Scars

Whether the result of an injury, a surgery, or a childhood adventure gone wrong, scars are physical reminders of past incidents that can affect our present-day appearance and self-esteem.

What are Scars?

In response to trauma that causes a wound, the skin forms new collagen fibres to repair it. However, the skin sometimes produces too little or too much collagen, resulting in scarring. Some scarring can be prevented by properly caring for the wound and avoiding unprotected sun exposure, but often scars are an unavoidable reality.

Symptoms of Scars

Scars come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. They can also present in a variety of ways, including discolouration, hypertrophic scars (thick, raised scars that stick out above the skin), keloid scars (an overgrowth of scar tissue), and atrophic scars (pitted depressions in the skin, resembling deep pores).
Although scars may not completely disappear, there are safe and effective treatment options available at Skin Science Dermatology to significantly improve their appearance. A thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, a highly skilled dermatologist, will determine the scar removal treatment best suited to your unique condition.
