Film-forming, flexible, full contact

Film-forming, flexible, full contact

StrataCTX is a flexible, full contact wound dressing that forms a thin film and ensures constant contact with the skin.

Protection

Protection

StrataCTX is bacteriostatic. It protects the skin from irritants and microbial invasion while reducing the risk for contact dermatitis.

Light adherence

Light adherence

StrataCTX lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer. It does not adhere strongly to the wound bed or the newly formed granulating tissue.

Reduced downtime

Continuous contact

StrataCTX should be in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day/ 7 days a week).

Reduced downtime

Hydration

StrataCTX is semi-occlusive and gas permeable, which allows the skin to breathe and remain hydrated.

When used as directed Strata CTX dries to form a protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof which hydrates and protects compromised skin areas and superficial wounds from chemical irritants and microbial invasion. Strata CTX is a self-drying, non-sticky gel formulation that lightly bonds to the most superficial damaged skin layer.

Strata CTX helps to promote a moist healing environment for wounds or compromised skin. This moist wound healing environment promotes faster re-epithelialization and significantly reduces the skin’s acute inflammatory response.

StrataCTX is suitable for children and people with sensitive skin. StrataCTX is intended for single patient use. It is ideal for large surface areas and contoured skin (e.g. head, face, hands and feet) as well as joints. It can also be used on hairy areas without the need to shave them.

  • StrataCTX is transparent allowing users to monitor therapy progress without having to remove the dressing.
  • StrataCTX is used to relieve low grade inflammatory changes such as dry, itching, flaking, peeling and irritated skin. In cases of more severe inflammatory changes, StrataCTX reduces pain, redness and heat sensation.
  • StrataCTX was developed for use on all types of wounds.
  • StrataCTX can be used with or without a secondary protective dressing.

StrataCTX should be applied at least twice daily to the affected areas or as advised by your physician.

For best results, StrataCTX should be in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours a day/ 7 days a week).

Applying StrataCTX

Step 1: Prepare your skin

Ensure that the affected skin or superficial wound is clean. Prior to gel application, gently pat dry the area and remove as much excess exudate or wound fluid as possible.

Step 2: Apply StrataCTX

Apply a very thin layer of StrataCTX directly on the affected area.

Step 3: Allow the gel to dry

When applied correctly, StrataCTX should be dry in 5 – 6 minutes.

If it takes longer to dry, you have probably applied too much. Gently remove any excess gel with a clean tissue, gauze or paper towel and allow the drying process to continue. Remember: a small amount of gel goes a long way.

Step 3 B: Cover with secondary dressing

Apply a thin layer of StrataCTX, then cover with a secondary dressing. Drying is not necessary.

StrataCTX should be reapplied when changing the dressing, when checking the wound progress, or as advised by your doctor.

Step 4: You are ready to go!

Once dry, StrataCTX can be covered with clothes, sunscreen or cosmetics.

Removing StrataCTX

Removing StrataCTX

Any excess of StrataCTX on your hands can be easily removed by washing them with liquid soap and warm water. Repeat if necessary.

Removing from clothes

SStrataCTX may stain clothing if not completely dry. If staining occurs, dry cleaning should be able to remove it without damaging the fabric.

Tips for StrataCTXusage

  • StrataCTX may be kept in the refrigerator to relieve the burn sensation that might occur following radiation therapy sessions.
  • StrataCTX may also be used in conjunction with other treatments to improve overall results.
  • StrataCTX can be used with or without a secondary protective dressing.

StrataCTX is recommended as a treatment following the first signs or symptoms.

It should be applied until the skin condition is resolved or until no further improvement is seen.

StrataCTX gel is an advanced formulation that requires substantially less product per application than typical moisturizing creams or barrier ointments. A little bit goes a long way.
