What is a Scar? A scar is a natural part of the body’s healing process of repairing the skin and other tissues. Scars are made from collagen. Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring and are an aftermath of either an accident, injury, disease, skin conditions (acne) and from surgery. There are many factors that affect scarring: depth and size of the wound or cut, the location of the injury, your age, genes, gender and ethnicity.
Is A Scar More Than Skin Deep? Depending on the location and how it occurred, scars can embody the physical and emotional reminder of the event. For example, if you have a scar from a planned C-Section you may have a pleasant response when you see it. On the other hand, if you had an emergency C-Section to save your life or that of your baby, the trauma of that moment can be re-lived when seeing the scar. If you have acne scars and you were teased, the feelings and emotions surrounding the experience may be triggered each time you see the scarring. What Can Be Done About My Scar? Fortunately, there are various methods and techniques if you’re looking for non-invasive ways to help alleviate the physical pain and/or emotional response.
