When the skin is injured and there is a break in the body’s tissues, the body produces collagen to build up where the tissue has been damaged.

Skin wounds can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • injuries
  • surgery
  • burns and scalds

These are several different types of scars such as Keloid scars, Contracture scars, Hypertrophic scars and Acne scars.
