Traumatic situations can cause burn scars, and the team at Brisbane Skin treats many patients whose scarring affects them in their daily lives and their self-esteem.

Typically, burn scars are caused by chemicals, radiation, heat, or electricity. The size and severity of the scar depends on the harshness of the irritant and how long it’s in contact with the skin. Immediately following a burn, acute burn care determines the scar’s
appearance as well.

Burn scars often have contractures, meaning the skin has tightened and may prevent normal movement. Creating individualised treatment plans with his patients and using the Lumenis CO2 laser to treat burns provides excellent scar revision for burns patients.
