What Cause Scars
Scar tissue exists to help protect wounds from additional physical damage and or infection. In fact, while many view scarring as an unsightly and frustrating part of life, the reality is that scars are a natural and beneficial aspect of the healing process. Scars can develop following any type of abrasion to the skin. While most scars form after a cut, scrape, or surgery, the bottom line is that a simple abrasion to the skin can result in a serious type of scar such as a Keloid. Keloid scars are considered to be a serious type of scar due to the fact that they can expand beyond the boundary of the original scar area. Thankfully, most types of scars including Keloids can be addressed using a variety of topical and affordable scar products to help lessen the look of the appearance of the scar.
