The embrace® Story
For years, the future inventors of embrace® had been discussing the flaws of existing scar treatments—steroid injections, laser therapy, even further surgery to remove raised scar tissue—which were generally expensive, painful, or simply not very effective.
They discovered the idea of reducing tension on the skin by applying an innovative dressing that would gently hold the sides of the closed incision together, protecting and stabilizing the skin so that everyday movement or other stresses would not pull at the incision. This helped prevent the growth of scar tissue that would normally fill the gaps caused by movement.
After years of work and extensive clinical testing, the result was embrace® Active Scar Defense.
