Scars are the result of the biological process of the body repairing a wound – often after an injury. The body produces extra collagen which helps the area to heal, though often leaves a thick, fibrous tissue in place of the normal skin surface which presents as a scar.
Scarring can occur through acne, accidents, illness or surgery and your life can be seriously affected, particularly when the scars are on the face. Most people have a scar or stretch marks somewhere, which may fade over time, but some feel self-conscious and would like to lessen the visibility of the area.
Stretch marks (Striae) are a form of scarring on the skin, often with an ‘off-colour hue’ Over time they may diminish, but will not disappear completely. They are often formed from the stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes, but may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, or hormone replacement therapy. The result is the tearing of the dermis – the resilient middle tissue layer that helps the skin retain its shape.
