This, however, has always been elusive. The introduction of tissue adhesives heralded the era of suture free closures which led to better results. Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of octyl- 2-cyanoacrylate with that of the conventional sutures, in facial skin closure. Results and Conclusion: The use of octyl-2-cyanoacrylate offers many advantages such as rapidity and ease of application and superior results.
