Scars

Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (including surgery) results in some degree of scarring. Scarring injuries can cause depressions in the skin surface (atrophic scars) such as those formed as the result of acne, surgery, stretch marks, burns, injuries or infections. Other times they can form a hypertrophic (thickened or raised) scar or keloid as a result of too much scar tissue in the wound.
