Scars and Skincare

A scar is a patch of skin that develops over an injury as part of our skin’s natural healing process. When a wound occurs, fibrous tissue replaces the normal tissue in the skin and thus it appears as a scar. There are many types of scars, each determined by the depth of the wound and tissue response towards the inflammation of skin.

  • Hypertrophic scars - tend to become thick, raised, red appear swollen and take longer time to heal.

 

  • Keloid scars - tend to develop more prominently in the upper chest, neck and facial region. Individual with darker pigment tends to be at higher risk for developing keloids.

Depressed scars - resulting from loss of tissues or collagen:

 

  • Ice pick scars - they are narrow, sharp, small scars with a jagged edge and steep sides; it makes the skin appear as it has been punctured with an ice pick. They may look like large open pores on face, often found on the cheeks.

 

  • Rolling scars - a wave-lie appearance on the skin surface due to their wide and shallow depth.

 

  • Boxcar scars (or fibrotic scars) - they are round to oval depressions that have sharp vertical edges, usually on the temples or cheeks, it is similar to chickenpox scars.
