Made with a unique silicone technology, Stratacel is formulated for post-fractional laser treatments, to protect compromised skin from bacteria, reduce the skin’s inflammatory response, and speed up the healing process. It creates a self-drying, transparent, flexible, gas-permeable, waterproof gel sheet that adheres directly to the skin, covering your wound to ensure it heals properly. The consistency of the gel is thinner than Stratpharma’s other silicone gel dressings, making it easier to spread and remove. It’s also been shown to help minimize the discomfort and irritation typically associated with fractional rejuvenation procedures, such as itching, redness, and pain.

- Recent studies have shown that a semi-occlusive wound dressing promotes faster recovery from fractional procedures because it prevents maceration—when excess moisture causes skin to look and feel wrinkled, pale, and soft—while still allowing the skin to release moisture. This leads to faster recovery, enhanced healing, and a reduction in side effects like redness and irritation.
lean and dry the area that was treated, then apply a very thin layer over top. Wait five to six minutes for gel to dry so that it creates a transparent, flexible film on the skin. For best results, Stratacel should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the fractionated wound has fully healed. Apply once or twice daily, as needed. It can also be used under a secondary dressing, which can be put on immediately after the gel is applied—no need to wait for the gel to dry. In this case, Stratpharma Stratacel should be reapplied whenever the wound dressing is changed.RealSelf tips:
If Stratacel takes longer than six minutes to dry on your skin, you’ve most likely applied it too thick. Use a tissue to lightly wipe away excess gel, then wait for the remainder to dry.
For additional soothing benefits, keep Stratacel in the fridge for a cooling effect when applied.
To protect compromised post-procedure skin and prevent further damage, be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher on top of your Stratpharma Stratacel application, once it has fully dried.
