How scars form

 

A scar normally consists of tissue produced in the wound during repair: a process of new cells and blood vessels forming while older ones wither and break down.

 

Damage to the skin causes a wound. As it is a fragile process the more severe the injury the more complicated the healing.

 

The wound begins to heal. If the wound is deep, the body will lay down a protein called collagen to repair the damage.

 

In some cases too much collagen is laid down and the wound becomes permanently red or raised. These are the scars that Cica-Care* is medically proven to treat.
