Wound healing or wound repair, is the body's natural process of regenerating dermal and epidermal tissue.
When an individual is wounded, a set of complex biochemical events takes place in a closely orchestrated cascade to repair the damage. These events overlap in time and may be artificially categorized into separate steps: the inflammatory, proliferative, and remodeling phases
However, these processes are not only complex but fragile, and susceptible to interruption or failure leading to the formation of chronic non-healing wounds. Factors which may contribute to this include diabetes, venous or arterial disease, old age, and infection.
In Office Treatments: At Body Renewal we offer in office treatments such as
- Photodynamic therapy PDT with red and yellow lights for superior wound healing.
- Carboxytherapy which can also be used safely and effectively with no complications against conditions as persistent and difficult to treat conditions such as psoriasis and in wound healing for diabetic and venous insufficiency ulcers.
- Treatments with electrical stimulation such as the Transderm also improve the healing process.
As each patient's case is different; we will tailor a treatment program specifically for you and your circumstances. A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment together with long term maintenance program is recommended.
Body Renewal Tip:
Carboxytherapy can be performed pre surgery to enhance wound healing in tissues. After Carboxytherapy there is increased oxygen perfusion of tissues. This is especially relevant for smokers who have decreased healing post surgery because of poor tissue perfusion.
