1. Full-thickness burns (third degree burns)
Full-thickness burns are burns in which damages extend to the fat layer of the skin. This being the case, all epithelial elements are destroyed and skin grafting is needed. Clinically, full thickness burns are classified as third-degree burns and recognizable because the affected area has leathery texture and lacks sensation.
