TYPES OF SCARS

There are four types of scars.

Atrophic scars


This category of scars are characterized because of the loss of tissue. Such scars may appear depressed, serrated or flat on the surface of the upper layer of the skin. Many times, an atrophic scar has dark skin pigmentation than the rest of the skin. Acne scars and chickenpox scars are the best examples of atrophic scars.

Hypertrophic scars


These scars are categorized by the formation of extra tissues on the skin as it heals. Unlike a keloid scar, it does not outgrow the injured area. Hypertrophic scars are darker than the rest of the skin.

Keloid scars


These kinds of scars are the result of aggressive healing. When more tissues are produced, even during such times, keloid scars are formed. These scars are thick and fluffy in appearance. Keloid scars can outgrow the injured area.
