Because our skin has such an amazing ability to shed old cells and create new ones, wounds, cuts and surgical incisions can be restored and repaired with a number of different types of processes. While a visible scar may be the necessary and inevitable end to the healing process, the way we heal, how fast and how permanently, depends on each individual person. Some visible scars fade and improve in appearance over time, while others provide the physical evidence of injury or accident and can become quite traumatic for some people.
What exactly is a scar?
A scar is a growth of collagen that is located beneath the skin that formed as a result of wound healing. Facilitating proper wound healing resulting in invisible scar is the goal of every physician. Genetics, age, and even nutrition play a part in the permanent healing of a scar. A scar, depending on its severity can take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to fully mature, and sometimes take up to 24 months to develop and mature to its stable and permanent appearance.
Are there different types of scars?
There are three different types of scars; atrophic, hypertrophic and keloidal. Atrophic scars look like there is a small hole or depressed area of the skin. Hypertrophic scars are elevated and can diminish in time. Keloids are formed by scar tissue that exceeds the boundaries of an original injury or incision. Keloidal scars are expansive and continue to grow. All types of scarring can occur on all areas of the body, but some places on the body such as your knees, elbows and chest are more likely to scar.
