Scarring

Skin is scarred by many causes. These include acne, burns, surgery, accidents or chicken pox. Scars often make people more self-conscious.

As soon as the deeper layers of the skin (dermis) are damaged, the body immediately begins repairing the wounded area. Numerous cells migrate to the damaged area, macrophages remove dead cells and debris and fibroblasts produce collagen that ‘bridges the gap’ over the wounded area to heal the breach in the skin. The initial wound is healed but unfortunately the fibroblasts over produce collagen after the healing process is complete forming a scar.
