Laser therapy for soft tissue injury, wound management
Patient, female, age 45 years
The patient had a traffic accident on the evening of the 11th of June followed by acute care in the local hospital. The patient suffered under severe soft tissue damages on the mouth and lip nose area, a deep laceration inside the upper lip was closed by the surgeon with three stitches. Four frontal teeth were destroyed. Bone and soft tissue trauma on cheeks and face area. Joint injury on the hands and knee.
Because of the injury the patient could not move lips or open the mouth prior to laser therapy. The joints on the hands where swollen and hard to move.
It was important to reduce the risk of scars in the facial area. The laser therapy was the method of choice to perform fast and stable wound management, pain free condition and scare free tissue healing.
The patient is very thankful for this gentle and fast therapy. Pain free healing success within one week.
The therapy started in the morning after the accident.
