Burn Injury

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are painful and can leave long-lasting physical and psychological scars. Burns are characterized by severe skin damage that causes the affected skin cells to die.  The treatment of burns depends on the location and severity of the damage. Burns can be one of the most expensive and traumatic injuries to treat. 

Generally, there are four types of burns:

  • First-degree burns usually heal on their own.  A common example of a first-degree burn is sunburn.
  • Second-degree burns damage the outer layer of the skin and also the layer beneath it.  The type of treatment for second-degree burns vary, but these burns may require a skin graft, which is the grafting of natural or artificial skin to cover the affected area.  Scaring is common with second degree burns.
  • Third-degree burns damage or completely destroy both layers of the skin, as well as damage underlying tissues.  These burns always require skin grafts, and in many cases, a debridement of the damaged skin and tissue.
  • Fourth-degree burns extend beyond the skin and tissue and include damage in the muscle, fat, and sometimes the bone.
