How Scars Formed?

Scars form when the dermis is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers naturally to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture than the surrounding tissue. They are formed after a wound is completely healed.

Scars take many forms including raised, pitted and stretched. A raised scar is due to overproduction of collagen. A stretched scar can occur when the skin is under higher tension during the healing process. This is common when the wound is near a joint.

Common Types of Scars

Hypertrophic scars are red, thick and swollen. They are sometimes painful or itchy, but are equal to the size of the affected areas.

Keloid scars are thick and irregular.  They are often darker than the regular skin tone and extend outside the affected areas.
