A dermal adhesive (or skin glue ) is a glue used to close wounds in the skin, as an alternative to sutures , staples or clips.

Glued closure produces less scarring and is less prone to infection than sutured or stapled closure. There is also no residual closure to remove, so follow-up visits for removal are not required.
