Laser therapy should be used on deep, elevated burn scars to achieve the best results. Burn scar revision is possible thanks to the cutting-edge technology brought to you by Drs Selvam and Nirmala of the world-renowned aesthetic childcare centre for Dermatological as well as Laser Treatment. In terms of technology and experience, they are the forerunners in the field of laser scar treatments. AKJ Skin and Laser Centre sets itself apart from rivals in Tamil Nadu by bringing in technical experts.
AKJ Skin and Laser Centre is the only clinic in India to use cutting-edge non-invasiove technology like the V beam (candela) - PDL (Pulsed Dye Laser) to treat burn scars early, and Ultra pulse ( Fractional CO₂ laser).
People with scars that restrict movement or daily activities are ideal candidates for laser scar treatment. After three months when your wounds have healed, you can begin laser treatment. Your doctor may recommend three to six sessions spaced out every six to eight weeks. Both laser types are compatible and can be used in the same treatment session.
Occasionally, PDL can be treated in minutes during an outpatient clinic visit. Rather than using anaesthetics, the machine simply produces a cold spray before the laser pulse, which dulls the pain. Most people require one to three sessions of therapy. Different types of scars, such as keloids, hypertrophic scars, and red scars, may need other treatments to achieve the desired cosmetic result. An incomplete response or recurrence is possible with any treatment.
Typically, a local anaesthetic cream is applied to the affected area 30–45 minutes before the fractional CO2 laser is administered. It removes superficial layers of damaged skin by repeatedly blasting in a scanning pattern of short-pulsed light energy (known as ultra pulse). The actual process takes only about 15‑20 minutes.
When the procedure is complete, the skin is left with multiple microthermal zones penetrating deep into the skin, killing any remaining dead skin cells. This can help your body produce more collagen and naturally speed up the healing process. This results in the eventual replacement of damaged skin cells with new, healthy ones.
Burns are categorised as follows:
Patients are advised on treatment at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre based on the severity of their burns.
Laser treatment has the potential to be effective for the majority of burn scar treatments, though it may not be able to completely remove every type of scar. Although we cannot wholly conceal all scars, we can improve their visibility. However, your dermatologist will recommend several sessions to ensure the best results for your particular type of burn scar.
These procedures are entirely painless. The doctor will numb the area around your scar with an injection of local anaesthetic or a topical cream. Doing so,takes away any discomfort. A cold compress and over-the-counter pain relievers can help with any post-treatment soreness you might experience at the scar site.
This treatment does comes with its share of risks. However, when it is performed by a qualified dermatologist like the ones in AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, the risks can be reduced significantly. Among these are:
