Third-degree burn, cut-away artwork. A third-degree burn is a severe burn that damages the top layer of skin (epidermis, dark pink), the underlying tissue (dermis, pink) and the fatty layer (subcutaneous tissue, yellow). Granulation tissue is seen forming at the base of the wound, fed by a capillary (bottom centre). Eventually this will become fibrous and form the scar.
