embrace® Active Scar Defense is the first scar management product of its kind. The two part device includes a patented self-applicator and a silicone dressing. Once applied over the forming scar, embrace® relieves the natural tension that exists during the skin’s healing process–effectively treating the primary culprit of scarring.

Developed by two of the world’s leading scar experts and renowned plastic surgeons, embrace MINIMIZE™ is a silicone scar-aid made with patented Stress-Shield™ Technology + 100% medical grade silicone. embrace MINIMIZE™ protects and hydrates the scar site, helping to improve the scar’s appearance and texture in as little as 4 weeks.
embrace MINIMIZE™ is intended for use on old, existing hypertrophic and keloid scars from cuts, injuries, or surgeries. Each sheet is designed to last an average of 10 days then discarded. embrace MINIMIZE™ may be cut to size for smaller scars. If you are trying to improve the appearance of an existing scar you’ve had for more than 6 months, then embrace MINIMIZE™ is right for you. If you are looking to treat a newly forming scar that is less than 6 months old, use embrace® Active Scar Defense.
Currently, embrace MINIMIZE is not sold through physician offices and is only sold online.

It is recommended to apply embrace® 1-4 weeks after suture removal on a closed, dry incision, where no scabs are present and worn for approximately 8 weeks (about 2 months). For newly formed scars, treatment with embrace® can be initiated up to 6 months post-surgery. If you scar easily or have a history of keloid scarring, embrace® should be worn for 12 weeks or longer.
