Today, we wanted to share an incredible story of how you, a supporter of the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society, are the true hero for burn survivors.
After years of fundraising efforts and institutional approvals, the Burn Unit at the Foothills Medical Centre has acquired a carbon monoxide laser.
You’re probably wondering how this laser can help burn survivors…
Here is a note from Dr. Nickerson, Medical Director for the Firefighters Burn Treatment Centre:
“Laser resurfacing can help burn survivors by not only improving the comfort of scars but also the appearance. Laser resurfacing can assist in loosening tight scars, flattening thick scars, and reducing chronic itch in certain situations.”
