Scarring Is A Natural Part Of The Healing Process

Small or large, surface level or deep, almost everyone has at least one scar on their body. Caused when the deep, thick layer of skin (also called the dermis) is damaged, scars form when the body produces new collagen to repair the injured skin.

New scar tissue will appear when the wound has healed entirely. Scars are typically a different skin tone and texture, and although they will fade with time, scars will never fully disappear. This can cause noticeable scars to have a significant impact on confidence.

There Are Several Types Of Scarring

Scars come in all shapes, sizes and shades, making some more noticeable than others. The cause of the scar generally depicts the appearance, with the most common types being:

Fine Line Scar

Fine line scars are the most common and appear as a raised line that flattens with time. They are usually caused by surgery or an injury and may be itchy for the first few months.

Keloid Scar

Keloid scars are generally the most noticeable as they continue to grow after the skin has healed. They are raised scars, typically pink or darker in tone compared to the surrounding skin.

Hypertrophic Scar

Hypertrophic scars occur when the body produces too much collagen to heal the injury. Although they will thicken for around 6 months after the incident, they will not be larger than the wound.

Contracture Scar

Contracture scars occur when the skin is forced to shrink, most commonly due to a burn. Due to this, most with a contracture scar find that the skin becomes tight and movement is restricted.

Pitted Scar

Pitted scars, also known as sunken scars, are caused by skin conditions that damage the dermis layer, such as acne or chickenpox. They appear as indented impressions on the skin.
