Wound care describes treating wounds that have not started to heal after two weeks or have not completely healed in six weeks. This includes:
Professional wound care is critical to avoid serious complications. A wound can become severely infected with cellulitis or sepsis without proper care.
At Wound Evolution in Frisco, we treat the following conditions:
Our wound care in Frisco depends on the type of wound you have but includes the following:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used independently or with other wound care treatments. Because it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, the therapy benefits almost any wound and is a vital component of wound care.
Wound Evolution in Frisco uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat a variety of conditions, including:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and effective treatment for more than one dozen acute and chronic conditions. If you have any of the above conditions, you’re likely a good candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Frisco.
However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy should not be used under the following circumstances:
Your soft tissues and skin need oxygen to thrive and higher oxygen levels to heal. However, following an injury, tissues may be deprived of oxygen, causing further damage or impairing healing. And unfortunately, inhaling oxygen on its own is not enough to jumpstart the healing process.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers concentrated oxygen to areas deprived of circulation. Increasing oxygen levels in your blood can prevent infection and promote healing while reducing the need for more invasive treatments such as wound debridement or surgery.
Before treatment, you must remove hair or skin-based petroleum products and give your provider your cell phone and other electronics.
You’ll have a lightweight mask or hood placed over your head during treatment. The cover releases a steady stream of oxygen directly into your lungs. Our hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Frisco lasts approximately two hours, throughout which the team at Wound Evolution monitors you and the therapy unit.
Because the increased air pressure may cause your ears to pop like they would on an airplane or at high altitudes, you can yawn or swallow to relieve this side effect. After treatment, your therapist will slowly depressurize the oxygen so you can easily transition back to normal oxygen levels. You may feel a bit lightheaded or tired, which will resolve shortly.
Most patients require multiple hyperbaric oxygen treatments for the best results, depending on the following:
During your evaluation, our specialists will recommend the number of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments that will be right for you.
At our Friso location, you will find some of the following services and wound treatments:
We offer specialized wound care tailored to your specific needs. One of our providers will evaluate your wounds to determine the cause and accurately recommend a combination of treatments. Wound healing is a specialty of our Frisco location.
Venous leg ulcers develop when chronic venous insufficiency causes high pressure in a vein. Our Frisco staff can help you find lasting relief from venous leg ulcers and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
This advanced treatment exposes your body to pure oxygen, supporting your body’s natural healing process. At Wound Evolution, our team of wound care specialists provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite as an outpatient procedure to help address several different wounds.
Compression therapy is integral to your treatment for those who do not have an active infection. Pressure stockings prevent blood reflux, decrease fluid leakage, control edema, and slow disease progression, making compression therapy a critical step in healing.
