Trauma/burn scar

The trauma or burn which caused the scar may mean they took a longer time to heal – this can result in more scar tissue being made whilst it is healing and leaves a thicker, problematic scar.

What do they look like?

  • These scars are often thick, red and itchy and stand out against the normal skin. 
  • The trauma or burn which caused the scar may mean they took a longer time to heal – this can result in more scar tissue being made whilst it is healing and leaves a thicker, problematic scar. 
  • These scars can affect any area of the body which has suffered a burn or trauma. 

 

How can this scar be improved? 

  • Scars like these often improve significantly with laser treatment, and in some cases can be treated with surgical scar revision as well.  
  • Scars like these also significantly benefit from scar therapy in addition to laser and/or surgery to reduce the risk of becoming thicker and red again.
