Looking for alternatives to staples or sutures for wound closures? We offer steri-strip products (also known as butterfly stitches) that are comfortable and hypoallergenic. Also very important is they have the reinforced strength and coating to keep a wound closed and stay in place on the skin. This type of wound closure can also lessen the scarring for serious wounds.
Though Steri-Strips (or butterfly stitches), act like like a suture because they are used to close small wounds, they technically are not a suture. This is advantageous because a medical professional does not need to place or remove the steri-strip hence their inclusion in most first aid kits.
