What is a Soft Silicone Dressing?

Silicone dressings are dressings coated with soft silicone as an adhesive or a wound contact layer. These are designed to absorb exudate and maintain a moist wound bed to facilitate fast healing. The soft consistency of silicone allows for atraumatic removal of the dressing and ensures low risk of maceration. Soft silicone dressings leave the healing wound surface intact without damaging the newly-formed granulating tissue or epithelial cells.

How do Silicone Dressings work?

Silicone dressings are soft and tacky and therefore conform well to the surface of dry skin without adhering to the moist wound bed. They create several points of adherent skin contact and form a seal around the wound. These dressings do not lose adhesion and so can be reapplied multiple times.

Silicone wound dressings are atraumatic because of the hydrophobic property of the silicone which prevents adherence to moist wound surfaces. They do not impact the wound bed on removal and also do not leave residue behind.

What are the types of Silicone Wound Dressings?

Silicone dressings are available as primary wound contact layer, silicone foam with adhesive and non-adhesive border silicone sheets with no absorbent dressings attached and semi-transparent films with silicone as the interface.

Silicone foam dressings with adhesives are absorbent with a thin adhesive silicone layer that wicks fluid vertically. It minimizes contact of exudate with the peri-wound skin. These are highly breathable dressings with a hydrophilic foam bacterial barrier. They are effective on low-to-high exudate wounds, leg ulcers, pressure sores, skin tears and minor burns. Eg: Mepilex Border Dressing

Primary wound contact layers are soft, comfortable and effective on superficial wounds. They are made of a non-absorbent polyamide net and allow exudate to pass through into a secondary, absorbent dressing. They do not adhere to a moist wound. Silicone dressings for skin tears are common. They also treat abrasions, surgical wounds, second degree burns, lacerations, leg ulcers and pressure sores. Eg: Mepitel

Silicone absorbent dressings have a high exudate absorption capacity with breathable fluid repellent backing. They are effective on pressure sores, sloughy or granulating wounds, skin graft donor sites and fungating wounds. Eg: Mepilex Absorbent

Silicone gel sheets are used on healed wounds and do not require a secondary dressing. Silicone gel for scars is also effective. Eg: TopiGel

When to Use Silicone Wound Care Dressings?
