Scars are areas of tissue that have replaced normal skin after it is damaged. Scarring is a natural part of the healing process, however, often the composition of the new collagen that forms is different and, therefore, of inferior quality than the surrounding undamaged tissue. Hypertrophic scars occur when the body overproduces collagen, causing the scar to be raised. Keloids are a form of excessive scarring and are more common in dark sinned people. Atrophic scars look sunken or pitted in appearance, often associated with acne, other disease states, surgery or accidents. Stretch marks are just another form of scarring.
