Many people are troubled by raised scarring. Usually a preceeding event has occurred causing inflammation with the skin such as a bite or acne or burn or trauma which has triggered the skin to to increased collagen fibers within that area. The collagen that is made is often thick and stubborn.

Scars such as these require careful management under a skin specialist as you do not want to cause further injury with certain treatments which could potentially make the areas worse.
