How does L-Mesitran Active work?
When the Active is in contact with the wound, fluid is drawn from the surrounding tissues through osmosis. By doing so, a moist wound healing environment is created, which stimulates the wound healing process, aids wound bed preparation by facilitating autolysis of necrotic and other devitalized material, and promotes better epithelial cell migration.
L-Mesitran Active has antimicrobial properties due to its strong osmotic activity. The Active will dilute gradually and can be removed easily as per local wound cleansing protocols. Active is a primary wound dressing that can be covered with the commonly used secondary dressings. The properties of L-Mesitran Active also help prevent the secondary dressing from adhering to the wound bed.
