Scarring is the process by which wounds are repaired. Damage to the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis, is required to produce a scar. Damage to only the epidermis, the most superficial layer of skin, will not always produce a scar. Scars produce a structural change in the deeper layers of the skin which is perceived as an alteration in the architecture of the normal surface features. It is not just a change in skin color. Most of us have at least one scar on our skin, this can be lighter or darker in colour than our natural skin tone which only emphasises the problem and usually shows up much more on darker skin types. The scar may have been caused by injuries and disorders from burns and cuts, accidents, blemishes, marks or acne. There are now many effective treatments available to treat skin injury and disorders such as: keloid scars, contracture scars, hypertrophic scars, and acne.
