How Does the Dressing Work?

Convatec Aquacel Ag Advantage wound dressing absorbs fluid from the wound.

The dressing keeps the wound bed moist, which assists with healing and also reduces the chance that the material will stick to the injury. This makes it easier for the dressing to be changed painlessly.
