A lot of experiences are available regarding burn injuries but as the tendency of recovery is greatly affected by the severity (depth and extent) of burn, treatment protocol of burn injuries should be determined on an individual basis by the doctor of the given Gyógycentrum.

In general, regular Sensolite treatment of burns may significantly enhance the reproduction of missing connective tissue and epithelialisation. If skin transplantation is required, prior treatment of the burnt skin surface with polarized light greatly enhances the adherence of the transplanted skin as well as it prevents “rejection” of the transplanted skin.

Égési sérülésDaily treatment of new burn injuries must be avoided; no more than 3 treatments per week are recommended in the case of burns. After the acute phase Sensolite therapy should be started as soon as possible as its use significantly reduces pain.

The surface of burn injuries is often superinfected but Sensolite light treatment may prevent bacterial superinfection of burnt surfaces and helps reduction of inflammation in inflamed areas. However, make sure that inflamed wounds are not treated with polarized light as it may flare-up. Practice has shown that regular therapy with polarized light inhibits keloid formation. Excessive i.e. too frequent and too long light treatment should generally be avoided, particularly in the case of burns.

I. Doctor’s opinion

“We have good experience in the treatment of various – chemical and physical – burns. Burn injuries caused by hot water or hot oil were cured within significantly shorter time, with treatment started on time inflammatory complications occurred less frequently, and in some cases the pain of patients may be significantly reduced. In the case of febrile condition and/or new burns it is recommended to wait a few days, and then start the whole-body polarized light therapy. The patient always lies into the light bed with the dressing applied. We never manipulated burn wounds or changed dressing on them. The number and frequency of light therapy depends on the size, depth of the injured area and the severity of the burn but it is generally recommended to apply the treatment 15 to 20 times on every other day. We have seen that skin lesions caused by burns and burn wounds in children and adults recover faster and with better aesthetic result with Sensolite therapy. Whole-body polarized light therapy had very beneficial effect in one of our patients who suffered serious burn injury on the front-inner surface of the thigh several years before the treatment; surgery and skin transplantation were also necessary. After approximately 20-25 treatment sessions the affected area became significantly more beautiful and smoother, and the patient’s permanent itching resolved. According to our experience in burns, Sensolite therapy effectively completes special medical therapy of patients, alleviates their pain and the affected skin surfaces recover with better aesthetic outcomes as a result of the treatment.” Dr Erzsébet Ladányi, internist-nephrologist, chief physician

II. Patients’ experience

Égési sérülés“My 4-year-old son became ill and could not go to the nursery so I stayed home with him. I was boiling water in the kitchen while he was playing in his room when suddenly he sneaked after me and as I lifted the boiling water from the stove I got so frightened that I poured the hot water on my neck, breast and arms. I had awful pain, I was immediately hospitalized and I thought I would not be able to work for at least 1 month. One of my fellow patients in the hospital told me about Sensolite, fortunately, there is a Gyógycentrum in our town so I started the therapy. My pain notably decreased from the first treatment and – if a burn can be characterized this way at all – my wound was healing beautifully. Even my doctor was surprised because of the rate of my recovery. After an intensive therapy I received treatment 2 times a week for 5 weeks and now the accident is “just” a bad memory.” Cs. B. Sz.

“I remembered that last year one of our friends had a similar experience as I had. After sunburn this friend also used the light bed and recovered unbelievably fast and beautifully. I went to Sensolite on the same day but I was not allowed to use the therapy as the burn was very fresh. However, two days later I started the therapy and the burning redness actually decreased, moreover, it was a real surprise that my skin did not start to peel off. This treatment course was very good for me.” D. A.

The treatment frequency recommended by us provides results but if our Patient feels that he/she wants to use Sensolite light therapy more frequently, he/she has the possibility to do so after consultation in the Gyógycentrum. However, please note that the energizing effect of light therapy sometimes speeds up the body, thus excessive light treatment may cause sleep problems. Additionally, in such cases light therapy is recommended in the morning instead of evening before bedtime. If you should be active in the evening or at night, it is recommended to come to the Sensolite Gyógycentrum before your activity.
