Wound care at InFocus Urgent Care involves treatment by specialists with extensive training in acute and chronic wounds, particularly injuries that heal slowly. Many large and non-healing wounds occur because of sudden injuries, diabetes, or surgery.
The InFocus Urgent Care wound care specialists treat a variety of wounds at the urgent care clinic, such as:
Puncture wounds cause narrow, deep holes that are often difficult to disinfect. While they typically don’t bleed as much as other wounds, punctures can penetrate deep enough to cause significant tissue damage. Such wounds may appear because of a tack, needle, knife, or other pointy objects.
Lacerations tear your skin, causing deep cuts. Often caused by sharp objects, lacerations produce jagged wounds and often excessive bleeding.
Incision results because of a surgical procedure with a scalpel. These wounds are clean and smooth, rather than jagged. Surgical incisions often cut through your skin and underlying tissues. They can become infected when not cared for properly.
Abrasions are rough, painful scrapes that don’t usually bleed much. Most abrasions appear because of friction with a hard surface. Examples include rug burn and road rash.
An avulsion is more severe than a laceration. It involves complete tearing of your skin and the tissues beneath it. Avulsions are damaging, deep wounds that often bleed heavily.
Non-healing wounds are those that don't heal after a four-week period. They may appear because of:
Wounds that don’t heal on their own can become infected with debris and bacteria. If you have an infected wound, the infection can spread to other areas of your body and become dangerous when left untreated.
