How to use Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Dressing?

  2. Thoroughly dry the surrounding skin as the dressing will not stick to a moist surface
  3. Choose a dressing size that will allow the dressing to overlap the wound area by 1 to 2 cm
  4. Cut Mepilex Foam Dressing to the desired size if required
  5. Remove the release film from one side and apply dressing to the side of the wound. Remember not to stretch the dressing.
  6. Remove the remaining portion of release film and smooth the dressing in place. If there is a need for extra fixation, apply it only around the margins of the dressing. For best results, the size of the wound pad should overlap the wound.

Mepilex Border Lite Dressing Change Frequency

Customer Care    08/30/2017

Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing becomes slightly yellow after a while. The discoloration will not affect the properties of dressing.



clifford     09/26/2014

How can it be lifted and adjusted without loss of adherent properties?


Customer Care    08/30/2017

Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing features Safetac technology. Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. The soft silicone moves into the uneven area of the skin and adheres over a large area on the skin. On removal, no stripping of epidermal cells occurs. The soft silicone layer is therefore intact and still adherent. This in contrast to dressings with traditional adhesives where epidermal cells are being stripped off on removal, blocks the adhesiveness.



Lucy     09/19/2014

Are there any precautions?


Customer Care    08/30/2017

  • Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing should be stored in dry conditions below 35°C (95F) and be protected from direct sunlight.
  • Do not use Mepilex Border Lite together with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide.
  • In case of signs of clinical infection, consult a health care professional for adequate infection treatment.
  • Do not use if inner package is damaged.
  • Sterility is guaranteed if inner package is intact. Do not resterilise.
