Wound Closure Strips

Wound closure strips are small porous surgical strips that are used to close or seal small wounds without the need of using sutures such as stitches and staples. They are applied to lacerated wounds where the strips pull one end of the skin towards the other and expedite the healing process. They are generally used for wounds near muscoskeletal joints that move a lot. These skin closure strips can also be used with tissue adhesive glue to secure the wound and speed the healing process. We at Shop Wound Care, bring to you a wide range of wound closure strips from top selling brands such as 3M, Derma Sciences, Covidien, etc.

Types of Wound Closure Strips

  • Reinforced Wound Closure Strips - They are porous and non-woven backed strips that are layered with a hypoallergenic adhesive. These skin closure strips are reinforced with polyester filaments to increase their strength. They are strong and provide stability to the wound.

  • Blend Tone Wound Closure Strips - They are sterile in nature and are beige colored to blend in with the skin. These blend tone skin closures are used on the face and the arms so that the wound is not visible directly 

  • Steri-Strips - Steri Strips are paper based wound closure strips and thus cannot work in wet conditions. Leukostrips are a replacement with the same characteristics, but made of synthetic materials that repel water.
