The demand for cosmetic procedures is a global increasing trend.

Cosmetic procedures

Following an aesthetic or cosmetic treatment, post procedure care is the key for achieving the best result and patient satisfaction. Stratacel was specifically designed to adhere gently to existing epidermis, making it the ideal post procedure dressing for fractional skin injuries. It complements leading rejuvenating technologies and enhances the best aesthetical outcome.
Fractional procedures


Fractional skin resurfacing procedures are aesthetic procedures generally conducted to safely improve the changes in color, texture, and tone of the skin which are caused by photo damage, acne, and scarring. They only damage the defined skin area which is being treated in a dotted or pixelated fashion. This way in order to it is possible to accomplish a significantly reduced the patient downtime. This way the skin recovers faster but usually more than one treatment is required to achieve the desired outcome.

Stratacel is indicated in the most common types of devices producing a fractional injury:



Laser

Laser resurfacing represents an exciting development in the cosmetic surgeon’s repertoire to improve the tone, texture, and pigmentation of the skin.

Microneedling

The tiny needles of the device make invisible perforations in the top layer of the skin. Collagen and elastin are reactivated to heal the skin and thus rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.

Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency skin rejuvenation devices are predominantly used to treat the loss of elasticity in the skin by applying an electric current.

Microblading

This form of permanent make-up is performed by depositing pigment superficially in the upper region of the dermis with the use of a hand tool with needles fused together in a blade shape.

Tatto removal

Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using fractional lasers that break down the ink particles in the skin.

Vaginal rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation is essentially a tightening of the vaginal wall usually performed with specially adapted laser devices.

Fractional injuries usually have some post-procedure effects:



 

Erythema

                             

Burning discomfort

                             

Itching

                             
 
          

Erythema


More prolonged erythema may occur as an unwanted adverse effect but it is also transient in almost all patients treated with non-ablative lasers. More prolonged erythema is noted in all patients after ablative laser skin resurfacing. Its duration (from days to several months) depends on the depth and degree of dermal wounding. Erbium lasers typically produce less post-operative erythema than carbon dioxide lasers. Erythema can be concealed with make-up containing green pigments. Additionally, using sun protection or avoiding the sun all together should be encouraged during the entire period of post-LSR erythema to minimize post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation. This is particularly important in patients with skin phototypes III through VI.

          

Burning discomfort


After the procedure ice packs, cold compresses and pain medication may help to alleviate pain. Approximately 85% of patients require pain medication for the first 3 days post-operation.

          

Edema


The severity of edema can be controlled with ice packs and elevating the head at night. The time until the complete resolution of edema is significantly shortened when full contact semi-permeable dressings are used compared to open wound care post-procedure.

          

Itching


Pruritus is often relieved by cool compresses. Over half of all patients require oral medication. Control of pruritus is essential since excoriation may result in scarring.

          

Erythema


More prolonged erythema may occur as an unwanted adverse effect but it is also transient in almost all patients treated with non-ablative lasers. More prolonged erythema is noted in all patients after ablative laser skin resurfacing. Its duration (from days to several months) depends on the depth and degree of dermal wounding. Erbium lasers typically produce less post-operative erythema than carbon dioxide lasers. Erythema can be concealed with make-up containing green pigments.
