the form of embarrassing acne scars that can detract from your overall appearance and feelings of
self-confidence. These scars can appear as deep indentations, scars that look like overly large pores and
This type of scar develops when your body produces too much scar tissue after an injury. This
overproduction forms a hard and lumpy growth that is larger than the original wound.
The skin often forms a contracture scar after a severe second- or third-degree burn. This type of scar
causes the skin to tighten and prevents it from moving with ease.
Stretch marks develop when your skin stretches faster than your body can produce collagen, resulting in
tiny tears. As these tears heal, the scars that develop are what we know as stretch marks. They most
commonly appear on the hips, thighs, tummy, breasts and buttocks.
These raised red scars look very similar to keloid scars. However, they are different in that they are not
larger than the original wound.
