Your skin is the largest organ on your body; it is living, breathing and fragile. When you get a small cut or scrape your skin will immediately begin to replenish itself to heal the wound. However, for more serious concerns such as deep cuts and burns more serious action will need to be taken.

What are Some Treatment Options for Wound Care in Las Vegas?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
This form of treatment can be traced all the way back to the 1600’s—it involves breathing 100% pure oxygen under increased pressure. The hyperbaric oxygen chamber is used in conjunction with your wound care regimen to heal wounds, especially those that are having difficulty healing on their own.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapies have been shown to aid tremendously for thermal burns. Treatment begins right after the injury and it can reduce hospital and recovery time. To learn more about this treatment option, call today to schedule your hyperbaric oxygen therapy consultation.
For areas of your skin with excess skin loss, such as a burn or a large wound, a popular treatment option is a skin graft. This procedure involves the top two layers from a donor site on your skin (such as upper thigh or buttocks), and transplanting it over the wound. This skin serves as a protective layer while your natural skin regenerates.
After your skin graft, you will have to wear a dressing for 1-2 weeks and avoid any injury to the site for 3-4 weeks. Call today to learn more about skin graft surgery in Henderson.
