Close skin wounds quickly and safely and achieve better cosmesis with the Zip surgical skin closure from ZipLine. After you apply deep, tension-reducing suture layers if necessary, use Zip instead of sutures, staples or glue. It's three times faster than using sutures. It allows you to easily control tension and alignment. There are no "railroad track" skin punctures as with sutures, and so no new potential pathways for infection. Zip is incredibly strong. Scarring is minimal, and removal is as atraumatic as peeling off a bandage. Flexible design supports greater range of motion during recovery. Choose from several different lengths.
