Topical skin adhesive, better known as skin glue is a special type of medical adhesive that is used to join the edges of a wound or a surgical incision together allowing the wound to heal below the joined skin layer. Skin glue is intended to be applied topically to join closed bordering skin edges of cuts due to surgical procedures or punctures from minimally invasive surgery and thoroughly cleansed, traumatic lacerations. Skin glue is suitable for both children and adults.
