Providing gentle care for effective burn healing
Most burns are painful and can even be life-changing for the patient. With the right treatment and therapies throughout the healing journey, we can help patients return to daily life faster.
No more trauma
Around the world, burn patients have suffered enough. Therefore, burn survivors need the best possible treatment that reduces additional trauma in the most gentle way.
No more compromises
Effective burn healing
Undisturbed wound healing should be promoted. Using dressings that minimize the risk of maceration, provide an antimicrobial barrier and allow for long wear-time is essential. Pain and stress are contributors to delayed wound healing, therefore it is also key to select a dressing that minimizes additional trauma.1
Experiencing pain and distress is not only a bad foundation for healing, it is also agonizing for the patient. Choosing a dressing that minimizes pain and anxiety at dressing change will contribute to higher patient satisfaction.
Cost-effectiveness is an important factor in implementing a treatment regimen for burns. Dressings associated with fewer dressing changes, nursing time, or analgesic use can reduce total cost of care.

For every one impacted by a wound
Burns happen to people every day all around the world. But most burns are preventable, and by knowing how to provide first aid it's often possible to reduce severity.
Did you, for example, know you should immediately pour cool or lukewarm water on a burn for 20 minutes?
At Mölnlycke, we work to raise awareness and lower the impact of burns. You can be a part of this movement by learning more about how to act when a burn occurs and how to avoid burns in the first place.
