Scars can be caused by burns, injuries or surgeries, because the skin is a seamless organ. If a scar is small or in an area that can be easily hidden, it isn’t that bad. The only option you have is to conceal it under your clothes. But when it’s not, maybe you can find another way to get rid of it or at least make it less noticeable. In reality, the scar won’t go away completely. There are, however, some methods that can help reduce its size and change its appearance.

What causes scars?

After an injury, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. Several factors determine how it appears and how it is treated. In addition to the depth and size of the wound, the location of the wound matters. Also, your ethnicity, genes, and age determine your health.

Types of scars:

  • Keloid scars
    A healing process that was overly aggressive caused these scars. Beyond the initial injury, they extend into other areas.
  • Contracture scars
    When your skin has been burned, it may have contracted. Having these scars can impair your ability to move because they tighten the skin.
  • Hypertrophic scars
    Similar to keloids, but not beyond the boundaries of the wound, these are raised, red spots.
  • Acne scars
    It is likely that you will have scars on your skin if you had severe acne. In addition to deep pits, there are scars that are angular or wave-like in appearance.
