Understanding the stages of wound healing
How to speed up wound healing?
A clean wound is the essential first step for optimal healing. Cleanse your wound from dirt, bacteria and visible particles with the Elastoplast Wound Spray to prevent infections.
The second step is to protect your wound from dirt and bacteria to enable and undisturbed healing. Cover your wound with a plaster, sterile wound dressing or compress from Elastoplast.
Studies have shown that under moist conditions cells will grow, divide and migrate at an increased rate to optimise the wound healing process. In a moist healing environment, scabs – which inhibit the formation of new tissue – are prevented. This helps reduce the risk of scarring, improving the aesthetic outcome.
