Overview

Embrace is a system used for scar management that relieves skin tension after a wound or surgical incision. By reducing the amount of stress on a wound, it is less likely to form dark, raised, or unsightly scars following surgery or injury.

About the Procedure

After surgery, patients are concerned with having a swift, healthy recovery and whether or not a scar may develop. Raised scars occur when an overproduction of collagen elevates the skin. Collagen is responsible for creating youthful volume, but when there is too much during the healing process, bumpy, keloid scars can form. By decreasing the amount of tension on the incision, collagen production is better controlled. The embrace scar therapy kit includes applicators and silicone dressings. Once staples and stitches have been removed and the incision is closed and dry, the dressing is applied directly over the incision, drawing together both sides and relieving tension. Tension is primary cause of scarring. Embrace is best suited for fresh incisions but can be used on scars that have formed in the last 6 months with treatment lasting around 60 days.

Side Effects

Any surgical tape or adhesive skin dressing may irritate the skin upon removal, depending on your skinÕs sensitivity. This redness or slight irritation will typically clear up during the 12-24 hour break recommended between applications. Some irritation and redness is normal around the edges of the dressing. If this happens, reposition it slightly higher or lower to avoid direct contact with the irritation when applying the next dressing.
