seriousness of scars

Recommended Posts

i was just wondering- ive seen heaps of scars and they all look kinda different with different colours so i was wondering if the different colours mean anything in terms of the healing process and which scars tend to fade faster. So far the only ones i have seen are like red, brown and purpish colour. and im guessin the brown ones would take the longest...just curious to see.... :huh:

My scars that have been healed for about 2 years are now white-ish, a little lighter than my actual skin tone, but certainly nowhere near as noticeable as the red and purple scars that I have from recent acne.

I think the final healed stage of a scar is when it begins to 'silver' (ie: turn white) and when small, fine hairs begin to grow out of the scarred pores again.

i always thought the brown looking ones were the ones that had healed the most and the pinkey red ones were new..
