BURNS TREATMENT - JEL3108
Safe and effective peptide treatment for skin burns
A burn is a type of injury to the skin caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, friction, or radiation. The depth of burn is important in determining its management and current treatment depends on the severity of the burn. Burn tissue, when healed, forms a ‘bird’s nest’ of collagen, in contrast to healthy skin which forms sheets of collagen which has mobility and allows for normal function. The disordered collagen found in scars resulting from burns does not have the same function.
Burns that take over 21 days to heal will result in a scar. The inflammation related to burn wounds contributes to the issue by delaying healing. Unfortunately, burn tissue only has 80% of the (tensile) strength of healthy, normal tissue and has a different visual, structural and physical properties. It is therefore weaker, more inflexible, more vulnerable. Pathological scars might result from constant inflammation, which can be bulky and aesthetically unsightly, causing disfigurement. In joint
Current scar prevention therapies use of non-invasive scar management strategies such as silicone-based products, hypoallergenic microporous tapes, pressure garments and manual or mechanical scar massage. Semi-invasive scar management techniques can include microneedling and dermarolling, shockwave therapy, intralesional corticosteroid injections and laser resurfacing. Invasive scar surgery offers operative reconstruction for most severe and restrictive scarring.
