The normal process is that a certain scar would usually fade away after several months, but it will never totally go away. For this reason, people have been finding different scar treatments available to get back the scar-free skin that they used to have.
A person can actually get scarred through different means, it can be from an injury, an accident or any form of trauma. There are also several known types of scar. Some of them are the following: facial scars which are usually caused by skin disease like acne, burn which can come from a chemical, hot substance or if the person got caught in a fire itself, hypertrophic which pertains to a scar that bulges out forming a mass which is the same size as the original wound, and keloid scar which is almost the same as a hypertrophic scar when it comes to its appearance but the difference is that its size grows bigger than the original wound where it came from.
