Micropore Surgical Tape

In the medical field, Micropore Surgical Tape isn’t the only adhesive tape that is used. There are others available that are used for specific things. Some are made of different, softer material like cotton. Others are more elastic, supporting flexibility. Below are some of the more common types of adhesive tape and how they differ to Micropore Surgical Tape.

  • Transpore Polythylene Tape
    • This is a translucent tape that is breathable but not flexible; it’s made from non-stretch film. It’s used for securing tubing and dressings, particularly in patients who are wet, bleeding, or sweating.
  • Zinc Oxide Tape
    • This tape is commonly used to prevent sports injuries. As a very durable tape, it can protect athletes from soft tissue damage and stabilize any existing injuries. It’s incredibly flexible, allowing athletes to bend, twist, run and still push themselves without the fear of it breaking.
  • Waterproof Tape
    • This type of tape is specifically designed for use in water. This type of tape can only be applied to dry skin beforehand. If the skin is already moist beforehand, the tape won’t stick.
  • Durable Cloth Tape
    • Durable Cloth Tape is one of the most versatile and widely used of medical adhesive tapes, it’s both flexible and comfortable. It’s often used to secure splints.

Micropore Surgical Tape is great for zero-pressure situations. Gentle on the skin, it stays in place for several days without falling off. It’s breathable and is easy to remove. Able to withstand SOME sweat and moisture, but no waterproof. Lastly, it’s not as flexible or malleable as other adhesive tapes listed above.

Micropore Skin Tone Tape

Micropore Skin Tone Tape is specifically designed to try and mimic the tone of your skin. Big wounds that require a large dressing or wounds that are located in specific areas can be embarrassing for some people. Applying Micropore Skin Tone Tape will cover the area and allow you to about your day, forgetting about any wound or cut that may have been otherwise exposed.

Micropore Skin Tone Tape is exactly the same as standard Micropore tape, but instead of a standard white colour, it matches the colour tone of the skin. Please speak to a doctor if you’re worried about the look of a dressing or wound, and would like to cover it using Micropore Skin Tone Tape.

Below is a video demonstrating proper use of micropore tape for eyelash extensions. Using Micropore tape, simply press one end down close to the lash line, then simply pull the tape slightly, lifting the lid up and press down the other end close to the brow line.
