Treating with KeraStat®

KeraStat® Gel is a sterile, non-implantable, keratin-based hydrogel intended to act as a protective covering for a variety of partial thickness dermal wounds. When applied, KeraStat® Gel envelops the injury, absorbs excess exudate, and maintains a moist environment to facilitate recovery.
KeraStat® is indicated for the management of partial thickness wounds caused by thermal insult.
