Laser Treatments for Burns Overview
Recent advances in laser treatments have improved our understanding of wound healing, which has evolved protocols surrounding burn scar management. Burn scars are a complex issue that needs the expert hand of a cosmetic dermatologist who can use innovative lasers designed to help to reduce a scar’s appearance. To do so, physicians today are using improved protocols in laser treatment and beyond.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing
Fractional resurfacing laser treatments can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions. To improve burns, the laser creates thousands of tiny microthermal zones deep in the skin. The skin then starts to repair itself by pushing out the old, damaged skin and replacing it with new, fresh skin.
Each treatment stimulates the regeneration of deeper collagen and elastin tissue, while resurfacing about 20% of the skin’s surface. Your body’s own natural healing process accelerates the production of new collagen and healthy skin cells.
Lumenis Deep FX
Lumenis Deep FX is a fractional resurfacing laser treatment that penetrates deep into the skin in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. It also promotes natural collagen growth. The Deep FX laser treatment is often combined with the Lumenis Active FXlaser treatment for a more comprehensive outcome that targets both superficial and deep-set skin imperfections.
Lumenis Active FX
Lumenis Active FX works best with superficial layers of the skin, so it can be utilized to treat minor burns or after other fractional laser treatments that address more complex lesions and deep layers of the skin. Fractional laser resurfacing treatments are unique and effective because they target only a specific portion of the skin and do not damage other surrounding tissue. They are able to focus on the burn without disturbing the rest of the skin. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov has studies on lasers treating the superficial layers of skin.
