Scars can be caused by many things, such as injury or surgery, and they are always permanent. Scars in prominent and highly visible areas can be problematic and can undermine your self-confidence. For those who are concerned with scarring, there are scar revision procedures.

Scars come in a few different varieties, which are determined by their look, texture and the source of the scarring. For example, there are keloid and hypertrophic scars. Both types tend to be thick and red, but the difference with keloid scars is that they are often itchier clusters that expand past the edges of the cut or incision.
