Scarring is natural process to healing and is an unavoidable part of life. Scars are the result of damage to the deep, thick layer of skin called the dermis. All wounds have some kind of scarring except very minor injuries, they result from accidents, diseases, surgeries, skin conditions such as acne.
There are two abnormal types of scars, hypertrophic and keloidal. Hypertrophic scars are caused by injury and follow the injury line. Keloids are large bumps and ridges from the spreading of the scarring to the surrounding tissue, most likely to appear on the chest, back, shoulders and the earlobes. People don’t realize that scars can be treated and minimized.
