Skin burns cause skin cells to die. Damaged skin produces a protein called collagen to repair itself. As the skin heals, areas called stains, which become thicker, create scars. Some wounds are temporary and will fade over time. Major burns are usually permanent. Burn marks on your face or body can affect your aesthetic appearance. The amount of heat of the caustic source and the length of time it stays in contact with your skin determines whether you have received a scar and how large it is. Burns are classified according to how much of your skin is affected. You can contact our doctor for more information.
