The Advantages of Using Exofin Topical Skin Adhesives In Wound Care

 Advances in wound care have evolved with the introduction of new technologies, and topical skin adhesives have become a popular alternative to invasive stitches and sutures.

Topical skin adhesives have been shown to save time during wound repair, providing a flexible water-resistant protective coating and eliminating the need for extensive wound care follow-up. In addition, patients have reported better aesthetic outcomes, where scarring and hatch marks are reduced.

The Exofin® range of adhesives has been developed for small wound care, providing a strong and flexible microbial barrier that is ideal for healing trauma induced injuries, surgical incisions and lacerations. 

 

What are topical skin adhesives?

Topical skin adhesives act as a medically approved glue to close a simple wound by holding the edges of the skin together to aid in healing. The polymerizing liquid cyanoacrylate hardens into a solid chain when it comes into contact with the skin, forming a protective coating to prevent infection.

Historically, its medical application was used for quick and easy wound treatment when surgical options weren’t possible, but in modern medicine its use has been commonplace for a variety of procedures.

Most commonly, the two types of cyanoacrylate skin adhesives are based on octyl and butyl formulations. Key considerations for choosing a skin adhesive include:

  • • Strength
  • • Flexibility
  • • Set time
