Mepilex Border Flex Foam Dressing uses innovative technology to absorb bacteria and reduce skin stress. Wound Dressings like these stick to skin while absorbing secretions and exudate at a rapid pace. Using Safetac technology, each of the five layers of Mepile Flex works to keep swelling down and reduce skin pain associated with exposure to moisture, according to the manufacturer. This silicone foam dressing comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from 3 by 3 in. and 6 by 8 in.

Apply the Border Flex
Grab a dressing, and remove the outer, purple lining. Carefully place over the wound or affected area. Smooth the adhesive part of the bandage over the skin, making sure to avoid wrinkles and stretching the product.
