Everybody loves to flaunt bright and clear skin which is free of blemishes, spots, and other skin conditions. However, more often than not, we seldom get a chance to fulfill this wish and end up with damaged skin! One of these skin conditions is nasty looking scars which are the bane of our existence. Let’s find out what these scars are.

What Is A Scar?

For most of us, a scar is a mark on our skin which is left after an injury. While this is true, scars can form from pimples and acne anywhere on the body.

How Do You Get Scars?

The most common way a scar develops is after an injury as it is a part of your healing process. An acne breakout can also leave you with scars. A scar is not just a mark or a cut on your skin, and there are different types of scars that one can develop such as keloid scars, acne scars, hypertrophic scars, contracture scars, etc. The size and depth of your scar depend on the area of the skin, depth of the wound/acne/pimple, age, gender, and genes.

Do Scars Fade ? 

Yes, some scars can fade away without treatment while some do not. For example, mild acne scars, dark spots, brown or red scars, pigmentation blemishes, etc., can fade away over a period of three to six months but in severe cases such as indented acne scars, keloid scars, burn scars, surgical incision scars, etc., you will need medication and other cosmetic treatments. Your skin tone, age, complexion, skin type, etc., also play a role in determining whether these scars can fade away on their own.

Which Body Areas Are Prone To Scars?

Depending upon the cause, a scar can develop on any part of your body. However, the most common areas are the face, chest, back, hands, and legs

Are Scars Treatable?

Yes, scars are treatable with the help of medications as well as cosmetic treatments.
