Skin Injury


What is hyper and hypo pigmentation?

After a skin injury, the fibrous tissues break apart causing increased blood supply and collagen build-up. When the healing process is compromised by inflammation or bacteria, it can also affect the scar's appearance. The appearance of scars can vary dramatically depending on the client and injury. They can appear flat, raised or quite deep, while pigmentation can range dramatically.

Common Area Affected

This can affect any area of the body that is affected by trauma, injury, surgery, or other medical procedures.

Can Be Confused With:

• Basal cell carcinoma

• Complex sclerosing lesions

• Malignant tumors

Please Note: It is important to speak with your medical provider or dermatologist first regarding any bump, lesion, or other unknown issue on the skin to rule out more serious skin conditions.
