Visibly reduces hypertrophic and keloid scars in 8 weeks
Trofolastin® - Scar Reduction Dressing
A scar appears when the epithelial tissue tears and is the natural result of the wound healing process. It is the "visible" part of a lesion in the dermis. The restoration of connective tissue is effected by the growth of young fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen). The space left by the wound is then "covered" with fibrillar tissue. Hence, the scar has a different texture to the skin. Trofolastin® visibly reduces hypertrophic and keloid scars in 8 weeks.
Trofolastin Scar Reduction Dressing is intended for the reduction of recent or old hypertrophic or keloid scars and prevention of the formation of hypertrophic or keloid scars.
Trofolastin® patches are uniques thanks to their great adherence to the skin, adaptability to the different parts of the body as well as having a specialist range with different solutions and shapes, that adapt to different types of scars and surgeries.
They can be trimmed to fit the size of the scar and are waterproof.
Protects scars from sunlight and provides an ultraviolet (UV) protection factor of UPF50+.
The patch can remain on the skin continuously for up to seven days, without having to remove it every day.
To optimize its effectiveness, it is necessary to follow the advice on its use and application (see the leaflet).
First, clean the area very well then ensure it is dry.
Apply the dressing over the scar (following the line of the scar), taking care not to generate folds or poorly adhered areas (especially in the corners).
"Trofolastin Scar Reduction Dressing is a Polyurethane dressing consisting of two layers; the outer surface is a microporous polyurethane membrane and the skin contact layer is an acrylic adhesive film to facilitate skin adhesion.
Trofolastin Scar Reduction Dressing does not contain an active ingredient and acts via a physical mechanism, in which the dressing increases pressure over the scar and modifies the humidity under the dressing, thus leading to a correct arrangement of the collagen fibres."
