QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How do raised scars form?
When your skin is injured, scar tissue forms to fill the gap. This happens by your body naturally producing collagen, which is a strong protein that reconnects your broken skin. Collagenase is your body's natural scar inhibitor.
When your body does not produce enough collagenase during its normal healing process, the result is the formation of raised scars and keloids.
