About scar tissue
Scars can be the result of anyinjury, damage to the skin, eg after burns, surgical operations, injuries and other incidents and accidents.

The scar tissue is much less elastic fibers, so there is a contraction, seal the place. The scar tissue absent sebaceous, sweat glands, hair bulbs - all this makes it different from normal skin. Scar tissue is less elastic and smooth, because there is much less water. When scar tissue is formed, when the process produces a lot of tiny blood vessels - which is why fresh scars are usually red. Gradually, the scar fades. He will remain lighter than the surrounding skin due to the absence in it of color pigments. Visibility and severity of the scar depends on many factors:
