Types Of Scars

Ideal scarring is minimal and light, but scars can take a variety of forms.

Here are the different forms of scars:

Atrophic scars: These indented scars, as acne or chickenpox, happen when the skin can’t regenerate enough collagen to replace the original tissue.

Hypertrophic scars: These scars are thick, raised, and often reddish, appearing within the bounds of the original injury.

Keloid scars: Keloid scars are thick, raised scars that extend beyond the original injury; they’re created when the skin makes too much collagen in trying to repair itself. Some people are genetically predisposed to keloid scars, and they’re more common among Black people than other populations.
