PRP Q & A
Who needs wound care?
If you’re having trouble healing from a painful wound or are concerned about developing complications from improper treatment, seek professional wound care at Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic.
The following wounds benefit from wound care:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Chronic wounds
- Pressure injuries
- Radiation wounds
- Surgical wounds that won’t heal
- Extremity wounds
Many wounds heal naturally without professional care. But you need medical help if your wound heals more slowly than usual, continuously drains or bleeds, or becomes infected.
What should I expect during wound treatment?
Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic has an on-site emergency medicine doctor trained in hyperbaric wound care. His professional experience can help you heal quickly.
The doctor asks questions about your injury and your symptoms. They’ll also do a thorough evaluation of your wound. Your wound care treatment is customized to your health history, the wound you’ve suffered, and how severe it is.
Your provider prescribes antibiotics to prevent or clear up a bacterial infection. They can wrap your wound in gauze or bandages to keep it clean while it heals. Wound care is highly individualized based on the wound you’ve suffered and how severe it is.
How can I prevent needing wound care?
Some wounds just can’t be prevented; accidents happen. But simple preventive actions can help you avoid them as much as possible and prevent complications if you suffer a wound.
If you have a chronic condition that makes wounds especially complicated to heal, be extra careful to prevent them. This means controlling your blood sugar and taking extra care of your feet if you have diabetes.
Here are some tips to prevent wounds:
- Use caution with sharp objects
- Wear soft, comfortable shoes
- Wear protective equipment when you play sports or when needed at work
- Keep your skin moist to prevent cracking
- Seek medical attention at the first sign of an infection
If you suffer a life-threatening wound, call 911 immediately or go directly to a hospital emergency room.
