CenterPointLock Skin Barriers
Choosing the right Hollister skin barrier:
- Flextend is an extended wear, synthetic skin barrier designed to be the most resistant to discharge. Do not use skin wipes or skin preps with Flextend skin barriers.
- FlexWear is a standard wear, synthetic skin barrier designed to be worn more than one day. FlexWear barrier is more resistant to breakdown than a SoftFlex skin barrier.
- SoftFlex is a thin and highly flexible hydrocolloid skin barrier that provides gentle adherence to skin. It is designed for more frequently removed pouches like closed one-piece pouches or when the skin is very fragile. SoftFlex is mildly resistant to breakdown and is best used for low water content discharge like colostomies.
- Hollihesive is the most gentle skin barrier, for individuals with sensitive skin or limited dexterity.
