Micropore is widely used by healthcare practitioners in the first 6 weeks of scar development. This tape protects the new scar from premature exposure to the outside environment. Inflammation in reduced and remodelling of collagen fibre can take place in a calmer more nurturing environment. By protecting the scar the new tissue is not overstimulated leading to further pain and discomfort. Optimal healing occurs and infection risk is also lowered.
