What is it?

A sterile, liquid skin adhesive that holds wound edges together. The film will usually remain in place for 5 to 10 days, then naturally fall off your skin.

Check Wound Appearance

Some swelling, redness, and pain are common with all wounds and normally will go away as the wound heals. If swelling, redness, or pain increases or if the wound feels warm to the touch, contact Spine and Brain Group. If the wound edges reopen or separate, contact Spine and Brain Group.

Replace Bandages

  • If your wound is bandaged, keep the bandage dry.
  • Replace dressing daily until the adhesive film has fallen off or if the bandage should become wet.
  • When changing the dressing, do not place tape directly over the film, because removing the tape later may also remove the film.

Avoid topical medications

Do not apply liquid or ointment medication or any other product to your would while the film Is in place. These may loosen the film before your wound is healed.

Keep Wound Dry and Protected

  • Apply a clean, dry bandage over the wound if necessary to protect it.
  • You may occasionally and briefly wet your wound in the shower or bath. Do not soak or scrub your wound, do not swim, and avoid periods of heavy perspiration until the adhesive has naturally fallen off. After showering or bathing, gently blot your wound dry with a soft towel. If a protective dressing is being used, apply a fresh, dry bandage, keeping the tape off the film.
  • Protect your owund from injury until the skin has had sufficient time to heal.
  • Do not scratch, rub, or pick at the adhesive film. This may loosen the film before your wound is healed.
  • Protect the wound from prolonged exposure to sunlight or taming lamps while the film is in place.
