How Mepilex Lite Works?

Molnlycke Mepilex Lite is a thin and highly conformable foam dressing, which absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound healing environment. Safetac layer seals around the wound edges to prevent the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin and minimize the risk of maceration. Safetac layer also ensures atraumatic dressing changes. Mepilex Lite can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations.
