Areas of use MepiformŽ is designed for the management of old and new hypertrophic scars and keloids. Mepiform can also be used on closed wounds which may prevent the formation of hypertrophic scars and keloids.
How Mepiform works Topical silicone has empirically been shown to have a positive impact on hypertrophic scars and keloids. Mepiform should be worn for a minimum of 12 hours daily, and if possible 24 hours per day, with twice daily washing. The dressing can be reapplied. 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. For prophylactic treatment, Mepiform treatment should begin soon after surgical closure, when the incision has fully epithelialised, and be continued for at least 1 month.
