Burn scars are usually inevitable when the dermis is damaged and without surgery the wound takes up to three weeks or longer to heal. Although split skin grafts reduce healing times and scarring, they still leave a scar. Even with excellent treatment a scar may be present once the wound has healed. Although scarring can be minimized or improved by various non-invasive, semi-invasive treatments and surgical procedures the scar can’t completely be eliminated. Burn scars are often characterized by hypertrophy, contraction and an uneven texture.
