Acne and Other Scars

The formation of a scar is a natural part of the healing process, following an injury to the skin as the body repairs the wound. The appearance of the scar after the area has healed depends on several factors, including the type of injury, the area of the body affected and the healing process itself.

The type of injury is a significant determining factor for the formation of a scar. Large incisions from surgical procedures or injuries from serious accidents are understandably more likely to result in the formation of a scar, then minor cuts or scrapes to the skin.

Some areas of the human body, such as the skin over the knee and elbow joints, are more likely to be affected by scarring.

Phases of Wound Healing

It is important to understand the wound healing process when considering how to prevent the formation of scars. There are six
significant phases of wound healing:

Hemostatic inflammatory phase involves the coagulation cascade, complement cascade and platelet activation to stop the flow of blood
out of the body. The Cellular inflammatory phase involves an increase in the number of neutrophils in the area, which contribute to the phagocytosis of
debris and bacteria to prevent infection. This is followed by an increase of macrophages, which secrete mediators to regulate the healing process. An increase in fibroblasts occurs several weeks after the injury, resulting in collagen secretion and closure of large wounds.

The Re-epithelialization proliferative phase involves remodelling of the wound with the aid of enzymes and fibroblasts. The level of moisture in the area limits the rate of this phase.

The Neovascularization proliferative phase involves angiogenesis and the formation of granulation tissue. The Collagen deposition proliferative phase involves the deposit of type III collagen. The Maturation or remodelling phase involves the deposit of type I collagen, which leads to a reduction in the size of the scar and increased strength of the skin.
