply DERMABOND ADVANCEDô in one thin layer with a
light brushing stroke while holding the edges of the wound together.
DERMABOND ADVANCEDô produces a strong, flexible bond in 95 seconds.
