The Burn Center at MedStar Washington Hospital Center treats burn scars.
Our specialists understand the physical and emotional toll burn scars can take.
Thankfully, advances in targeted laser therapy present new treatment options.
Whether your burn scar is from a recent injury or has persisted for years, patients at our Burn Center are treated with the latest laser technologies in a compassionate environment focused on improving movement, itchiness, pain, and appearance.
Is laser revision right for my burn scar?
Scarring can have a wide range of causes—including burns. We treat moderate to severe scarring with targeted therapies that give the body a second chance at wound healing. Some patients report easier movement or decreased pain after just one treatment, though some cases may require three to 12 monthly visits. Laser therapy can help those suffering from:
- Burned or damaged skin
- Traumatic injuries
- Wounds that won’t heal
- Post-surgery scarring
