How to use Mepilex Ag Silver Dressing with Safetac?

Only Mepilex Ag Dressing with Safetac combines the best of two superior technologies – the antimicrobial action of ionic silver with the benefits of Safetac soft silicone technology. Topical Silicone has been shown to have a positive impact on hypertrophic and keloid scars. It may take from 3 to 12 months or longer to improve an old scar, depending on the condition of the scar tissue. For prophylactic treatment, Mepiform should be used for 2 to 6 months, depending on the condition of the scar tissue.

Directions for use Mepilex Ag Absorbent Foam Dressing



Step:1
For best results choose a size that will allow Mepilex Ag to extend at least 2 cm beyond the wound margins. Cleanse the wound with normal saline or water according to standard clinical protocol. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.



Step:2
Remove the protective backing and apply with the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch. For lower limb applications position Mepilex Ag slightly off centre so more of the dressing rests below the wound than above.


Step:3
Secure Mepilex Ag in place with Mepitac or other fixation device. (Note: Mepilex Ag may be cut to size if required)

What to buy with Molnlycke Mepilex Ag Antimicrobial Foam Dressing?


How Safetac technology Work?

Safetac technology is a clinically proven adhesive that causes less pain at the time of removal. This molds to the skin’s uneven surface pores, while other adherents simply stick to the top on the skin’s surface, and this molding action is the secret of minimizing the pain, wound, and skin damage. It seals the edges of the wound and protects the skin around the wound.

Safetac technology makes dressing changes less painful because:


Safetac technology conforms to the skin’s pores, sealing the wound.


No skin cells are stripped when a dressing with Safetac technology is removed.


Safetac technology adhesive seals the wound margins, keeping the skin around the wound dry
