Scars are marks left on the skin after a wound or an injury to the surface of the skin has healed. They are very common and most people have at least one on their body. They represent the natural part of the healing process. Scars occur inside and outside the body. On the internal organs, they occur where a cut has been made during surgery, and can develop after certain skin conditions, such as acne and chicken pox.
When the skin is wounded and there is a break in the body’s tissues, the body produces more of a protein called collagen, as part of the healing process. This collagen builds up where the tissue has been damaged. It helps the wound to heal and strengthen. New collagen continues to form and blood supply increases after three months and sometimes longer. It’s causing the scar to become raised, lumpy and red. Some collagen then breaks down at the site of the wound, the blood supply reduces and the scar gradually becomes smoother, softer and paler.
Scars are permanent, but they can fade over a period of up to two years. They won’t fade any more after this time. Skin wounds can be caused by many things: accidental injuries, surgery, burns and scalds, intentional harm.
