Every skin scar type feels uncomfortable and mars the look of the skin especially those of them that times time to wear off. Except you desire a bumpy and patchy skin, you will no doubt detest the appearance skin scar types on your body.

Obviously, you donít want to harbor any of the different skin scar types, because it makes you feel impaired, particularly if it appears on parts of your skin that are usually exposed.

To be able to choose the right treatment for your skin scar types, it helps to find out what type of skin scar it is. It is also significant to know that all skin scar types form in different ways, and thus, the treatment for every type of skin scar differs from one another.

This is why knowing what your scar is, how it forms and the treatment that is applicable for it is essential before you start to treat it. This helps your treatment to be effective and ensures that your scar gets healed faster.

Skin scars types and Different Treatments

There are many types of scars, and each one of them has a negative impact on the individual who has them. Scars are typically an agonizing memory of a bad experience that can affect an individualís self-esteem negatively. It is especially so if the scar is on the face or any other parts of the body that are very visible.

We have provided the different types of skin scars below and how each of them forms to inform your decision about choice of treatment to use to get rid of them.

Atrophic Scars

Atrophic skin scar types are scars that are depressed, serrated or flat against the upper layer of the skin. Occasionally such skin scar types are taken as hyperpigmentation. This is a skin condition where specific areas of skin result to darker pigmentation when placed side by side the rest parts of the skin.

Hyperpigmentation is a form of skin discoloration that normally fades eventually with time and suitable medication. As opposed to hyperpigmentation, atrophic skin scar types emerge due to damage done by the tissues.

Scar Contractures

Scar contractures are the skin scar types you get from being burnt. The burn mostly occurs around the joints and creases. Scar contractures make the affected part of the skin tighter and may affect the mobility and flexibility of the individual.

These skin scar types can make your skin appear disfigured and spoilt. If the contracture skin scar type is deep, then it may as well affect the normal functioning of the muscles and nerves.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are other skin scar types that occur mainly to individuals who have witnessed intense weight loss and teenagers. It as well occurs frequently in obese people and pregnant women.

The skin tears, especially on the buttocks, thighs and breast areas when the individual adds weight or loses weight too fast. When they first emerge, stretch marks appear reddish or purplish in color, but eventually, they become lighter or silvery color.

Keloid skin scar types

Keloid skin scar types emerge when the skin passes through a destructive healing phase. This normally results in a clustered and chunky scar that looks darker than the surrounding skin.

Keloids emerge due to injuries, especially when the body secretes surplus collagen on the affected area, even when the wound itself has healed and closed.

Put in simpler words, keloid scars develop when the healing stage of a wound has gone more than necessary and when the body has carried out the entire essential repair ahead of the damage.

It is vital to be aware that in a lot of instances, the extent of healing as well affects the association of the part of the skin affected. Keloids are also frequently seen on the skin of individuals who have dark skin.

Keloids can easily be treated through surgery. They can as well be eliminated by applying silicone sheets and steroid injections. Insignificant keloids are frequently treated with the use of liquid nitrogen by applying it on the affected area to help it to fade faster.

Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic skin scar types are not depressed; instead, they are elevated and raised on the exterior part of the skin. In comparison to atrophic scars that results due to tissue loss, hypertrophic skin scar types emerge due to too much tissue that grows over skin openings as a result of infections or wounds.

Hypertrophic scars look similar to keloid scars in their features and look; nevertheless, they only develop on the parts of the skin that are injured. Related to keloids, hypertrophic scars can be treated with silicone sheets and steroids.
