A scar can form on the skin’s surface from improper healing. There are several types of scars including: keloid scars, contracture scars, hypertrophic scars and acne scars.

Keloid Scars

Keloids scars are reddish or purple, caused by over-active healing process and results in overproduction of collagen at the site of the wound. They extend beyond the original wound. They maybe inflamed, itchy and painful, especially during their growth phrase. They are often raised above the skin, most likely to appear on the chest, upper arms and shoulders, upper back and on the ear lobes.

Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic scars are similar to keloids but do not go beyond the boundary of the wound.

Contracture Scars

Contracture scars are caused by the loss of large area of skin due to burns or other injury. These scars tighten skin, which can lead to restriction in movement. They may also go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves.
