What causes a Burn Scar or Keloid Scar?A burn is a type of injury to flesh caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, light, radiation or friction. Most burns affect only the skin (epidermal tissue and dermis). Managing burn injuries properly is important because they are common, painful and can result in disfiguring and disabling scarring, Burn scar contracture refers to the tightening of the skin after a second or third degree burn. When skin is burned, the surrounding skin begins to pull together, resulting in a contracture.
Needling Burn ScarsThe challenge of a burn scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Burn scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s unique vertical stamping and depth control, up to 2.5mm, helps alleviate the appearance of surgical scars and can be a better modality to other methods or rollering.
