Nexcare™ HCM-5 Hydrocolloid Bandage Regular
- Clinical studies prove that the wound healing process is 1.5 times faster than dry wounds in a moist wound environment
- Scar prevention: In a moist environment, scabs are prevented, which inhibit the formation of new tissue. If wounds heal without scabs and the wound healing process remains
- Pain reduction: Nerves in the skin are bathed in the wound fluid which helps reduce pain
Covering up a wound with a moist wound healing dressing provides an optimal wound climate which will allow the wound to be bathed in wound fluid so that it does not dry out and form a scab. The wound fluid provides nutrients and growth factors to assist with healing, and has white blood cells present to help prevent infection.
