More Information

  • How to Apply:
    - It is a great way to close and protect most minor wounds
    - For optimum results and to lessen scarring, wound edges should be straight and lie together naturally
    - Clean and dry the skin thoroughly
    - Stabilize the wound edges from top to bottom and be sure the edges are matched correctly
    - Ensure that the wound edges are flat, meet perfectly and are not rolled under
    - Apply a series of small dots of SkinStitch glue sparingly at wound edges, but not in the wound
    - The dots allow for better control of the glue application
    - While holding the edges together, use the applicator to pull the adhesive across to the other side of the wound
    - Thus, you are essentially creating a bridge across the wound
    - Hold for 30 seconds while the glue hardens
    - Apply a second thin layer
    - Two or three thin layers are better than one thick layer, as thick applications do not enhance bonding and tend to crack and loosen prematurely
    - No further dressing is required
  • After Care Instructions:
    - Keep the treated area clean and dry
    - Do not soak or go swimming
    - Shower briefly, pat the area dry, do not rub
    - Do not pick at the liquid bandage
    - Let the SkinStitch fall off on its own (This will generally occur at the 7 to 10 day mark)
    - If your doctor tells you to change a Steri Strip bandage avoid putting the sticky part of bandage directly over the SkinStitch
    - Infection or pulling apart of the edges require immediate consultation
    - If you notice warmth or redness increasing, contact your physician
    - Do not apply an antibiotic ointment
    - This actually causes the molecules of the glues bond to breakdown faster
    - For 12 months, be meticulous about putting sunscreen on the treated area to avoid pigment changes in the new skin
    - Avoid sun bathing or tanning lights
