Product Details

microMend is a new alternative to sutures and staples for closing skin wounds as well as protecting the wound site afterwards.

The product is offered in both a butterfly bandage shape and a straight edge bandage shape, with tiny "microstaples" that anchor the device to the skin.

microMend provides safe, secure and very rapid skin closure for a wide variety of incisions and lacerations.

Dermatologic office-based procedures, such as excisions, skin biopsies, and Mohs surgery, are key initial applications of microMend.

The device is also appropriate in many additional clinical settings where several studies have been performed and additional studies are underway. Examples are: general, gynecologic, and urologic surgeries (closing port sites after minimally invasive surgery – e.g. laparoscopic and robotic surgeries) and several types of vascular surgeries (e.g. phlebectomies and radiofrequency ablation).


The microMend device in the shape of a butterfly bandage has the following dimensions – 43mm in length, 6mm wide in the narrow middle, and 12mm wide at each end.

The microMend device in the shape of a straight edge bandage has the following dimensions -- 43mm in length and 12mm wide throughout.
