After a minor or severe burn the skin heals by creating scar tissue. In most cases of severe burns the scar tissue can impair natural flexibility of the skin. 

Dry needling of burn scars can often diminish the raised, thick appearance of the scarred areas, as well as improve flexibility of the surrounding anatomy.  

In addition, burn scars that are lighter than the surrounding unaffected skin tone can often be colored to match and blend in with the surrounding natural skin color.  

Burns scars can be very dense or very thin and fragile. Great caution is taken to ensure that the integrity of the tissue is preserved. In cases of dense compact scar tissue, several treatments may be required to achieve the desired result. 

Scar tissue can often have limited sensitivity so discomfort is usually not a concern. If however, the area is sensitive, safe and effective topical anesthetic can be applied before and during the procedure.  All scar camouflage, burns or otherwise must be a minimum of 9 to 12 months old. 

Fees for burn scar treatments based on individual requirements.  A consultation will be provided prior to the procedures to establish a treatment plan and fee schedule.
