Allevyn provides a moist wound environment to promote faster healing and can be left in place for much longer than traditional dressings such as gauze and tape. The majority of the dressings have a unique hydrocellular structure which manages more fluid than many other products for chronic wounds widely in use, such as hydrocolloids, alginates and other foams. It can therefore be left on the wound for up to seven days. This allows for reduced frequency of dressing changes, which provides benefits to both patients and healthcare providers.
Patients receive improved treatment through minimal disruption to the healing process as well as maintenance of an appropriate wound healing environment in terms of moisture and warmth.
