Scar Management Foams

The perfect foundation for scar healing and minimization

Porex® wound care management foams provide the perfect foundation for scar healing and minimization. Our foams combine the tensile strength of pressure therapy with the ideal moisture and oxygen levels for healing.

Our scar management foams include two formulations:

HSS X-7® foam – the perfect moisture and pressure levels for scar reduction

  • Lower porosity for higher moisture levels
  • 350% elongation makes application for pressure therapy easier
  • Lower density makes for more comfortable, less obtrusive daily wear

SUPERSOFT® HL foam – helps protect patients from pressure ulcers and nerve damage

  • Latex-free medical grade foam
  • Ideal for early healed and newly healed wounds
  • Super-soft velvety touch
