We’ve all seen scars and most of us have some. Scars are a pain. They can be the result of injury, acne, or even surgery. And often people with prominent scars have decreased confidence, a poor self-image, and a constant reminder of negative past experiences. To help get reduce a scar we must consider all the different types and treatments. The best treatment for your scar may depend on its size, location, and persistence.
