Burn Scars Removal
One of the worst experiences anyone can experience is being burned. The pain can be excruciating and could get worse if the medical staff does not treat it properly. If you have had a certain degree of burn and have received the appropriate treatment, you may want to know more about the options available to get rid of scars. Before you consider the options for treating burn scars, you need to make sure that the burn wounds have healed or healed as well as they can themselves. Dr. Frank offers treatment options for burn scars, but the success of the treatment will be based more on the severity of the burns.
There are three types of burns that can cause scarring.
The less severe burns, but you will feel the pain, tenderness, and swelling of the area. The skin is usually pink or reddish, and the upper layer of the skin (epidermis) is affected. This will usually heal on its own in a few days. Apply cold water and antibiotic creams to the area for immediate treatment. You can expect little or no scarring.
A burn is more serious than the first degree when the epidermis is destroyed and crossed, which reaches the dermis (second layer of skin) and can cause severe pain, swelling, and blisters. The skin will be bright red and the scars will also occur. You can expect healing to take one to three weeks and you need immediate medical care.
By far the most serious burn class. The skin is charred and brown, black or white spots appear. The epidermis and the dermis are completely destroyed. Other tissues, organs, and even bones can also be damaged. There will be deep scars and medical attention should take place immediately.
If you are unhappy with one of these scars and have developed scars, you can look for treatment options to reduce scars once the wound is healed. Dermapen, Fraxel Repair, and Fraxel Restore Dual are excellent options for people with burn scars and wounds.
Dermapen uses small needles (needling skin) to micro-injure the skin, which causes collagen induction. Induction reduces the indentation and color of the scar when your body produces collagen, which allows it to repair and even repel skin. Several treatments are needed, especially for more serious scars. Fraxel Repair and Fraxel Restore Dual-use ablative and non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing on a full range of skin conditions such as scars and wrinkles. Fraxel Repair is an aggressive (ablative) laser treatment that leaves wounds open after deep penetrating scars and requires an approximate five to seven day recovery period. For its part, Fraxel Restore Dual uses a less aggressive approach that leaves no open wounds (nonablative).
