Optimizing Wound Healing for Cosmetic and Medical Dermatologic Procedures

Optimizing Wound Healing for Cosmetic and Medical Dermatologic Procedures page 1

By: Ashish Bhatia, MD; Jeffrey Hsu, MD; Todd Schlesinger, MD; and Robert Weiss, MD

Published in: Practical Dermatology

On: March 2018

However, three primary conditions are essential for optimal wound healing with minimal risk of scarring. First, optimal wound healing requires the eradication of pathogenic bacteria and biofilm. Second, optimal wound healing requires an excellent blood supply and proper oxygenation. Finally, the proper immunological healing factors must be present in order for the wound to heal. With these optimal healing “primers” in place, the outcome is minimal scarring, rapid healing, and good structure and function of the healed wound site.
