What is Scar?

A scar is a mark left on the skin after the healing of a cut, burn or other area of wounded tissue. Because the new skin tissue isn’t aligned with old tissue, the resulting skin appears dark.

Revitalizing your scarred skin to its natural condition depends on new tissue restoration and improved circulation.

How Scars are formed?

Scars formed when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue.

General Scar Causes

Internal Factors

Our genes determine how quickly our body can produce new skin cells and collagen. If our body’s skin cell renewal is slow, then scars tend to be more prominent and take longer to heal.

The location of the wound also affects the way a scar is formed.  Scars formed easily on thinner skin areas, like the skin on the chin, jaw, neck, shoulders, chest and upper back.

External Factors

External causes of scars are often unavoidable, such as acne, chicken pox, vaccinations or surgery. Clean the wound properly to prevent infection and refrain from picking off scabs until the scab comes off by itself.
