Any burn, injury or trauma such as surgeries can cause a scar on the skin. Scarring is a natural healing process, which occurs after an injury. Its appearance and treatment depends on multiple factors such as the depth and size of the wound or the cut. It also depends upon the location of the wound, age, sex and genes.

There are various types of scars such as keloid scars, contracture scars, acne scars, and hypertrophic scars. Keloid scars are formed due to over aggressive healing process. They usually extend beyond their original location of the injury. Treatment of keloid scars include surgery, steroid injections, silicone sheets, and others.

Contracture scars occur after the skin is burnt. This scar tightens the skin, which impairs the moving ability of the person in that part of the skin. Furthermore, these scars harm muscles and nerves of the injured part. Hypertrophic scars are raised red scars and treatment of these scars include injection of steroids or silicone sheets.
