Collagen dressings are dressings that are derived from animal sources, such as bovine, equine, or porcine sources. The collagen helps to promote the growth of new collagen at the wound site, prompting a speedier recovery period.
These provide a natural scaffolding for new tissue growth. They can be used on a wide array of wound types to assist with healing.
Much of the success of wound healing depends on the patient. He or she must keep appointments, follow directions carefully, and monitor progress closely between visits.
