Scars are a common part of life for many men, women, and children. Scar(s) can occur from many different causes, such as trauma or getting hurt, surgery, inflammatory conditions, and acne.
Scars are formed during the healing process, when the skin is injured, there are natural mechanisms that begin working to seal the skin to avoid any further damage and reduce the risk of infections. In the case of inflammatory conditions and acne, scarring occurs when there is so much inflammation and swelling, the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin is pushed into awkward positions. When the area heals, the collagen and elastin fibers remain in these awkward positions that leaves the skin with uneven texture.
The skin of a scar can also have a different color then the surrounding skin. Some scars can be red, purple, blue, and/or brown.
