More on Dermabond
What is DERMABOND ADVANCED™ and why do doctors trust it?
DERMABOND ADVANCED™ is a liquid bonding agent that holds many cuts, wounds, and incisions together as effectively as stitches do. It's the strong, flexible, needle-free wound closure choice that puts you back into your day-to-day life.
Exceptional wound protection.
Not only does DERMABOND ADVANCED™ provide a strong, fast hold, it's a layer of protection from the bacteria that may lead to infection.
Plus, DERMABOND ADVANCED™ is waterproof, so you can shower immediately after surgery. You'll know your doctor is using the best when you see the skin adhesive with the purple tint.
The comfort you want.
Many people like DERMABOND ADVANCED™ because it comes off by itself as the wound heals, and there's no pain or discomfort from bandages and dressings, or the removal of stitches or staples.
Easy on your skin.
Since there are no stitches, there are none of the discolorations or "track marks" that stitches can leave around wounds and incisions. DERMABOND ADVANCED™ is especially desirable for the sensitive skin on your face. That's why so many surgeons prefer to use DERMABOND ADVANCED™.
How DERMABOND ADVANCED™ works to protect you
The adhesive material in DERMABOND ADVANCED™ forms a strong microbial barrier to protect wounds while they heal.
DERMABOND ADVANCED™ wears off naturally during the healing process, which is usually completed within 7 to 10 days. If your doctor uses absorbable sutures and DERMABOND ADVANCED™, you will not need an appointment to remove stitches. However, your doctor may want to check on your progress.
Remember: only your doctor or other trained clinical professional can apply DERMABOND ADVANCED™.
How It's Applied
The video below shows the application procedure for DERMABOND ADVANCED™.
After cleaning your wound, your doctor or trained healthcare professional will apply DERMABOND ADVANCED™ in one thin layer with a light brushing stroke while holding the edges of the wound together. DERMABOND ADVANCED™ produces a strong, flexible bond in 95 seconds.
