Key Benefits

Flamigel® is a hydro-active colloid gel for the treatment of minor wounds which supports the fast healing of skin by covering the wound and creating an optimal moist healing environment. 1-3 Flamigel® is used post lasertherapy, on superficial burns (including those caused by radiotherapy) and on minor wounds (e.g. grazes, cuts). Flamigel® may also be used in superficial open wounds.

It's hydro-active colloid formulation can quickly help soothe the pain of minor wounds due to its cooling effect. Flamigel® helps to create optimal healing conditions to accelerate cell renewal, allowing the wound to heal fast and so reduce the likelihood of scarring. Flamigel® also cushions the wound to provide a barrier against external contamination.

Flamigel® can be used for dry or wet wounds:

  • In case of a dry wound Flamigel® turns the dry wound into a moist one (“hydrogel” effect). The dry wound absorbs the water contained in Flamigel® and promotes the dissolution of necrotic/damaged tissue.
  • In case of a wet wound, the hydrocolloid of Flamigel® is activated and consequently Flamigel® absorbs excessive fluid from the wound and restores and maintains the water balance in the wound (“hydrocolloid” effect).

How to use:

Wash hands before and after application of Flamigel.

For superficial burns and minor wounds (e.g grazes, cuts, bites and stings)

Clean and dry the wound gently before applying the gel. Carefully apply Flamigel® to the wound (without rubbing) once or twice per day (in case of sunburn apply twice to six times daily). If necessary, cover the wound with a plaster or dressing and change daily

For superficial open wounds:

Clean and dry the wound gently before applying the gel. Apply a thick layer of Flamigel® (5 mm) to the wound minimising contact with the wound edges. Cover Flamigel® with a sterile non-adhesive dressing and fix with gauze or a bandage. Leave Flamigel® in place as long as the gel structure is intact. When new skin cells start to form and the wound is closing, only apply a thin layer of Flamigel® to prevent weakening. If necessary, protect the wound edges. Open wounds: change daily.

Removing the gel:

  • Wash hands before and after removing Flamigel®
  • Flamigel® can be removed simply and painlessly with wet gauze

Precautions

  • For external use
  • Side-effects such as irritations or allergic reactions are rare
  • Do not use Flamigel® when there is a known allergic reaction to parabens or any of the ingredients
  • Do not use Flamigel® on the eyelids or in the eyes. If Flamigel® comes into contact with the eyes rinse the eyes with running water and consult a doctor
  • On extensive weeping or infected wounds, consult a doctor before using Flamigel® because other complementary treatments might be necessary
  • If the wound becomes swollen, reddened or painful, or doesn’t start to heal within a few days seek medical advice
