Fractional laser treatments can help treat burns, according to a study presented in Florida recently.

Approximately 1 million Americans survive serious burns each year, but many are left severely disfigured.

It has been found that Fractional Laser treatment of the burn scars in the early phase of their maturation can minimize the severity of the scar.

Fractional Laser treatments have been used in conjunction with steroid treatments and surgery. It has been especially effective in treating large body surface areas.

It is known that burn scars tend to worsen 3-6 months after the injury.  Early treatment can minimize the scarring and greatly improve the final aesthetic result.
