Butterfly closures, also known as Steri-Strips™ (trademark of 3M), are thin adhesive bandages that are used to close small cuts and wounds. By keeping the edges of the wound together, butterfly closures are an alternative to standard stitches for smaller wounds. They also are applied after the removal of sutures and staples to provide wound support.

STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE

StayGuard™ Butterfly Closures are available in 5 different sizes that are suitable for closing different-sized wounds. Made with premium non-woven and rayon materials, our butterfly closures are durable, breathable, and comfortable. To promote healing and less scarring, butterfly closures stay firmly in place and keep the edges of the wound together. They are ideally designed for smaller cuts and wounds as they cause less scarring and are easier to care for. Made with sterile and medical-grade materials, StayGuard™ Butterfly Closures are ISO, CE, and USFDA certified.

PRODUCT USAGE

StayGuard™ Butterfly Closures are used worldwide in hospitals, operating rooms, homes, and clinics. Available for both consumer and hospital use, StayGuard™ Butterfly Closures can be found in retail stores, pharmacies, hospitals, and other distribution channels. As a common item in most first aid kits, butterfly closures are easy-to-use and can be placed without a medical professional. By promoting the healing process of smaller cuts and wounds, they remain the most popular adhesive bandage for skin closure.

FAQs

How do I apply the StayGuard™ Butterfly Closure?
1) Clean and dry the wound and surrounding skin. 2) Peel back package to reveal the strip closures. 3) While folding the card at the end, grasp one end of skin closure with forceps or gloved hands at a 45 degree angle. 4) Apply one half of the first closure to wound margin and press firmly in place without additional tension to keep the edges of the wound closed. 5) Apply additional closures parallel alternatively above and below the wound until the wound is completely closed.
How do I remove the StayGuard™ Butterfly closure?
Gently remove closure by grasping and slowly lifting the closures from each end. Then, carefully lift the closure away from the wound. Be sure not to lift closure from just one end because it may cause the wound to reopen.
How do I take care of the butterfly closure strips?
They should be kept clean and dry for the first five days. Wet strips can trap moisture in the healing wound and promote the growth of bacteria. Water can also dissolve the adhesive and cause them to come off before the wound is healed.
How long should I leave on the strips?
It is recommended to leave on the strips until they fall off by themselves, which is about 10 days. Be sure not to pull the strip across the wound because it may rip open the wound.
How long should I leave on the strips?
Compared to stitches, butterfly closures are easier to care for and result in less scaring. One big advantage is that that they can be placed and removed without the help of a medical professional. They are also used after suture or staple removal to provide wound support.
