Despite the many wound treatment products available, scarring and poor wound closure continue to cause significant problems for patients with acute wounds, chronic wounds, and burns. Scarring can cause dysfunction, pain, and other unpleasant symptoms, in addition to being aesthetically distressing. In contrast to products that result in excess scarring, the Phoenix Wound Matrix® promotes the growth of healthy, functional tissue.✧
What is the Phoenix Wound Matrix?
The Phoenix Wound Matrix is a fibrous, 3-dimensional wound scaffold that provides a temporary microenvironment to support wound healing. The device is engineered to promote regeneration and remodeling of native tissue in the defect space/wound bed.✧ The Phoenix Wound Matrix is made of polymers that are naturally absorbed by the body – as such, it should not be removed under normal circumstances. This eliminates the need for painful product changes that irritate the wound bed and disrupt the healing process.
The Phoenix Wound Matrix is designed to: ✧
- Closely mimic the microscopic structures
that support cells in healthy skin
- Accelerate the body's healing response
- Enhance cosmetic outcomes
- Facilitate tissue growth and regeneration
- Reduce scar formation
