Scars:

We might think of scars as harmless, but there are plenty of reasons people seek scar treatment. Scars may affect patients physically, psychologically, and socially. Disfigurement can affect the way people perceive themselves and the way others perceive them, possibly even leading to feelings of depression or anxiety.

Types of scars:

  • Keloidal scars – caused due to an over-aggressive healing process.
  • Contracture scars -If your skin has been burned, you may have a contracture scar.
  • Hypertrophic scars - These are raised, red scars that are similar to keloids but do not go beyond the boundary of the injury.
  • Acne scars – These scars are caused by acne formation.

Acne Scars:

Acne scars are caused by a loss of tissue (atrophic scars), and those caused by excessive tissue (hypertrophic scars). Within these there are four main types of acne scars:

  • Ice picked
  • Box scar
  • Rolling scar and
  • keloidal scars.

Scars can be difficult to treat and always require professional help.Unfortunately, over the counter products are not powerful enough to improve anything beyond discolouration.

Traumatic Scars:

Traumatic scars result from healing after a significant injury to the skin. There are many potential sources of injury, such as sharp objects that penetrate the skin, chemical burns, and friction. Depending on the size and location of the skin injury, the resulting wounds may heal in multiple possible ways. These range from minimally visible scarring to severe thickening and tightening of the skin that can be disfiguring and/or prevent normal movement.

Causes of Scars:

  • Acne
  • Tattoos
  • Burns and scalds from hot objects or liquid
  • Cuts made during surgeries or sutures
  • The keloidal tendency of skin
