Scars are the result of your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Scars occur when the dermis, the second deepest layer of the skin, is damaged by injury, surgery, picking a scab, etc. When the skin is injured, it goes into immediate healing mode and starts trying to close up as quickly as possible. First a blood clot forms a scab and then the dermis gets to work below sending out fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen) to start rebuilding tissue. Because your skin is in a hurry to repair itself to replenish tissue, the collagen may not get laid out in the same pattern as the rest of your skin, so this hasty approach results in a scar. How severe or obvious a scar ends up looking can be determined by many factors like age, skin tone, location of injury, and hormones. Majority of scars are treatable with a variety of options that are offered at SouthPointe Medical & Aesthetics.
