Advantages of Scar Treatment for Burns

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).

Other advantages of laser scar removal for burns at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre include:
  • Provides cutting-edge methods for treating scars
  • Uses phototherapy, which is non-invasive.
  • Repairs damaged skin cells using narrow and controlled laser beams.
  • Increases collagen production and decreases burn scarring.
  • PDL lessens scar redness and increase flexibility, while CO2 laser releases tightness.

AKJ Skin and Laser Centre's Burn Scar Procedure

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.

Pre Care
Post Care
There are a few precautions patients should take before the procedure:
You should abstain from sunbathing, tanning bed use, waxing, chemical peels, and collagen injections for two weeks before the procedure.
It's essential to keep the treatment area free of perfumes, deodorants, and other irritants before, during, and after your procedure.
Due to an increased risk of bleeding, you should avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements.
Patients may feel nothing more than a mild stinging, akin to a mild sunburn, in the treated area immediately following surgery. Here’s what you need to do for quick recovery.
Applying cold compresses or damp clothing can help alleviate the pain.
If you have any redness or stinging after the treatment, wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup or lotion.
For the duration of the treatment and at least three months after it, it is recommended that a good moisturising lotion be applied twice daily at the site of the treatment.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

How do burn scars form?
Scarring from a burn occurs when the skin comes in contact with a hot object or fire. Burns can also be caused by contact with electricity, chemicals like acids, the sun, and certain types of radiation. The burn's appearance and texture depend on the severity of the injury.
How are the different types of burns categorised?

Burns are categorised as follows:

  • Superficial or First Degree
  • Deep Partial Thickness, or Second Degree
  • Full Thickness, or Third Degree,
  • Fourth degree

How long will it take for the laser burn scar treatment to work?

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.

How painful is the laser scar treatment?

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.

How much does laser therapy for burn scars typically cost?
Typical factors that affect the cost of burn treatment at a given clinic include the type of laser technology employed, the number of sessions required, the severity of the burn, the level of expertise of the treating dermatologist, and the clinic's location.
Are there any risks of this treatment that I need to be aware of?
