Types of scars
- Normal fine-line scars: A minor wound like a cut will usually heal to leave a raised line, which will gradually fade and flatten over time.
- Keloid scars: A thick elevated area that can grow beyond the scar line itself.
- Hypertrophic scars: A raised scar that remains within the boundary of the wound.
- Pitted or sunken scars: hollow indented impression in the skin. A common example of a pitted or sunken scar is the acne scar.
- Scar contractures: abnormal healing process resulting in pulling of the skin in surrounding areas which may restrict normal movement over joint eg. Fingers.
