The human body is a wonderful, remarkable thing. When your skin is injured, regardless by accident or from surgery, the body works hard to mend the wound which eventually forms scars. In a way, scars are your body’s story. Pretty neat, in the grand scheme of things – but, coming to terms with a scar, especially ones that resulted from a traumatic event, can be very hard.  

The truth is a scar will never completely go away, but there are amazing solutions to help reduce the size and appearance, such as Hiruscar Scar Care range! 

While scars from more severe injuries might be harder to mask, minor cuts and scrapes can become less noticeable with proper treatment. The absolute first step to caring for your scars is to understand the different types of scarring there are. 

Know Your Scars  

#1 Keloid Scars 

These scars are enlarged, raised scars that can develop after very minor skin damage. From acne spots to piercings, these scars spread beyond the original area of skin damage.  

#2 Contracture Scars 

These scars are the result of a contractile wound-healing process occurring in a scar that has already been re-epithelised and adequately healed – or in English, it happens when burn scars matures, thickens, and tightens. 

#3 Hypertrophic Scars  

A hypertrophic scar is a thick, raised scar that’s an abnormal response to wound healing. This occurs more commonly in taut skin areas following skin trauma, burns, or surgical incisions.  

#4 Acne Scars 

Oh, spots. A rather infamous type of scarring, acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.
