Some say scars tell a story of all the hardships we’ve been through, about how far we’ve come. Be it an athletic feat or an injury that you overcame or a sign of a past skin disease, scars can still be unsightly though, and many a time is deemed aesthetically not pleasing.
Scars are a natural result of the body’s healing process and it indicates that tissue / skin has been repaired. Scars are formed when the dermis (deep layer of the skin tissue) is damaged. During the healing process, new collagen fibres are laid down thus resulting in a scar. The new tissue has a different texture and quality compared to normal tissue.
There are many types of scars. Most scars are flat and pale while some are raised due to excessive collagen production. Other scars have sunken or pitted appearance indicating loss of fat or muscle. This is more apparent in surgical and acne scars.
