Scars

When the body suffers a trauma, an injury, accident or burn, the skin reacts by forming a scar. These markings can be either subtle, or quite noticeable, causing one to feel self-conscious and socially shut down.

Scars appear as discoloration, a raised or recessed surface, or an uneven skin texture. Sometimes scars may even interrupt the normal range of motion and cause discomfort. Bear in mind that while scars may be minimized and faded by surgery and other cosmetic treatments including laser therapy, they can never be completely eliminated.

Different types of scars

Surface blemishes

Some scars are minor and can be easily improved with cosmetic procedures. These types of scars include those from acne, as well as from surgical incisions. They do not challenge the functioning of the body, but rather are removed for aesthetic reasons. See Dr. Fisher for some of the most beautiful results from acne scar removal Beverly Hills clients depend on.

Keloid scars

These are large discolored areas that may sometimes itch, and may be raised. Keloid scars venture out beyond the borders of the trauma and tend to appear on the shoulders, neck and chest.

Hypertrophic scars

Here, in order to compensate for a wound, the body develops a series of raised lesions that are sometimes red and are often discolored, either darker or lighter than one’s natural skin color. Scarring is the result of collagen being overproduced.

Contracture scars

These types of scars result from burns, either from heat or from chemicals. Contracture scars should be immediately treated by a physician, as they can cause serious functional as well as cosmetic damage to the body.
