Unfortunately, due to the harmful effects of many traditional antiseptic wound treatments, wound antiseptics lost some of their importance during the last century. With the discovery of penicillin, focus shifted to increased antibiotic use for most infective conditions.The result of this was the rapid rise of multidrug-resistant organisms, and insufficient ways to treat them. The need to develop antiseptic wound treatments which have superior antimicrobial effect, a low risk of resistance while remaining as safe as water, became a priority. Microdacyn gel has all these attributes and has been found extremely effective in wound care and infectious skin defects.
The technology of super-oxidisation
The technology used in Microdacyn® gel is based on electrolysis – a process in which an electric current is passed through water or a solution, generating various reactive chemical species. The unique patented process of creating Microdacyn Gel resulted in a Super Oxidised Solution with superior stability, safety, and efficacy.
Benefits prior to and post procedures
Microdacyn® gel is intended for use in the moistening, irrigation, debridement, and microbial load reduction of acute and chronic wounds, ulcers, cuts, abrasions, and burns. It does this by breaking down single-cell organism in the wound such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and spores which may heighten the risk of infection. It can also be used just prior to an ablative aesthetic procedure to ensure that the skin is free of microorganisms thus reducing the risk of any subsequent infection. It kills most single cell micro-organisms within seconds of contact.
Studies proving results
As a wound treatment solution that stimulates the body to perform its own healing process, Microdacyn gel can then be used post-procedure to keep the wound area moist and to reduce inflammation through its powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. 32 clinical studies have shown that the use of Microdaycn gel reduced inflammation 25% faster, healed wounds 40% faster and resulted in 50% less of re-infection. Furthermore, it showed on average a 60% improvement of tissue and skin conditions around the wound and a 30% shorter hospitalisation with fewer antibiotics. The benefits speak for themselves.
The use of super-oxidized solutions as wound care products has been a cutting-edge concept and results have suggested that this non-antibiotic technology appears to offer a broad new paradigm for the prevention and treatment of acute and chronic wounds. Its relevance then in aesthetic procedures is self-evident – it is advantageous both prior to procedures to prepare the body accordingly, as well as post-procedure in terms of reducing inflammation and expediting healing.
