Is fat freezing for me?

A minor wound, like a cut, will usually heal to leave a raised line. They will gradually fade and flatten over time; however, the scar will not disappear completely, and you'll be left with a visible mark or line.
This type of scar keeps growing, even after the wound has healed. It is due to the overgrowth of tissue when too much collagen is produced at the site of a wound.
These scars are the result of excess collagen being produced at the site of a wound.
Some scars caused by skin conditions, such as acne, can have a sunken appearance.
Scar contractures are often caused by burns. They happen when the skin "shrinks", leading to tightness and a restriction in movement.
Acne causes pitted scars and skin discolouration's.
When you injure your skin, a scar is part of how your skin heals. If the dermis layer of your skin is affected by an injury, your body will produce a protein called collagen in order to rebuild the part of the skin that was damaged. This collagen, which is fibrous, causes the scar to form.
Scars look and feel different from the tissue that surrounds them, but the way they look depends on many different factors, including the type of injury and where it is located. Age, sex, and ethnicity also impact the appearance of scars.
Many scars will fade without treatment. Keloids and depressed (sunken) acne scars, however, won’t fade. As you age, depressed acne scars tend to become more noticeable as your skin loses its firmness.
Treatment can help fade scars more quickly. If you have a keloid or depressed acne scar, treatment can make it less noticeable.
