THE EFFECTIVE SELF ADHERENT SOFT SILICONE DRESSING FOR SCAR MANAGEMENT

Mepiform is a thin, discrete, and flexible scar dressing with a soft silicone layer (Safetac® technology). According to international recommendations, dressings with silicone gel should be the first choice when treating hypertrophic scars and keloids which are the most common types of scars.
  • No extra fixation is needed
  • Conforms well to body contours
  • Can be worn in daily activities

HOW MEPIFORM WORKS

Topical silicone has empirically been shown to have positive impact on hypertrophic scars and keloids. 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. Mepiform can optimally be worn 24 hours a day.

It is recommended that Mepiform is removed once a day, e.g. when showering or bathing, for inspection and washing of the skin.

For prophylactic treatment, Mepiform can be used for 2–6 months depending on the condition of the scar.

AREAS OF USE

Mepiform is designed for the management prevention and treatment of scars, specifically:

  • Old and new hypertrophic scars and keloids
  • Closed wounds which may prevent the formation of hypertrophic and  keloid scars

HOW TO USE MEPIFORM

  • Remove the release film. If needed, cut to shape.
  • Apply Mepiform to the scar. No extra fixation is needed.
  • Reapply after daily cleaning of the scar.

 

Mepiform should be worn for 24 hours a day. Remove it once a day for inspection and showering (if needed). The same dressing can be reapplied to the same scar for up to 7 days or as long as it still fixates/adheres. Mepiform does not have to be cleaned or rinsed.

 

BENEFITS OF MEPIFORM

Mepiform with Safetac technology prevents and reduces scars. It flattens, softens and fades red and raised hypertrophic scars and keloids e.g. resulting from surgery and accidents like cuts and burns and it can also be used as a prophylactic therapy on closed wounds for prevention of future scarring.

Mepiform is simple to use and can be used all over the body. It has an UV protection factor (UPF) of class 5 in order to protect the scar. It is waterproof and can be worn while bathing and showering. You can cut to size to fit your scar.

Safetac technology is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Products with Safetac technology are clinically proven to be gentle and to minimise pain to patients and trauma to skin and wounds at removal.

  • No extra fixation is needed
  • Mepiform is thin, flexible and discreet
  • Can be worn in daily activities
  • Can be reapplied
  • One Mepiform product can be used for several days

 

NOTE

Should maceration or rash occur, allow the skin to rest until the symptom has disappeared. Continue treatment and gradually increase the treatment time per day. Mepiform has an ultraviolet protection factor equivalent to 7.7.2
