There are two main types of scars, hypertrophic and atrophic. The main differences are that hypertrophic scars are caused by excess collagen production following injury giving scars a raised, bumpy look. Atrophic scars on the other hand are caused by a loss of tissue beneath the skin surface that can’t be replaced. This gives the scar a sunken, dimple like appearance.
At Body Dezign House, we understand scars can differ greatly in size, age and colour so we’re proud to offer a variety of treatment options for scarring.
