Scars can result from injury, from disease or from surgery and form a permanent mark in the skin.  Some scars heal and fade very well (usually over about 9 to 12 months) but others may be obvious because they are wide, badly orientated, discoloured and/or thickened.

Sometimes laser treatment may be tried, whilst surgical scar revision by scar removal and painstaking repair is the best approach in some cases.  In addition professional advice on cosmetic camouflage can also be very helpful.
