Burn injuries can cause any of the damaging effects to happen:

2nd degree burns
Damages the underlying layer found directly beneath the skin. They cause blisters and an extreme amount of pain.
3rd degree burns
Go even deeper below the skin's surface and may lead to nerve damage, infection or the need for skin-grafts to repair permanent deterioration of the skin.
