Scarring is a natural part of the healing process after an injury. Its appearance and its treatment depend on multiple factors. The depth and size of the wound or cut and the location of the injury matter. So do your age, genes,sex, and ethnicity.

THESE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF SCAR INCLUDING:

KELOID SCARS

These scars are the result of an overly aggressive healing process. They extend beyond the original injury. Over time, a keloid scar may hamper movement. Treatments include steroid injection intralesionally to reduce the inflammation along with laser therapy to resurface the skin. Keloid scars are most common among people with dark skin.

CONTRACTURE SCARS

If your skin has been burned, you may have a contracture scar. These scars tighten skin, which can impair your ability to move. Contracture scars may also go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves.

HYPERTROPHIC SCARS

These are raised, red scars that are similar to keloids but do not go beyond the boundary of the injury. Treatments include injections of steroid to reduce inflammation or fractional CO2 laser therapy to resurface the skin , which flatten the scar.

Acne scars. If it is severe acne, you probably have the scars to prove it. There are many types of acne scars, ranging from deep pits to scars that are angular or wavelike in appearance. Treatment options depend on the types of acne scars you have, either retinoid, chemical peel, laser therapy or even in combination therapy for  a better outcome.
