What causes a Burn Scar or Keloid Scar?A burn is a type of injury to flesh caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, light, radiation or friction. Most burns affect only the skin (epidermal tissue and dermis). Managing burn injuries properly is important because they are common, painful and can result in disfiguring and disabling scarring, Burn scar contracture refers to the tightening of the skin after a second or third degree burn. When skin is burned, the surrounding skin begins to pull together, resulting in a contracture.
