Scarring is a result from the body’s natural healing process after the tissue has been damaged. When structural damages to the deeper layers of the skin occur, the type of damage depends on the nature of the wound that produced the scar.
The body forms new collagen fibres to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new tissue will have a different texture and quality to that of the surrounding tissue.
This scarring can occur from – but is not limited to:
Injuries and trauma to the skin
Burns and scalds
There are also a variety of types of scars such as:
Sunken or pitted scars – Occurs when underlying structures supporting the skin are lost.
Raised scars – Hypertrophic scars e.g. Keloid, when the body produces too much collagen.
Scar Contractures – Skin shrinks usually from burns leading to tightness and restricted movement.
Stretch Marks – Where the skin rapidly stretches, the dermis breaks in places allowing the deeper layers of the skin to show through. This usually happens during pregnancy, weight gain or growth spurts due to puberty.
