Burn Scars Treatment

Burn Scars Treatment

The skin is an organ without any marks on birth. Imagine a piece of silk and that is our skin.

Burns can Result In

  • Keloid Scars – raised, red scars beyond the original margins of the injury.
  • Contractures – these scars affect the mobility of the area affected. A contracture develops when the normally stretchy skin tissues are replaced by non- stretchy fibre-like tissue. This tissue makes it hard to stretch the area and prevents normal movement.

    Contractures mostly occur in the skin, the tissues underneath, and the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joint areas. They affect range of motion and function in a certain body part.

  • Sunken in or Atrophic Scars – theses scars are formed resulting in thinning of the skin and damage to the underlying muscle and collagen fibres.
