Correction of scars and burns

It is expected that all injuries that exceed a certain depth on our body will leave scars. Remarkability of these scars depends on the location, depth, shape and direction of the injury. For this reason, these features are taken into consideration when creating wounds in the human body by Aesthetic Surgery, but the scars formed due to various reasons do not recognize such rules, and the scars that occur give sad results. Traffic accidents and burns are the most common causes of such injuries.

Especially because of the scars on the face, many people apply to the doctor. Although it is not always possible to completely eliminate scars, even reducing them significantly gives pleasing results. The first intervention to the wound after the injury is very important and significantly affects the path to be drawn later. Correction of the wound with surgery, abrasion (abrasion, dermabrasion, emery) and various laser applications are some of the ways to be chosen. If the first intervention has been done properly, it is necessary to wait a few months for further procedures. Sunless seasons are preferred for procedures to be performed on the face area. Because the sun’s rays are likely to cause hyperpigmentation (brown spots) in the wound areas, sunscreens can also be used to reduce the sun effect in these areas.

Burns and injuries are common in our country, depending on the type of heating, and the fight against burn scars is quite difficult since the injury areas cover large surfaces. The depth of the burn is called 1st, 2nd, 3rd degree burn. A first degree burn is like a sunburn and heals without a trace unless complications develop. Second-degree burns are medium-deep burns, with good care, they usually do not leave a trace, sometimes a color difference remains. It is inevitable to leave scars in third degree burns, if the burn is large, the aim is to heal before more health problems occur.

Many surgical methods, from simple surgical methods to skin transfers and tissue expansion procedures, are used to eliminate burn scars. After these, dermabrasion (superficial etching) and various laser applications may be beneficial.

Similarly, dermabrasion, ablative or non-ablative laser procedures are used a lot in acne scars. Sun protection is very important especially in applications applied to the face area. With the dermabrasion process, it is possible to completely remove acne scars that are not very deep in the face area. When this procedure is performed on the entire face, general anesthesia is preferred, crusting occurs on the face for about a week, and the wound formed as a superficial abrasion is treated by applying ointment. With the healing of superficial wounds, a new epithelial layer, that is, new upper skin, is formed.
