Mode of Use/Application

The DermaHug is used in conjunction with a sterile dressing. Apply the sterile dressing first. After the sterile dressing has been applied, remove backing to expose the silicone gel. Once backing is removed, apply gel-side first to one side of the wound and smooth down to the skin. Holding the applied side, gently stretch the device over to the other side and attach to skin. Smooth the entire device down on the skin.

Removal & Change Frequency

Peeling back slowly, remove the DermaHug slowly while supporting the skin with the other hand.
