An ultra-fine, transparent, waterproof adhesive wound dressing that conforms to the body like a second skin with an impenetrable barrier.


A thin, waterproof, adhesive barrier created by wound care experts to look and feel virtually invisible

Our Sterostrip Ultra transparent clear adhesive wound dressing is often referred to as a ‘second skin dressing’ because you can hardly tell it’s there when applied. The transparent polyurethane film is see-through and blends in with all skin tones. Underneath is an ultra-fine dressing pad that protects the wound area without sticking to it, and sits flush against the body.

Not only do clear wound dressings like this look unassuming, but the thin and flexible material makes it super comfortable to wear. This clear wound dressing is barely noticeable once applied, protecting the wound like a second skin that’s flexible and secure. This is a see-through dressing chosen by surgeons for areas like joints where a stiff or bulky dressing could be uncomfortable.

The waterproof breathable wound dressing also gives the patient the freedom to bathe and shower, washing the area of their body without compromising the hygienic environment underneath the dressing. This is an excellent choice for patients who need to get on with life without being held back by a dressing.

Where are waterproof, transparent, adhesive wound dressings used?


Surgeons may choose a fine post-surgery dressing to cover and protect the wound site when dealing with minor operations. A thin, clear, waterproof wound dressing is a good choice when there will be minimal bleeding, allowing the patient to feel more comfortable post-surgery.


Following cosmetic surgery, aestheticians may favour a waterproof surgical wound dressing that is clear and thin to meet the wishes of their clients. A transparent dressing wound cover is more inconspicuous than other opaque varieties while the patient heals.

Personal Wound Care

Sterostrip Ultra Wound Dressings are so easy to use that many people buy them for self-wound care at home. Simply treat the dressing like a large plaster to care for healing injuries without needing to visit a doctor. 

If your wound shows signs of infection or if it is substantially large, deep, or does not stop bleeding, consult your GP.
