NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURES

SCARS

Scarring is part of the natural healing process of any injury. Each scarring process is different for every person, and the final result will depend on several factors, as the depth and size of the wound, its location, your age, genetics, and how you take care of it.

tYPES OF sCARS

Contracture scars

These happen as a result of burns. They are deep scars that can even affect muscles and nerves. This type of scar tightens the skin, limiting the movement of the skin.

Hypertrophic scars

They are similar to keloids, the difference being that they don’t extend beyond the wound.

Acne scars

 If you suffered from severe acne, then you probably have them. They can be angular, or look like deep pits on the skin.

Keloid scars

These scars form due to an overproduction of collagen, and they can grow beyond the site of the original wound. They rise above the rest of the skin.

RECOMMENDATIONS

The best way to avoid bad scarring is to carefully follow all instructions given by your doctor. If you are prone to keloids, then you need to take special care of it to ensure the best results. What you should never do is to leave a wound unattended, or ignore a scar that starts to rise, itch or turn reddish.
