Scars are the body’s natural response to injury. They occur when fibrous tissue develops during the healing process. When you experience an injury, your body sends collagen to repair the damage. This protein is essential for building and strengthening your body’s connective tissues. A scar can develop when you produce too much or too little collagen during the healing process.
There are two main types of scars:
These are depressed scars. An atrophic scar develops when your body produces too little collagen and the skin doesn’t regenerate enough tissue to fill in the depression. Ice pick, boxcar, and rolling scars are the most common types of atrophic scars.
Hypertrophic scars occur when your body produces too much collagen while healing, causing the scar to appear raised above the skin’s surface. These scars are often pigmented, appearing pink, purple, or tan in color.
New Elite Medical Clinic of California offers many types of scar treatment, including:
Laser treatments like Fraxel® use focused laser energy to strategically restore scarred areas of skin and produce new collagen — a protein essential for healing — to repair the damage.
Also called collagen induction therapy, this minimally invasive treatment creates microinjuries in the skin to encourage healing and stimulate collagen.
Dermal fillers can plump up depressed scars by restoring volume for a smoother texture.
Vitamin C, retinol, niacinamide, and alpha hydroxy acid are just a few ingredients in skin care products that can help resurface the skin and reduce scarring. New Elite Medical Clinic of California proudly carries medical-grade product lines, such as SkinCeuticals and SkinMedica®, to ensure every patient has access to the best skin care for scars.
While scarring can be inevitable after an injury or deep cystic acne breakout, there are steps you can take to minimize your risk, including:
