About Scar Treatment
A scar is a patch of fibrous tissue (containing a protein called collagen) that is formed over a wound as a consequence of the body's natural healing process. Scars are classified into keloid scars, contracture scars, hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars based on the composition of collagen and appearance. Many non-invasive methods including chemical and physical treatment and invasive methods such as surgery are used to treat different types of scars.
