* Intended use:
Stratamed can be applied to open wounds and areas where skin integrity has been compromised. Stratamed can be used with or without a secondary protective dressing.
Stratamed is used for:
– The protection and hydration of superficial wounds, burns and compromised skin.
– The prevention and treatment of keloids, hypertrophic and excessive scars.
Stratamed may also be used in conjunction with invasive scar management options to improve overall results, including surgical excision and resuturing, intralesional steroid injections, laser treatments and pressure garments.
Stratamed is suitable for children or people with sensitive skin.
Stratamed may be used on infants, during pregnancy and while breast-feeding.
** Directions for use:
Ensure that the affected skin or wound is clean.
Gently pat dry as much excess exudate or wound fluid from the area as possible prior to gel application.
For best results Stratamed should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day).
On damaged or broken skin not requiring a secondary dressing:
Apply a very thin layer of Stratamed to the affected area and allow the gel to dry. Stratamed should be applied once daily, or twice daily to exposed areas or as advised by your physician.
Once dry, Stratamed may be covered by sunscreen, cosmetics, pressure garments or casts.
On damaged skin or wounds requiring a secondary dressing:
Apply a thin layer of Stratamed then cover with the secondary dressing.
Stratamed should be reapplied when changing the dressing or checking wound progress, or as advised by your physician.
When applied correctly to the affected areas, Stratamed should be dry in 5–6 minutes. If it takes longer to dry you have probably applied too much. Gently remove the excess with a clean tissue or gauze and allow the drying process to continue.
** Recommended duration of treatment:
Stratamed is recommended for immediate treatment post procedure and should be continued until the skin has fully recovered.
For resurfacing and ablative procedures, continued use is recommended for a minimum treatment of 30 days (24 hours a day / 7 days a week) or until no further improvement is seen.
For abnormal scar prevention, Stratamed is recommended for a minimum treatment of 60–90 days (24 hours a day / 7 days a week). Larger scars may take longer.
Continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen.

A full contact flexible wound dressing which provides an optimal wound healing environment and abnormal scar prevention.
Stratamed is a semi-occlusive, self-drying and transparent gel.
When used as directed Stratamed dries to form a protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof which hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and open wounds from chemical and microbial invasion.
Stratamed can be applied to fresh incisions and excisions, open wounds and compromised skin surfaces including those from post laser treatments, chemical peels, dermal abrasion, 1st and 2nd degree burns and radiation therapy.
For open wounds and compromised skin:
Stratamed gel is bacteriostatic and inert.
Stratamed dries to form a thin, flexible wound dressing which hydrates and protects affected areas. Stratamed helps create an optimal wound healing environment for superficial wounds and burns.
This environment leads to faster re-epithelialization and a reduced inflammatory response, which reduces recovery time post procedure.
Stratamed does not adhere strongly to the wound bed or the newly formed granulating tissue.
Stratamed is a self-drying, non-sticky, transparent, gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer.
