INSORB Absorbable Skin Stapler

Revolutionary Absorbable, Subcuticular Skin Closure Device

INSORB is a revolutionary absorbable, subcuticular, skin closure device,  which combines the cosmetic results of sutures with the speed and efficiency of a conventional stapler. INSORB contains 30 staples which are comprised of the absorbable co-polymer PLA and PGA, which is absorbed over 90-120 days. Staples are placed completely under the dermis, with no percutaneous insult or staple removal required (please view video for technique, and staplers mechanism).
