Butterfly wound closures are the ideal product for small cuts, wounds and incisions. These are protective adhesives that are sterile, waterproof and latex-free.
Butterfly Wound Closures, Butterfly band aids, or Butterfly stitches are thin adhesive strips used to close small wounds. The application of Butterfly bandages across the laceration is easy to apply. Simply pull the skin on both the sides of the wound and stretch the strip over it. Butterfly sutures are not true sutures, but can often be used in addition to, or in place of real sutures for small wounds. There is no need of a medical professional to place or remove Butterfly stitches, and are thus this is a common item found in first aid kits. These Butterfly band aids are called various names, including butterfly bandages, butterfly closures and wound closure strips.
A Butterfly bandage can be used to close a deep laceration and to heal a major cut if you are not able to get to a hospital for stitches. It can keep the wound closed and promote speedy healing. The adhesive surface of the bandage sticks well to skin without sticking to the wound. A butterfly bandage is an easy way to provide quick first aid for a cut that occurs at home or at work.
DIRECTIONS:Remove facing tabs from closure wings. Apply wing sections on either side of wound with nonstick center directly over the wound.
