Scar Burn Fibrosis Rehabilitation

Scar tissue is a network of collagen fibers, a scaffolding of dense tissue. It can be very unsightly and debilitating to those who have them. The process of pain, inflammation, physical and psychosocial healing can be assisted with scar tissue/stretch mark revision therapies that will allow you to regain maximum elasticity and confidence once again. Even people with acne scars can be safely and effectively treated as well.

Our medical staff and therapists have the experience and the tools to improve the appearance of your scar tissue using:

  • Micro dermabrasion, microdermal infusion, chemical peels, all help resurface the appearance of the stretch marks.
  • Meso therapy and micro dermal infusion can inject enzymes and minerals into the stretch marks tissue, to soften the density of the stretch marks, also improving its healing capability and appearance.
     
  • LPG, deep cell mechano stimulation skin tightening. See Endermotherapy below for more information.
     
  • Vitamin, Nutrient & Mineral IV Therapy We utilize zinc and selenium, high dose vitamin C, proline and glutathione along with other nutrients to increase and accelerate the body’s ability to recover.

Burns

The skin is extremely fragile during reconstruction after burning.  It must be mobilized even though it may be extremely delicate and sometimes painful.  Endermotherapy is recognized today by the most well-known burn specialists of the world as an integral part of the therapeutic arsenal for treating scars and burns.

Action: 

  • Drainage of scar edema
  • Vascularization
  • Combating adhesions
  • Mobility of the superficial plane

The conclusions of the different clinical studies emphasize the beneficial effect of Endermotherapy on the reduction of the inflammatory state, cutaneous elasticity.

Scarring

The repair of the skin depends essentially on the stimulation of the connective tissues. In the beginning, the formation of a blood clot ensures a link between the edges of the wound. Then there is a migration of fibroblasts. These synthesize collagen, which, when organized into fibres, constitutes the scar framework.

The scar corresponds, in fact, to a state of fibrosis of the cutaneous connective tissue that is more or less extended, sometimes excessively.  Because of the scar’s location and etiology, it may involve more than the skin, perhaps a muscle (the abdominals, for example), the organs (the uterus, for example), the tendons, the joint capsules (of the knee, for example), or the ligaments (following a recurring sprain). Its extent and its form are the result of the cause, whether traumatic or surgical, accidental or planned, and the quality of the skin, which may heal with or without difficulty.

Complications resulting from tissue fibrosis may present as:

Hypersensitivity rendering the skin painful to the touch and to rubbing around the scar;

Skin that is not very sensitive or totally insensitive;

Loss of cutaneous extensibility, a binding scar or adhesion on the deeper levels, in the organs, bones, or muscle, forming a deep scar that impedes movement and may even affect posture.

In order to limit such complications, a scar must always be mobilized, made supple, and drained. But depending on the location and quality of the tissues, certain scars may be difficult to mobilize manually, even painful when squeezed. Sometimes an old scar presents adhesions and has generated an accumulation of fat, making any attempt at manual treatment both delicate and difficult.

Endermotherapy allows intervention as soon as epidermization is complete while guaranteeing a painless mobilization of the scar tissue on any area of the body without squeezing or uncontrolled traction, which the hand can never do.

Endermotherapy is able to act on very old scars presenting deep, extended adhesions. By its anti-fibrosis action, Endermotherapy permits treatment of all the complications caused by the scarring and it gradually restores mobility and functionality. Whether on the body or the face, the combination of the gentle grasping of tissue and the different rotations of the rollers ensures the scar tissue and the tissues surrounding it a unique, pain-free, non-traumatizing exercise that encourages a real scientifically demonstrated restructuring.

Keloid/Hypertrophic

The choice of Endermotherapy in the particular case of hypertrophic and keloid scars is not contraindicated; by following a precise protocol that respects the scar as long as the inflammatory state persists, the heads armed with motorized rollers, fixed or active, have a primary role to play in activating the scar tissue even at a distance and ensure that surrounding tissues the maintenance of their trophic quality.

Fibrosis

Fibrosis is the densification of the connective framework of a tissue; it is generally of the inflammatory type, resulting from a burn or from trauma or from venous or lymphatic insufficiency. It may also be due to other causes such as aging of the tissues.

Present in the connective partitions of cellulite as well as in burned and scarred skin, in tissues organized by lymphoedema occurring after breast cancer surgery and in stiff joint capsules, fibrosis represents a long-term problem that is considered invincible.  Nevertheless, the connective tissue in which fibrosis is located is a plastic tissue that is capable of structural changes as long as the appropriate, measured stimulation is applied to it.

Endermotherapy encourages the regression of fibrosis by the mobilization that it provides the connective tissues. In the after-effects of trauma, in rheumatology, in lymphology, in the after-effects of surgery, the clinical results are quickly manifested: an increase in the range of movement of the joints, sedation of any pain, improvement in the circulation of blood and lymph.  Multiple practitioners testify each day to the very satisfactory results that they are obtaining on a large number of other types of fibroses, lymphoedemas, cellulite, scarring, tendonitis, the after-effects of burns, and joint stiffness.

Some of these conditions treated include: Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Crohn’s Disease, Lymphoedema and Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.  Some of the improvements include; better circulation, improvement in temperature of the limbs, improved digestion, increased skin quality, decrease in water retention, and overall decrease in muscle aches and pains.Copy
