Hydress® dressings from Alliqua are cross-linked polymer based gels that may be made into sheets. They are able to provide and maintain a moist wound environment. There are several benefits associated with increased moisture content, including the cleansing and autolytic debriding of necrotic tissue.

Hydress® sheets can hold themselves in place; however, they are non-adherent (they do not bond to the wound, skin or hair) and thus can be removed without causing additional trauma to the wound bed. Hydress® sheets have an immediate cooling effect which promotes vaso-restriction promoting a soothing effect that enhances patient acceptance.

While many hydrogels are not highly absorptive, Alliqua hydrogels can absorb 2X their weight in exudate. Borderless hydrogel dressings may require secondary dressings.
