How To Fade Any Scar
What is a scar?
What are the different types of scars?
1. Normal fine line scars. When there is a minor wound such as a cut, it will usually heal with a raised line. it can take up to two years for it to gradually fade and flatten into a visible mark or line. The same type of scar is common after surgery and can sometimes be itchy.
2. Keloid scars are formed when there is an overgrowth of tissue when too much collagen is produced at the site of a wound. Unfortunately, the scar keeps growing, even after the wound has healed. Keloid scars are raised above the skin. They can appear as pink or red or be the same color or darker than surrounding skin. Keloid scars can be itchy and/or painful, often restricting movement if they are tight or appear close to a joint.
3. Hypertrophic scars. In the same way as keloid scars above, hypertrophic scars are the result of excess collagen being produced at the site of a wound. But unlike keloid scars, hypertrophic scars do not extend beyond the boundary of the original wound. They have the habit of becoming thicker for up to six months before gradually improving over time.
4. Pitted or sunken scars which can be caused by skin conditions, such as acne and chickenpox. As their name suggest, they can have a sunken or pitted appearance. Some of these scars which are also known as atrophic or "ice-pick" scars can develop as a result of an injury that leads to a loss of underlying fat.
5. Scar contractures are the type of scars caused by burns. The skin actually shrinks, leading to tightness and restricted movement.
