Compeed® products relieve and protect from pain whilst assisting the natural injury healing process.
Covering a wound with a protective bandage until it heals helps speed healing and helps minimize the chance of scarring because it helps prevent scabbing. Contrary to popular belief, keeping a wound uncovered and allowing it to “breathe” and form a scab actually slows the healing process and when it falls off leaves a visible mark.
Plasters that absorb a wound’s fluids and maintain an important natural moisture balance are ideal for healing. Skin cells are able to migrate easily – without drying out and developing into a scab – to help form new, smooth tissue sooner.
