embrace® is the first scar management product of its kind. Developed out of Stanford University by a team including Geoffrey Gurtner, MD, FACS and Michael Longaker, MD, FACS, embrace® is both FDA cleared and proven highly effective at
preventing scar tissue formation.
Each embrace® dressing is an elastomeric device which precisely loads and controls tension, optimizing tension off-load with every dressing. Once applied, the dressing is held on the skin by a medical grade adhesive and delivers a
consistent, compressive force that creates a mechanically privileged environment around the healing scar. embrace®’s Stress-Shield™ technology improves the appearance of scars
after most surgical procedures, such as breast augmentations, face lifts, or even heart surgery. See how embrace® can make surgical scarring a thing of the past for your patients.
THE SCIENCE OF SCAR REDUCTION
- Wounds under tension are prone to exuberant scarring.
- Studies show that a low tension environment promotes better healing and reduces scarring.
- embrace® relieves tension across the newly formed scar.
