Wound and burn healing

Domestic accidents, falls, burns... Many situations can produce skin injuries.


The tissues must regenerate in order to achieve optimum healing. Healing is not equally fast in all individuals. The healing process can be encouraged through specific care.

What is healing and how does it take place?

Healing is the biological process whereby skin is restored following damage. It involves a number of successive phases:


  • A vascular and inflammatory phase lasting about three days.
  • A proliferative phase lasting about 15 days, in which the body produces collagen and fundamental substances needed to form new tissue. The scar begins to contract.
  • A final scar maturation and tissue remodelling phase that last several months. The collagen fibres inter-cross following the skin tension lines. The tissue regains its original appearance.
