Hydrocolloid dressing promotes healing of skin lacerations

Hydrocolloid dressing is a kind of wound healing that promotes wound healing and creates a warm and moist healing environment for wounds. In skin lacerations, hydrocolloid dressings can promote wound healing, and are suitable for stage I mild skin lacerations.

A skin laceration, also known as a skin laceration, is a type of open soft tissue injury. Refers to damage to the epidermis or soft tissue caused by blunt object impact or impact. The edges of its wounds are uneven. Mostly occurs in the collision between the body and hard objects (including people and people). It is easy to see in the eyebrow arch, jaw, scalp, face, etc.

The use of hydrocolloid dressings in minor skin lacerations can achieve the following effects:

(1) Tear and pull without sticky gel
The hydrocolloid dressing and the wound surface and sticky material residues avoid the inconvenient pain caused by the need to wash the material residues, and prevent the bacterial invasion and infection caused by repeated washing of the wound.

(2) Help the wound stop bleeding
When the wound bleeds and produces exudate, the hydrocolloid dressing can absorb the exudate. When it is saturated, the hydrocolloid dressing will form a milky white gel, prompting the patient to change it in time.

(3) Flat and smooth, suitable for wound surface
In the care of skin lacerations, the edge of the dressing needs to be flat, and there should be no defects such as warping, otherwise bacteria can easily invade through the gap, which is not friendly to the healing and recovery of the wound.

(4) Speed ​​up wound healing
Hydrocolloid dressing can create a safe and moist wound healing environment for the wound surface. It has the water absorption of water-soluble polymers. It helps to accelerate wound healing and accelerate wound surface epithelialization, granulation formation, cellulose through CMC (carboxymethyl cellulose) particles and necrosis degradation, inhibiting the proliferation of bacteria.

(5) Reduce the number of dressing changes
In the absence of exudate, the hydrocolloid dressing can be used for up to 7 days, although the length of time may vary according to the patient's wound condition. The number of replacements of hydrocolloid dressings can be determined according to the wound exudate and the recovery effect. Practice has proved that the use of hydrocolloid dressings can effectively reduce the number of dressing changes.

(6) Beautiful
For beauty-loving women, traditional dressings are unsightly after skin lacerations, which makes many people choose to close their doors to recuperate. The hydrocolloid dressing is called artificial skin, the color is the same as the skin, and it fits the skin perfectly. It is the first choice for beauty lovers.

(7) Reduce the formation of scars and protect the skin
The moist environment created by the hydrocolloid dressing can prevent the wound from scabbing and reduce the formation of scars. Hydrocolloid dressings are comfortable and soft to the touch. It can help reduce the pain and discomfort caused by skin friction and protect the skin.
