Scar Removal Q & A
What Is Scarring?
Skin is a functioning organ; in fact, it is the largest organ. As everyone knows, any injury, trauma, or burn can cause a scar to develop. Scars are long-lasting, and most of the time, stick around for life when they are left untreated. A small scar that is relatively easy to cover up generally does not bother most people. Others are prone to showing off their scars as if they were trophies. However, for some, scars are quite embarrassing and unsightly. For someone with such a scar, they know all too well the impact that scarring can have on their self-esteem and confidence.
Scarring is only natural. It is part of the body’s active healing process and is a good sign that one is healthy. The size and appearance depend on multiple factors. These include the significance of the injury, the location, how old one was when they got the scar, their genes, whether they are a man or a woman, as well as their ethnicity. There are also several types of scars, including:
- Keloid Scars — Form through aggressive healing
- Contracture Scars — Formed after burns
- Hypertrophic Scars — Raised, red scarring
- Acne Scars
The type of scarring dictates the ability to diminish the appearance of a scar and available treatment options that one has.
