Hi,
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin (or other tissue) after injury. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g. after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring.
Scar tissue is not identical to the tissue which it replaces and is usually of inferior functional quality. For example, scars in the skin are less resistant to ultraviolet radiation, and sweat glands and hair follicles do not grow back within scar tissue.
Most skin scars are flat, pale and leave a trace of the original injury which caused them.
Surgery(scar revision),Laser surgery & resurfacing,Steroid injections are all available to help in scar removal.You would have to consult a cosmetic surgeon/dermatologist.
