Scars Treatment

Scars Treatment

Scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process. Scars are the normal body response to injury. Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring.

Scars can result from

  • Burns
  • Injury – Physical, chemical, heat injury
  • Trauma
  • Post Acne

Various Types of Scars

  • Keloid Scars: These scars are the result of an aggressive healing process. They extend beyond the original injury. Over time, a keloid scar may hamper movement. Keloid scars are common among people with dark skin.
  • Contracture Scars: If your skin has been burned, you may have a contracture scar. These scars tighten skin, which can impair your ability to move. Contracture scars may also go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: These are raised, red scars that are similar to keloids but do not go beyond the boundary of the injury.
  • Acne Scars: If you’ve had severe acne, you probably have the scars on the face. This can result in psychological and emotional scarring too.
  • Sunken in Scars: This kind of scarring occurs when underlying structures supporting the skin (for example, fat or muscle) are lost. Some surgical scars or acne scars have this appearance.
  • Stretch marks: stretch marks are formed in normal skin due to overstretching or tension in the skin.

Scars can form

Scars form when the deep, thick layer of skin is damaged. The body forms new collagen (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to heal thearea, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Scars form after a wound is completely healed.
