Hydrogel Dressings - Introduction | How it Works | | Advantages | Indications | Top Seller Products

Hydrogel dressings are transparent, usually gel-based and have exceptional wound healing properties. Hydrogel dressings play an important role in wound care. The benefit of using hydrogel for wounds lies in its high water content. It provides a moist healing environment important for fast recovery and regulates fluid exchange from the wound surface. At HPFY, we offer high quality hydrogel dressings made by the best brands in the business like Medline Industries, MPM Medical, Southwest Technologies, Dumex/Derma Sciences, and many more.

How does Hydrogel work?

The high water content of the hydrogel dressing keeps the wound area moist and offers protection from bacterial infection. Therefore, this dressing type promotes healing because moisture is important for wound recovery. Presence of moisture on the wound helps in autolytic debridement – that is removal of necrotic tissues from the wound surface. Hydrogel dressing also assists in wound granulation, epithelialization and epidermis repair plus offers trauma-free dressing change. Because of its cooling sensation, hydrogel gives relief from pain lasting up to six hours.

What are the advantages of using hydrogel dressing?

  • Has a high water content of 90%.
  • Requires a secondary dressing in order to keep it secure and hydrated well.
  • Needs changing every four days or whenever the dressing is seen to be wet and exudate-heavy.
  • Gel content in the dressing allows it to act as wound filler and fill in hard-to-treat “dead spaces”.
  • Non-adherent property reduces dressing change trauma.
  • Available in sheets, tubes, gauze, spray gel, pads, etc.

Different Forms of Hydrogel for Wounds

Hydrogel dressings come in three different forms, namely:
  • Amorphous Hydrogel: It is a free-flowing wound gel packaged in tubes. Because of its excellent viscosity, this dressing helps fill in deeper wounds which are difficult to treat. It needs a secondary dressing to secure it in place.
  • Impregnated Hydrogel: It is available as gel saturated onto gauze pads, gauze strips and non-woven sponge ropes. Hydrogel impregnated gauze dressings and the others can be used to pack in uneven wound surfaces. They need a secondary dressing to provide a protective covering.
  • Sheet Hydrogel: Hydrogel is saturated inside a fiber mesh which is thin and flat. It is available as non-adhesive but with/without adhesive border. Hydrogel sheet dressings conform easily to the wound area.

What is Hydrogel Wound Dressing used for?

Hydrogel dressings are beneficial on wounds that are dry and painful.If the wound is necrotic, this dressing eliminates the need for too much cleaning-up during dressing change and are impermeable to bacteria and other infection. Hydrogel bandages do not adhere to the wound thus allowing for pain-free removal.

When to use Hydro gel Dressings?

Hydrogel dressings are beneficial on wounds that are dry and painful. If the wound is necrotic, these dressings eliminate the need for too much cleaning-up during dressing change. Hydrogel bandages do not adhere to the wound thus allowing for pain-free removal.


Hydrogel wound dressing products work on several types of wounds such as:
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Superficial burn/first degree burn
  • Venous ulcers/foot/leg ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Partial thickness burn/second degree burn
  • Surgical/post-operative wounds
  • Laceration/abrasions
  • Partial/full thickness wounds
  • Superficial or low exudate wounds
  • Low-to-moderate exudate wounds
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Donor sites
  • Acute/traumatic wounds
  • Blisters

When not to use Hydrogel Wound Dressings?

Hydrogel for wounds should be avoided if the wound exudate is high and the wound surface is too moist. Therefore, hydrogel wound dressings should not be used on moderate-to-heavily exuding wounds.

What are different types of Hydro gel Wound Dressing Products?

Hydrogel wound care gel products are available in adhesive and non-adhesive dressing types plus waterproof. You can select from absorbent hydrogel dressings, wound fillers, non-adherent hydrogel dressings, antimicrobial hydrogel dressings, hydrogel gauze dressings, adherent hydrogel dressings, silver hydrogel dressings, and transparent hydrogel dressings.

FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

Hydrogel dressings provide hydration to the wound surface and help heal damaged skin layers, veins and tissues. These dressings offer a moist healing environment by regulating the exchange of fluid on the wound surface. Apart from several other compounds, hydrogel is made up of 90 percent of water which is suspended within a gel base. Certain hydrogels act as cooling agents and keeps down pain from the surrounding skin and wound healing surface for at least six hours. The gel within the hydrogel dressings helps fill in and pack wounds.

Hydrogel dressings are used to treat several types of wound including:

  • Dry or dehydrated wounds
  • Partial or full thickness lesions
  • Minor burns
  • Wounds with granulated tissue development
  • Radiation skin damage
  • Abrasions or severe scrapes
  • Painful wounds

Hydrogel dressings comprise 90 percent water in a gel base. The moist environment prevents bacterial infection of wounds thus encouraging efficient healing. The moisture assists in granulation, epidermis repair as well as removal of excess dead tissues.

Amorphous hydrogel dressings are water formulations, polymers and other ingredients with no shape. They provide moisture to dry wounds. The higher the moisture content the better the rehydration of wound tissue.
