“I am very pleased to recommend the product to fellow health professionals for the renewal of at risk skin. Your product has promoted healthier skin for my patients.” –Dr. John Mielke, MD

Help speed the healing process and prevent infection for wounds related to surgery. While these are general recommendations, always consult your doctor about health and skin care concerns.

  1. Leave the bandage in place for 24 hours. Remove one day after surgery unless otherwise advised by your health care professional.
  2. Cleanse the wound twice daily with a gentle soap and water. Use a cotton swab to remove any dried blood or related residue. Gently pat dry. Apply a few drops of skin solution.™Cover with a non-stick bandage. Avoid using ointments containing neomycin (Neosporin) as they may cause redness or itching. The wound may bleed or seep a small amount of clear fluid in the first day or two after surgery. If excessive redness or discharge occurs, consult your health care professional immediately.
  3. Two days after surgery, you may be allowed to shower and allow the wound to get wet. Again, follow your doctor’s instructions. Keep the wound covered when bathing. After gently cleansing and drying the wound, apply skin solution and a dry bandage.
  4. Studies show covered wounds heal faster than uncovered wounds.
  5. Continue to apply skin solution 2 – 3 times per day and cover the wound with clean bandages until it is completely healed.

Note: You may have an infection if skin near the wound becomes red, swollen and painful. Consult your health care professional immediately.
