embrace® Stretch Marks

 


 

 

Overview

What is embrace® Stretch Marks?

embrace® Stretch Marks improves the appearance, color, and texture of stretch marks.  It has two parts, a patented self-applicator and a silicone dressing. Once applied over the stretch mark area, embrace® combines tension relief to decrease the tension caused by stretching, Stress-Shield™ technology to reduce stretching, and 100% medical grade silicone to soften the appearance and discoloration. 

How is embrace® different from other stretch mark products?

embrace® 


1. Works by contracting to relieve tension caused by stretching. 


2. Reduces stretching via Stress-Shield™ Technology. 


3. Uses 100% medical-grade silicone to help soften the appearance and discoloration of stretch marks.

Who should use embrace® Stretch Marks?

embrace® is intended for use in the management of stretch marks.  It can be used by all genders, ages, and skin types. 

If you have known adverse reactions to medical adhesives or skin diseases that would preclude the use of adhesive dressings, do not use.

What types of stretch marks does embrace® treat?

It works best on red or pink colored stretch marks.

Treatment

When should I start embrace® Stretch Marks for the best overall results?

The most effective time to use the product is when stretch marks are red or pink in color.

How long should I treat my stretch marks with embrace®?

At least 60 days treatment with embrace® is recommended for best results.

How many boxes of embrace® do I need?

Each box of embrace® includes 6 patented applicators and 6 100% silicone dressings. Each dressing lasts an average of 10 days, and is then discarded. Depending on the size of the stretch mark area you are treating, you may require multiple boxes for the full 60 day treatment. It’s best to measure your stretch mark area to determine how many boxes your treatment requires.

When will I see results?

Initial results may be seen in 6-8 weeks.  People heal at different rates, so for some people, it may take longer than others to see results.

Is embrace® safe for all ages and skin types?

Yes, embrace® is safe for all ages and skin types. The 100% medical-grade silicone has no added chemicals or medications. 

Does embrace® have any side effects?

Side effects are usually mild and can include:

  • Minor skin irritation or redness
  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection, pain, and/or fever

Any surgical tape or adhesive skin dressing may irritate the skin upon removal, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. This redness or slight irritation will typically clear during the 12-24 hour break we recommend between applications. Some irritation and redness is normal around the edges of the dressing. If this happens, reposition it slightly higher or lower to avoid direct contact with the irritation when applying the next dressing. If you have questions or experience any of the above side effects, we can help. Please call 855.667.2272 for immediate product support.

I’ve ordered product. When should I apply my embrace® dressing(s)?

We recommend applying at night, at least 2 hours before going to bed. This will provide time for the pressure sensitive adhesive of the dressing to fully adhere to your skin.

When should I remove my embrace® dressing?

Remove embrace® the day/evening prior to applying a new dressing. Remove the dressing when the edges begin to lift, an average of 10 days after application. Certain applications or environments may require more frequent changes due to high mobility, cleansing routine, hair growth, humidity or oil level on the skin.

How do I remove my embrace® dressing?

Please remove with care, according to the Instructions for Use.  Medical grade adhesive is designed to last, so slow, gentle removal is important. Do not pull off quickly as it could cause skin irritation or tearing.

To remove start at one corner/edge and slowly peel the dressing away from the skin while using warm water and soap, or baby oil, or adhesive remover to gently loosen the adhesive.

For sensitive skin we recommend removing embrace® the evening prior to re-application to allow your skin to rest 12-24 hours between applications.

Why do I need to remove embrace® carefully?

Medical grade adhesive is designed to last, so slow, gentle removal is important. Do not pull off quickly as it could cause skin irritation or tearing.

My embrace® dressing has air bubbles and wrinkles. Is that normal?

Yes, the dressing is occlusive, which means the dressing is closed over the skin. Your skin is still breathing underneath the dressing and this is how air pockets occur. Wrinkles are the dressing conforming to your skin and occur due to the nature of wearing a dressing on your skin for 7-10 days. As long as the edges of the dressing are still fully adhered, embrace® is still doing its job and offloading the tension.

There is condensation under my embrace® dressing. Is that ok?

Yes, condensation is completely normal and often occurs after taking a shower or strenuous activity. If the edge of the dressing is not fully sealed and a water pocket has formed inside the dressing, it is time to remove embrace®.

The edges on my dressing are starting to lift. Is embrace® still working?

When the edges of the dressing begin to lift, this indicates it is time to remove embrace. This typically occurs 7-10 days post application. Follow the embrace® removal instructions and allow a 12-24 hour break before re-applying embrace®.
