Everyday scar care
‘I could not believe my eyes’- Prof. Klaus Eisendle, MBA Professor of Dermatology and Head of the Dermatology Department at Bolzano Hospital, Italy
‘The main thing we want is relief for the patient. Improvement, not only cosmetically, but also functionally. If scars are hard and distressing, they can cause pain. Also, you always want the best possible outcome regarding discolouration and elevation of the scar. I found these properties in Mepiform® by Mölnlycke, and I must say the treatment results are superior.’
‘My first encounter with Mepiform was a tragic case. Unfortunately, I had a 2-year-old patient with a severe burn injury on her chest, cheek and ear. Her father had given her a heating bag as she was feeling ill, and this exploded. We treated the wounds and initially everything was fine, but after 5 weeks she started to develop really bad keloids despite the fact that we had used pressure garments and given her a massage with silicone every day. The father was getting quite desperate.
At this time, I read an article about silicone sheets, and by chance I met a representative from Mölnlycke who gave me a few samples of Mepiform which I used on the patient. Four months later, using the product 24 hours a day, we saw such an incredible improvement that I could not believe my eyes. From then on, I started recommending Mepiform regularly. Today, it really is the first choice of treatment.’
