When patients have experienced trauma on the skin such as burns, it may be leave behind telltale signs. This is especially true for large areas where burns have left significant scars. In situations such as this, the team at Skin MD and Beyond may speak to patients about burn treatment options to reduce their appearance. Dr Fiona Wright offer a few different solutions for patients to choose from to replace damaged skin cells with healthier ones and reduce burn scar appearance.
What methods of treating burn scars are available at Skin MD and Beyond?
There are a few different approaches our team may take when it comes to reducing the appearance of burn scars for new and existing patients.
Below are just a few of the treatments that might be recommended by our team:
- Fractionated Co2 lasers – both burn scars and keloid scars can be treated with fractionated Co2 laser therapies, which allow laser light to penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin, replacing damaged skin with new skin cells over time.
- DEEP FX and SCAAR FX – both of these treatments use laser microbeams that penetrate deep to flatten and soften scars, while breaking down scar tissue and stimulating the skin’s natural healing response well within the dermal layers.
- Injections – another option is that of cortisone injections, which can flatten and soften extremely thick scars on the skin, while also reducing common concerns such as itching and pain.

During an evaluation with our team, we can make recommendations regarding the best solution for you based on the size, area, and severity of the burn scars on your skin.
