A scar appears when the epithelial tissue is replaced by connective tissue.
Scars are the expression of the healing process that occurs in the dermis and epidermis after an injury, either after surgery or after trauma. When scarring is excessive, the scar becomes raised.
We divide over-elevated scars into two groups: keloids and simple hypertrophic ones. At the same time we have other types of scars such as punctiform depressed scars produced by sequelae of acne, chickenpox, etc., depressed scars produced by trauma or surgical acts, wide scars.
