Why do scars appear?
The scar is the end point of each and every wound healing. Wound healing is scar healing (cicatrisation) or defect healing, not tissue regeneration.
Prof Dr. Robert Hierner provides revolutionary approach to scar treatment Dubai. He treats scars of different levels or shapes.
Wound healing takes place in 4 phases: Bleeding/Inflammation/Proliferation/Remodeling. From a clinical point of view, the 4 phases of wound healing are divided into 2 phases of scar formation:
- Scar Genesis: Bleeding/Inflammation/Proliferation
- Scar Maturation: Remodeling
