Biafine Topical Emulsion Description

Biafine is a water-based topical emulsion devised as a management and dressing for superficial wounds, minor abrasions, burns (including from the sun), and for post treatment of radiation dermatitis. Biafine works with your body’s own healing process to moisturize, heal, and protect your skin when it has been compromised. A prescription is required in order to buy Biafine Topical Emulsion.

How Biafine Topical Emulsion Works

Biafine works to soften scarred and dead superficial tissue and promotes the natural healing process by enhancing macrophage development at the affected site. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that ingest and destroy bacteria as well as clean up cellular debris, harmful particles, and dead cells that may contain bacterial or viral microbes. After the dead cells have been ingested by the macrophages they take some of the material from the microbe inside their cell and introduce it to other cells in your immune system so they will all recognize the “intruder” and act accordingly.

Uses for Biafine Topical Emulsion

Biafine may be used to dress and treat wounds, pressure sores, leg ulcers, minor scrapes, first and second degree burns (including sunburn) and radiation dermatitis. Any cuts, burns, or abrasions on your skin can be an open invitation for bacteria to enter and cause an infection unless treated right away to reduce that risk. Biafine is ideal for hydrating skin tissue, softening scars, reducing your chances of possible contamination, and promoting your body’s own antibacterial activity. Skin grafts and donor sites may also benefit from Biafine as directed by your doctor.

Bedsores (pressure sores) are one of the skin conditions that can be treated with Biafine. You are likely to develop bedsores if you are confined to bed or a wheelchair and do not move regularly. The damage to the skin that becomes a pressure store occurs when prolonged pressure is applied to the area. This often occurs in areas that are bony, such as the ankles, heels and hips.
