Shadows

Recommended Posts

Ok when I look forward or slightly down my scars don't look too bad, but if you catch a shadow in them while looking down they look so much deeper, now is this the shadows playing tricks on my eyes, or is this a true indication of how deep they are?

Your scars are a certain depth and will always remain that depth, unless you undertake certain treatments or naturally age.

Lighting can change the look of scars dramatically. Overhead lighting or lighting from below or even flourscent lighting makes scars look a lot worse than they would normally. Its all about how bright the lights are and the shadows they cast. Brighter lights and lights that cast more shadows will make everyones scars look worse.

If you're keen to read more about lighting, just do a search. I'm sure you will find lots of info.

Ok thanks for the answer, well I've got an appointment with Dr. Chu on the 12th of August and as a 19 yr old, I'm hoping that I might be able to pretty much get rid of them.
