Flamigel is a hydro-active colloid gel for the treatment of minor wounds which supports the fast healing of skin by covering the wound and creating an optimal moist healing environment.
Flamigel is used post lasertherapy, on superficial burns (including those caused by radiotherapy) and on minor wounds (e.g. grazes, cuts). Flamigel may also be used in superficial open wounds. Properties Flamigel hydro-active colloid formulation can quickly help soothe the pain of minor wounds due to its cooling effect. Flamigel helps to create optimal healing conditions to accelerate cell renewal, allowing the wound to heal fast and so reduce the likelihood of scarring. Flamigel also cushions the wound to provide a barrier against external contamination. Flamigel can be used for dry or wet wounds: • In case of a dry wound Flamigel turns the dry wound into a moist one (“hydrogel” effect). The dry wound absorbs the water contained in Flamigel® and promotes the dissolution of necrotic/damaged tissue. • In case of a wet wound, the hydrocolloid of Flamigel is activated and consequently Flamigel® absorbs excessive fluid from the wound and restores and maintains the water balance in the wound (“hydrocolloid” effect).
