How to use

How to use Leukoplast strips
1. Remove the protective film
Hold the strip in one hand and peel off the upper protective film with thumb and index finger of the other.

2. Apply and remove the second protective film
Place the wound pad centrally on the wound. Make sure that you only touch the plaster on the protective film and the backside, never the wound pad itself. Remove the remaining protective film.

3. Smooth out and press
Smooth out the dressing so that it adheres evenly. Apply only slight pressure and avoid tension. To increase the adhesive strength, you can warm the patch between the palms of your hands before applying it.
