HOW THE SCAR IS FORMED?

In simple words, scars are the result of injuries of your skin. The skin is made of Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin and Hypodermis is the deepest layer of skin. Scars appear when the injury goes into Dermis or deeper. The dermis layer can be damaged by a cut( minor or big) or surgery or any injury. Skin initiates its self-healing process immediately after the damage happens. At first, the blood clot is formed by platelets to cover the area. The scab or clotted blood projects the area of the open damage and prevents further damage by bacteria, virus or other harmful objects. Then fibroblast cells start making collagen and elastin to make issues to replace the scab. The process is often very fast. Hence, in most cases, the cells do not get arranged in the right way like another part of your skin. So, an uneven assembling of collagen makes a scar. Too much scar can cause a raised scar or less amount of collagen may cause a dented scar.
