Once the wound is treated, it’s important to consider scar prevention, with embrace® Active Scar Defense—clinically proven to help prevent scars for many kinds of cuts and surgical incisions, and recommended highly 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. Hopefully, there’ll be very little there to remember.
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.

“embrace® helped turn a bad situation (a mother’s nightmare) into something bearable. It helped cover my son’s very visible forehead laceration and KEPT THE TENSION OFF OF IT, actually improving the appearance while he wore it. Plus, it stayed on very well, with sweating and bathing. Having experience with different stages and healing of post‐surgical scars in my career, IT DEFINITELY IMPROVED THE RESULTING SCAR, making it thinner, softer, and lighter. I will be forever grateful for embrace®!”

"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."

"My scars are looking better and better every day thanks to @embracescartherapy. This stuff is seriously a miracle worker! Application 4 of 6 is about to go down!!!"
"embrace® has helped our players resume their activities sooner by enabling their wounds to heal quicker. This has improved the quality of life when injured, leaving them in a better state of mind for rehabilitation, and life, when unable to physically play. We have used embrace® on knee, ankle, and even chest wounds, with significant decreases in scar size and thickness."
