Simple Excisions & Moh's Kit
Having skin cancer is upsetting, especially when it’s on your face. But once it’s been removed, it’s natural to think about preventing scars, with embrace® Active Scar Defense—clinically proven, and recommended by doctors and patients. Here’s what you need to know:
How it works: The uniquely designed applicator achieves precise tension reduction on the skin, (tension being the key cause of scarring), to gently hold both sides of your closed incision together. Clear video instructions make embrace® easy to apply, and gentle to remove. Even better, embrace® is water resistant, so you can shower and exercise. And each application lasts an average of 10 days, relieving you of a daily regimen.
How it’s made: Its Stress-Shield™ Technology is constructed of medical-grade silicone and adhesive, protecting from everyday movement while hydrating and softening your skin. The result is a lighter, thinner, flatter scar.
When to start: Apply embrace® on new scars less than 6 months old. For optimal results, use 2 to 4 weeks after suture removal. Tip: The earlier you treat, the better your results.
Lastly, follow through with 60 days of treatment for a beautiful finish. And don’t forget the SPF!
embrace® can be easily applied at home on a closed, dry incision. Do not use while scabs are present. Each dressing lasts, on average, 10 days when skin is prepped properly and dressing is applied per instructions.
Please remove with care, according to the instructions. Medical-grade adhesive is designed to last, so slow, gentle removal is important. We recommend removing embrace® the evening prior to allow your skin to rest 12 to 24 hours between applications.
For best results, continue embrace® therapy for the full 60 days. Your results will continue to improve for up to 1 year.

"It is really important to start scar treatment in the initial stages of scar formation so I start my patients on embrace scar defense around 2 to 4 weeks after surgery and stress the importance of using the full 60 day treatment."

"It replaces the bandaid. If you can place something onto a cut or an incision and it virtually erases the scar or greatly improves the appearance of the scar, I would trade the bandaid for this dressing in a heartbeat."
Dr. John Layke
Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
"I like this product because it’s not a cream or gel that has to be applied multiple times per day, and as a stable dressing, it may reduce pain for some patients, which is helpful after an invasive surgery. More importantly, embrace® is appropriate and effective for all ages and all skin types. And, it can be used on the whole family – from infants, to accident-prone toddlers to adults."
