Scarring is an important part of the body’s healing process. But when healing is complete and scar tissue remains, that scarring becomes a burden. Whether sunken, raised, or flat and discolored, scars mar your skin and detract from your appearance. If you’re ready to get attention off your scars, non-invasive cosmetic treatments can make a significant difference. Make your scar less noticeable and yourself more confident.
The skin goes through a series of natural processes to heal damaged tissue. Most wounds result in some degree of scarring, with minor wounds forming scars so small and light that they’re not noticeable. Scars may be a byproduct of diseases, injuries, skin conditions like acne, or surgeries.
When the dermis (the thickest layer of your skin) is damaged, the body forms collagen fibers to heal the area. Those fibers are thick and differently textured from surrounding skin, and they emerge as a scar after the wound has healed. Scars can be flat and pale, raised (keloid scars), or sunken and pitted (acne scars, or any scarring that occurs when underlying, supportive skin structures are lost). Stretch marks are also a form of scarring.
Some treatments are better for raised scars, and others for sunken scars. Receive a complexion analysis to learn more about which might be most effective for your scarring.
