Minimize tension, maximize healing
While the tension-related biomechanical processes leading to poor or excess scarring are complex, the solution is straightforward: reducing tension on a healing skin wound can improve healing.
Strain analyses evaluated and compared closed incisions with suture vs. Brijjit. Inspection of the images of suture sites indicates a significant level of local strain whereas the Brijjit closures demonstrated signifcantly less strain.
