Abstract

A scar is an undesirable outcome of wound healing. Whenever tissue is injured by trauma, inflammation or surgery, various cells and mediators get activated and try to repair this wound. When only the epidermal layer of the skin is injured, it heals with mild or no scar. When the dermal layer is injured, the tissues cannot reproduce back the initial, pre-injury structure, leading to reorganization of fibrous tissue resulting in scar formation [1, 2].
