What Is A Scarring Injury?
Scars are marks left on the skin from wounds after they’ve healed. They are commonly caused by burns, cuts, scrapes and punctures to the skin. In some cases, scars can be painful, and cause problems with movement, and limb function. Scars are also commonly related to non-physical issues like social phobias, lowered self-esteem and depression.
