Scarring: basic information and treatments

Video Summary

Hi, my name is Natasha with Scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process. When the deep layers of skin are damaged, your body creates new collagen to heal the wound.  This collagen forms with a different color and texture than the surrounding skin, resulting in scar tissue.

Most scars are flat and pale while others are raised and darkened. Raised scars are known as hypertrophic or keloid scars, which form when the body produces too much collagen, leaving an uneven appearance. Additionally, too much sun exposure can darken a newly formed scar.

Other scars have a sunken appearance when the skin loses its supporting structures. Some acne scars and surgical scars take this form.

Although some scars are unavoidable, there are several products that can help minimize and prevent them.

A scar treatment gel helps minimize the color, texture and appearance of newer scars. Some of these products even work on existing marks.

A full-coverage foundation can also conceal stubborn scars and create a more even skin tone.
