Prosthetic Guides — Skin & Wound Care
Posted by Bryan Potok on
They're often thought of as unsightly imperfections, but scars are actually an incredible example of the body's ability to repair itself. Scars don't form after shallow cuts or scrapes, but deep cuts into the dermis layer of the skin (the middle layer) trigger a process called cicatrisation, the creation of fibrous scar tissue from the newly formed granular tissue. Your body needs three to six weeks to repair a deep cut, which it does by producing a protein called collagen at the site of the wound.
