Trophic ulcers and non-healing wounds are skin defects that affect not only the epidermis but also the deeper layers of the skin. Non-healing wounds are wounds that don’t heal within 5 to 8 weeks even when the doctor’s instructions have been followed. Trophic ulcers are pressure ulcers caused by external trauma to a part of the body that is in poor condition because of vascular insufficiency, disease, or loss of afferent nerve fibers.
Non-healing wounds and trophic ulcers are very hard to treat and cause many problems in the lives of patients. Fortunately, with the RecoSMA laser, it has become possible to treat trophic ulcers and non-healing wounds.
Anyone can suffer from non-healing wounds and trophic ulcers, but there are a few factors that increase the chances of them occurring:
Arterial insufficiency (poor blood circulation)
Venous insufficiency (breakdown in the flow of blood in the veins)
Vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels)
Taking certain drugs or medications
Postoperative wounds and traumatic wounds have a higher chance of becoming non-healing wounds or trophic ulcers.
The traditional treatments for non-healing wounds and trophic ulcers include ointments, anti-inflammatory drugs, and antibacterial therapy. However, they are not very effective and can have side effects like suppression of the immune system and slowing down the healing process.
Another treatment for non-healing wounds is vacuum-assisted closure (VAC), in which a device reduces air pressure on the wound. This can be effective but is not always the best option.
At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we use the RecoSMA laser device, developed by LINLINE Medical Systems, to treat long-term non-healing wounds and trophic ulcers. The laser stimulates the healing process, which leads to the closure of the wound and the formation of new, living tissue.
Along with treating trophic ulcers, the RecoSMA laser device is when:
The postoperative wounds don’t heal for a long time
There is tremendous pain in the wound area
There is hyperpigmentation and itchiness in the wound area
The wound is inflamed
There is the formation of pus in the wound
The total cost of laser wound healing treatment in India depends upon various factors such as:
The length and the area of the wound
Number of sessions required
Cost of the facility
The average cost of laser wound healing treatment is around Rs. 3,000/- per session + 18% GST at Arra Aesthetics, Pune. In general, laser wound healing treatment requires 4-12 sessions. The total cost of laser wound healing treatment also depends on the length and location of the wound. Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss every aspect of the cost of laser wound healing treatment with you during consultation.
The procedure for laser wound healing is as follows:
There is no prior preparation required before the treatment.
The surface of the wound is treated with the RecoSMA laser device.
The laser beam penetrates 6mm into the skin and triggers the recovery process in the deeper layers of the skin.
This leads to the size of the wound reducing till it closes completely.
The patient will feel a warm and tingling sensation in the affected area.
The procedure will be almost painless.
The time required for the procedure to be complete depends on the size of the wound. Depending on the size and severity of the wound, multiple sessions may be required.
After the procedure, no ointments, solutions, or powders are required. The patients notice a reduction in the size of the wound immediately after the first session. The pain felt by the patients is also reduced. Thus, there is an improvement in the quality of the patients’ lives right after the first session.
The Patient: 40-year-old man with a wound on his left toe
The Problem: The wound was not healing and there was a risk of infection leading to amputation
The Result: The stubborn wound was fully healed after 5 sessions
"I met with an accident and had trauma to my left fourth toe. There was a wound on the toe which was not healing for 2 months by any means. The treating surgeon suggested amputation of the toe as there was a thin layer of skin that remained above the bone and the infection would worsen things. Finally, I got to meet with Dr. Vasant Gholave at Arra Aesthetics as suggested by my family doctor. After consultation, I preferred laser treatment. The laser treatment was carried out twice a week. After 5 treatment sessions by laser wound healing my stubborn wound was healed completely."
The Patient: 65-year-old woman with a large wound on her right leg
The Problem: The wound was not healing and there was a foul smell
The Attempts: Consulting numerous surgeons and doctors to heal the wound
The Result: The stubborn and foul-smelling wound was completely healed
"My legs were swollen and became stiff due to long-standing varicose veins. Two and half years back I developed a big wound of size 22x15 cm on the right leg. I was very frustrated because of this wound. I changed numerous surgeons and doctors in hope of achieving wound healing. From one of my neighbors, I came to know about a new treatment called laser wound healing. Dr. Vasant Gholave explained about the possible difficulties we may need to encounter in view of the large wound area and long-standing duration. He did debridement first to get rid of the dead tissues. He suggested skin grafting option or laser treatment. As I am an old lady with medical disease conditions I asked him to continue with laser treatment. After 3 weeks of laser treatment when I was seeing the skin layer being formed and the wound was healing, my bad luck struck and I developed an infection again.
My new skin was completely destroyed by infection. So I was admitted and started on injectable antibiotics to get rid of the infection. My morale was down and felt helpless. We again started laser treatment and a ray of hope emerged after 15 days of treatment. Within 1 month the majority of the wound was healed except for a 3x4 cm area. Dr. Vasant Gholave decided to go ahead with skin grafting for the remaining small area so as to get fast results. My joy knew no bounds when I finally got rid of the foul-smelling wound. I am enjoying my disease-free life now."
