Sadly scars are quite common following a personal injury accident.  They can also result from surgery.  Scars occur when the second layer of the skin – the dermis – becomes injured.  It is estimated that globally 100 million people each year sustain a scar.

Typically, younger people heal better and are less likely to scar as opposed to older individuals whose skin may be less resilient to scarring.  

Scars are painful and permanent reminders of an unfortunate accident.  These injuries can cause shame, self-consciousness, embarrassment, anger, and other powerful emotions.  A scar is damaged skin where fibrous connective tissue develops.

Common Types of Scars 

  • Keloid – These types of scars result when the body excessively heals the original injury, and go beyond the original site of injury.  They are raised scars that can be dark, red and lumpy.  Darker skin is more prone to keloid scar formation.
  • Hypertrophic – These scars are raised and red and do not go beyond the original injury like keloids do. These scars can be itchy and painful.
  • Atrophic – These scars can be depressed, or sunken below the surface of the skin.
