Why Do Scars Form?
Scars can occur due to a variety of circumstances including accidents, skin conditions like acne, surgical scarring, or as a result of certain diseases.
When recovering from an injury, your skin cells produce collagen at a faster than normal rate to repair the wound. This results in a scar, which is an area of skin that is typically thicker and not as flexible as the surrounding skin.
The appearances of scars vary depending on location, cause, how your body heals, your natural skin tone. Scars may be flat, raised (also called a keloid scar), or depressed. They can also vary in size, texture, and color.
If you have a scar on your face or body that you want to reduce, there are non-surgical treatment options available. At Foley Vision Center, we offer some of the most advanced technology in the field of aesthetics.
