Administering Minor Burn Treatment in Henderson, NV
Burns are an incredibly common household injury. Luckily, it is easy to receive the care you need at Jovive Health, a 100% doctor-owned and -led practice with a clinic in Henderson, Nevada. We offer minor burn treatment on a walk-in basis, and thanks to our short wait times and efficient treatment processes, you will be able to get in and out as quickly as possible.
How Serious Is Your Burn?
Burns are divided into the following four categories based on their severity, with first-degree burns being the least serious and fourth-degree burns being the most serious:
- First-degree burns – Affecting only the outermost layer of skin (epidermis), these can cause pain, redness, and dryness.
- Second-degree burns – These extend to part of the middle layer of skin (dermis) and can produce pain, redness, swelling, and blisters.
- Third-degree burns – Affecting the first two layers of skin—and sometimes the innermost layer (hypodermis)—these may produce numbness and cause the skin to appear deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery.
- Fourth-degree burns – These affect all three layers of skin and, in some cases, may extend to the muscles and bones underneath.
First- and second-degree burns are considered minor burns, and treatment can usually be accomplished at home or at an urgent care clinic like Jovive Health. Third- and fourth-degree burns, however, require emergency treatment.
