Scarring

Injuries, surgery, burns, and scalds can cause scars upon any
surface of a person’s body. To heal after a wound or trauma,
the skin produces an excess of collagen. This results in a visible
patch of thick, fibrous skin in its place. The scarring that remains
causes many of us to feel self-conscious; however, our medical
professionals can help.

Scars form due to injury when the damaged skin repairs itself
and reconnects. The body’s natural healing and repair processes
produce additional collagen at the site, aiding the healing process.
This results in the formation of thick, fibrous tissue that differs in
texture and appearance from normal skin

There are various types of scars, each with its distinct characteristics. Fine line scars typically occur after a minor cut or surgical procedure and often start as raised lines that flatten over time. Keloid scars occur when there is excessive tissue growth at the wound site. These scars can be highly raised above the skin’s surface and may even restrict movement, depending on their location. Keloid scars tend to continue growing even after the wound has healed.

Hypertrophic scars, like keloid scars, involve an overproduction of collagen at the wound site. Although they do not extend beyond the original injury, they may thicken over time. Pitted or sunken scarring, or atrophic or ice-pick scars, can result from conditions like acne and chickenpox. These irregularities occur when the injury causes a loss of underlying fat. These scars often cover a large area and occur from the shrunk skin, causing tightness and restricted movement.
Most people find they have a scar somewhere, and although scarring will often fade over time, will not disappear totally. Scarring can affect the even tone of the skin and affected people would often like to lessen its appearance, especially if it is in a noticeable place.

At Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building, Liverpool, we offer many treatments to help.
