Mepiform Scar Dressing Information
Mepiform is a thin, discreet and flexible dressing covered with a soft silicone Safetac layer, designed to aid the body's healing of wounds and scars, old and new.
Safetac is a soft silicone adhesive technology. Mepiform dressings adhere gently to the skin and protect the scar tissue. The Safetac technology allows the dressing to be changed without causing pain. It can be lifted from the skin without losing its adhesive properties, allowing for reapplication if inspection is needed.
Mepiform is designed for use with old and new hypertrophic scars and keloids. It may also be used on closed wounds, helping to prevent the formation of hypertrophic scars and keloids in the future. Mepiform is an effective treatment for scars caused by caesarean section.
Topical silicone has widely been shown to have a positive impact on hypertrophic scars and keloids. Mepiform dressings should be worn for a minimum of 12 hours daily, and if possible 24 hours per day, with twice daily washing. The dressing can be reapplied. It may take from 3 months up to a year or more to improve an old scar, depending on the condition of the scar tissue. For prophylactic treatment, Mepiform treatment should begin soon after surgical closure, when the incision has fully epithelialised, and be continued for at least 1 month.
