Scar (Wound) Treatment

Surgery, Treatment of burns and scars
A full-thickness incision on the skin always leaves a scar. But the remaining scar differs in everyone and in each region. The reason for this scar can be a surgical incision, burn, or any injury. If the scar is not caused by a sharp injury such as a knife, it usually heals. On the contrary, the scar on the burned, crushed, and destroyed skin is always worse. While some areas of the body such as the eyelids, face, and mucous membranes heal very well, areas such as the shoulder, back, and chest usually heal poorly and the scar is always evident. This poor wound healing is completely related to the person's body. The probability of developing hypertrophic scars and keloids is very high. On the contrary, it can happen rarely, the traces formed can be so vague that they disappear.

Today, various scars occur in the human body due to numerous surgeries, injuries and accidents. These scars, especially in areas that look like faces, can disrupt the psychology of the person and cause them to feel insecure and bad in society. Everyone wants to get rid of these traces completely, but it is not possible for the traces to disappear completely. But scars can be greatly reduced or given a more obscure appearance.

Two methods are used to eliminate scars or scars. One of them is the surgical method and the other is fractional laser treatment. In the surgical method, the scar (wound) is surgically cut and aesthetic sutures are made to reduce the scar significantly. If the scars cannot be corrected by surgical intervention, there are not many treatment options available. At this stage, fractional laser applications come into play and traces can be reduced.

The most suitable laser type for scar treatment is a fractional laser. In this way, the skin can be fully renewed. Generally, poorly healing scars are both raised, enlarged and red in color. With the Fractional Laser application, the raised scar is lowered to the skin level. The red scar is provided to fade to the skin color and a slight decrease is achieved in the width of the scar.

Fractional laser application is applied once a month for 4-6 sessions. The use of scar-reducing cream or silicone layer between sessions increases the success of the result. But the benefit to be obtained may differ according to the existing scar and the person. Generally, the benefit is in the range of 30-60%. The application should be done in autumn and winter. Summer months are not suitable seasons for application.

After the laser application, a slight brown flaking will occur on the scarred area of the skin, which will last for 3-5 days. It is beneficial to use moisturizing and healing-accelerating creams. The person can take a shower and continue his daily life.
