Defy Scars Before they Start

embrace® ACTIVE SCAR DEFENSE is a preventative device that actively shields damaged tissue to minimize scar formation. It’s the only scar treatment of its kind that is clinically proven effective to significantly reduce the appearance of scars.

How do scars form?

Scars are a result of the skin’s natural healing process after injury or surgery. They form in three distinct phases:

This phase lasts between three to five days, with reparative cells entering the area to initiate the healing process.

Cells called fibroblasts rapidly divide to produce a matrix of collagen. This forms the structure for scar tissue to grow on and fills in the gap made by the wound.

Once the wound is closed, the scar tissue filling the wound is restructured, and new, stronger collagen replaces the pre-existing collagen. During this phase, tension pulling on the skin can lead to widened, thickened and darker scars.

How does embrace® work?

Unlike messy creams, gels, and silicone sheeting, embrace® mechanically relieves the skin’s natural tension while healing. Once applied, its StressShield™ Technology protects and stabilizes the site, providing uniform tension relief while helping diminish visible, thick, raised scars.

STEP 1: Apply embrace® dressing to the scar

STEP 2: embrace® actively relieves the skin’s tension

STEP 3: Each dressing lasts an average of 10 days and is then discarded. For best results, continue treatment for 2 months.
