Scarring Q & A

What is scarring?

Scarring is the lasting evidence of injuries or damage to your skin. After a wound, your skin builds up scar tissue to repair the damaged area as part of the healing process. This scar tissue is made primarily of collagen and is thick and firm. 

Some scars are small and fade away with time. Deep, thick, or large scars can persist for the rest of your life. The team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers several treatment options for scars to lighten discoloration, break down scar tissue, and even out your skin’s texture. 

During a consultation appointment, the team examines your scar or scars. The form of treatment they use depends on the size, type, and location of the scar, as well as its age. 

What are some common types of scarring?

There are multiple types of scars that can appear on your skin. The team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center specializes in treating:`

Acne scars

Acne scars are divots in the skin that remain after inflammation from an acne breakout damages your skin. You increase your likelihood of getting lasting acne scars if you pick or pop your pimples and blemishes. They’re usually a type of atrophic scar, which is indented into the skin. 

Keloid scars

Keloid scars are overgrowths of scar tissue raised above your skin’s surface level. They’re often shiny and firm, but they vary in size. These are a type of hypertrophic scar, which are raised and may get smaller with time.
