Advanced Wound Care

In the mid 1980’s, exciting new data began to drive the way clinicians managed hard-to-heal chronic and acute wounds. This new data suggested that, contrary to the notion that a wound would heal better if left exposed to air, in fact a moist environment is more conducive to wound healing. Products to provide a moist and occlusive environment began to create the market for what are considered “advanced wound care dressings”.

Derma Sciences developed and to take that theory one step further by additionally promoting the topical absorption of micro-nutrients, including zinc, at the cellular level.

20 years later, the science has advanced to even more ’active’ products and therapies. Our , , and offer clinicians advanced novel products to better manage the challenging wounds they treat every day.
