Scarring

Scarring
Scarring is often caused by a past injury, trauma or surgical procedure. Scar tissue can build up to create a textured and discoloured site on the skin which is more often unwanted. You can experience acne scarring, stretch marks or scars from healing from broken skin.

Treatments for Scarring

Scars can appear anywhere on the body that has experienced skin breaking. They may look red, pink or purple and have a raised texture.

The healing process forms scars after trauma to the skin. The skin may be broken due to an accident or injury, or surgical intervention. When the skin is injured, fibrous scar tissue builds up to protect and repair the damaged skin.

Depending on the scar, its appearance can be reduced at Bodyvie with laser technology or injections to restore skin texture.

SYMPTOMS of Scarring

The symptoms of scarring can be a build-up of scar tissue which can be red or purple and have a texture which may feel like a lump. Some scars may become flat over time.

CAUSES of Scarring

  • The cause of scars is trauma to the skin.
  • Caused by an accident or surgical incision which opens the skin.

Prevention of Scarring

Scars can be difficult to prevent, as many are caused by surgery or accidental trauma. You can avoid high-risk activities to avoid skin breaking. It is also recommended not to pick acne spots to prevent acne scarring.
