Why is scar tissue hard?



  1. 0 Votes

    Scars are made of connective fiber tissues that form over open cuts. These are intended to be a replacement for the skin. They have less blood flow and are typically flat and pale and not too hard. However, the body sometimes produces too much scar tissue, which raises it up and makes it hard.

    Scar tissue feels harder than other skin because it’s denser and receives less blood flow.  As it serves as a sort of ‘replacement skin’, it’s basically just a more primitive, basic skin and doesn’t have the nerve endings, hair growth and blood flow of normal skin.  Scar tissue is mostly made of collagen fibers.
