What Treatment Options Are Available for Burns?
Third-degree burns typically damage every layer of the skin with associated peripheral nerve damage. Fourth-degree burns involve the underlying muscle, tendon, or ligament in the affected area. These can be fatal. In either event, individuals who have experienced these types of burns should seek medical treatment immediately.
Burns can be treated in a number of ways depending on their severity, cause, and location. Treatment also depends on the age and health of the patient. Dermabrasion or skin grafts are commonly used to heal and cosmetically improve the areas of damaged skin.
Dermabrasion is used to smooth scars and increase the production of collagen by removing the top layers of skin thereby generating growth of the cells below. Skin grafts, in comparison, involve taking healthy skin from another area of the body to cover the burned area.
