Burns of more than 10% of the body in children and 15 to 20% in adults are considered serious and require hospitalization with prompt treatment and rehabilitation. But whether the skin will look the same again is a different tension. More information about this is given, Dr. Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Expert, StemRx Bioscience Solutions Pvt.

Treatment as soon as possible
Burns and surgical scars can alter the function of the affected area. Therefore, new/minimally invasive treatments are the need of the hour that can be initiated as early as possible to facilitate cosmetic and functional recovery.
Body damage due to burns
Blisters can cause damage as well as affect other body functions. It is important to treat internal organ damage after a burn. After emergency management to stabilize the patient and manage symptoms, cosmetic treatment is important and takes years to complete. Furthermore, conventional treatments involving surgeries, such as skin/tissue grafting, are invasive treatments.

Treatment is through stem cells
Treating burn victims starts with understanding the underlying process of swelling and edema (fluid collection in the tissues), doctors say. These occur in the immediate post-burn period and lead to changes in blood pressure and other vital parameters, as well as pain and eventually scar formation.

Stem cells play a key role
Our bodies contain stem cells that play a key role in tissue repair, maintaining the proper functioning of the immune system. Provides and grows healthy cells to replace lost cells. These cells also have anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties, which aid in the wound healing process. Given that these cells are already present in the body (bone marrow, fat tissue, and blood), they are easy to restore through minimally invasive procedures.
The goal is to provide a healthy pathway for cells in the desired area to accelerate healing while minimizing complications. Stem cells increase the function of various types of cells in the body and contribute to restoring the internal balance (homeostasis) of the body.

This reduces the formation of spots
Through the various properties of stem cells and growth factors, swelling and fluid collection are reduced, pain is controlled, scar formation is reduced by more efficiently cleaning the dead tissue in the affected area. All of these improve cosmetic and functional results.
Treatment should be done on time
Timely intervention is essential. Many burn victims are treated with individualized cells, growth factors, and associated rehabilitation treatment protocols. Patients may be able to resume their regular activities in less than 2 weeks.
Swelling and fluid collection are reduced, pain is controlled, dead tissue in the affected area is cleared more efficiently and scar formation is reduced. All of these improve cosmetic and functional results.
