LACERATIONS REQUIRING STITCHES
We Have the Tools to Properly Treat Your Sever CutsNot every cut needs a trained physician to treat it. However, large wounds that expose fat, muscle or bone are a different matter. If dirt and debris are not cleaned away, you could contract an infection. Worse, if something is trapped in the wound, surgery may be required. Seek out medical attention if you suffer a laceration as described above.
How Does Our Urgent Car Facility Treat Your Laceration?At California Urgent Care Center, we have experience treating lacerations of various types. We can apply whatever treatment method is necessary based on the injury you have sustained.
Skin GlueAlso known as Dermabond, skin glue is often useful for smaller wounds that will not come under tension. It is not suitable for larger wounds.
StaplesOften used for larger straight lacerations, this treatment is fast and effective. However, staples can be uncomfortable and can leave cosmetic blemishes such as scars.
SuturesSutures are the most common form of treatment for lacerations. Also called stitches, these thin fibers are used to sew up wounds. They can repair deep wounds and leave less scarring than staples.
