Skin Glue: Medical Glue for Wound Closure
Skin glue, sometimes known as medical glue, is an alternative wound closure method to surgical suture. The antibacterial skin glue can also be used for securing sutures or for haemostasis. Medical glue is available either as a physiological, dual-component adhesive from biological sources (fibrin glue) or as a purely chemical product (Cyanoacrylate). The skin glue's water-tight seal reliably protects the wound from contact with germs, while actively fighting the risk of infection.
Skin Glue for Painless Application & Discreet Scars
Skin glue is quite easy to apply and has a polymerisation time of only a few seconds. Compared to surgical suture, the application of medical glue is painless and atraumatic. Therefore, skin glue is also gladly used when the patient prefers to have smallest and most discreet scar possible. In order to minimize tension on the wound edges, the deeper tissues and skin layers can be sewed with surgical suture prior to applying the glue.
