• Designed to blend with many skin tones for a cosmetically pleasing appearance
• Breathable, porous material
• Non-reinforced closure with a pressure sensitive adhesive


3M™ Steri-Strip™ Blend Tone Skin Closures can be used when there is a need for a non-reinforced, gentle closure. Ideal for face and hand applications.


Do not use where good adhesion cannot be obtained due to the presence of exudate, skin oils, moisture, or hair.
Do not use on infected wounds.
Do not use in high tension wounds which cannot be easily approximated with fingers or forceps.   

Warnings and Precautions

To reduce the risk of infection, do not reuse strips and dispose of unused strips.
As with all adhesive products applied to the skin, a small percentage of individuals may experience skin irritation or injury during wear or removal.
Tension caused by post-operative edema, body/joint movement or applying skin closures under tension may cause skin injury, including blistering or loss of adhesion.  
Use with adhesive adjuncts may cause blisters or skin injury.

Mode of Use/Application

Clean and dry skin. Remove excess hair. If desired, apply a thin layer of 3M™ Steri-Strip™ Compound Benzoin Tincture to enhance skin closure adhesion. Approximate skin edges using fingers or forceps. Apply strip without tension using gentle, but firm pressure. Smooth from the center outward. Space strips approximately 1⁄8 inch (3 mm) apart. Additional closures may be applied parallel to the wound and approximately ½ inch (12 mm) from closure ends to improve adhesion.

Removal & Change Frequency

Gently peel skin closure "low and slow", towards the center of the incision, while supporting the skin. Removal is dependent on wound type and clinician discretion.
