Recovering from a C-section while caring for a new baby is the ultimate challenge. Still, you need to make sure you’re healing well and protecting your incision with embrace® Active Scar Defense. It’s clinically proven, recommended by doctors and patients, and offers some pain relief, which is helpful after what is, after all, major surgery. Here’s what you need to know:
How it works: The uniquely designed applicator achieves precise tension reduction on the skin, (tension being the key cause of scarring), to gently hold both sides of your closed incision together. Clear video instructions make embrace® easy to apply, and gentle to remove. Even better, embrace® is water resistant, so you can shower and exercise. And each application lasts an average of 10 days, relieving you of a daily regimen.
How it’s made: Its Stress-Shield™ Technology is constructed of medical-grade silicone and adhesive, protecting from everyday movement while hydrating and softening your skin. The result is a lighter, thinner, flatter scar.
When to start: Apply embrace® on new scars less than 6 months old. For optimal results, use 2 to 4 weeks after suture removal. Tip: The earlier you treat, the better your results.
Lastly, follow through with 60 days of treatment for a beautiful finish. You may be sleeping less, but you’ll be looking good!
embrace® can be easily applied at home on a closed, dry incision. Do not use while scabs are present. Each dressing lasts, on average, 10 days when skin is prepped properly and dressing is applied per instructions.
Please remove with care, according to the instructions. Medical-grade adhesive is designed to last, so slow, gentle removal is important. We recommend removing embrace® the evening prior to allow your skin to rest 12 to 24 hours between applications.
For best results, continue embrace® therapy for the full 60 days. Your results will continue to improve for up to 1 year.

"I placed the embrace® strips right over the areas of incision and they were great because they relieved the tension from my everyday movements, which helped to prevent more scarring. They also had silicone in the tape to help soften the scars. I didn't have to worry about remembering to apply gel or damaging my clothes, and my biggest fear of not having the surgery done in the first place was no longer a problem. Now, months after the procedure, my scars are all white and barely even noticeable."
Breast Augmentation Patient
"There are a variety of scar treatments available for C-sections or for use in any post-surgical incision or injury, but I like this product because it’s not a cream or gel that has to be applied multiple times per day, and as a stable dressing, it may reduce pain for some patients, which is helpful after an invasive surgery. More importantly, embrace® is appropriate and effective for all ages and all skin types. And, it can be used on the whole family – from infants, to accident-prone toddlers to adults."
Dr. Aldo Guerra
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
"My patients seem to love it. When we place the product, they get this feeling of security when the product’s in place. They don’t like to take the dressing off, and when the dressing’s off, they are anxious to get the dressing placed back on."
