There are three major types of scars that may result from burn injury:
:result from an excessively aggressive healing process, resulting in scar tissue overgrowth. In keloid scars, the scar tissue extends beyond the borders of the injury. These scars may be pink or red and will fade over time to a dark tan color.
:skin that has been burned, particularly over a joint, may result in scarred tissue that is tight and inflexible, impairing movement of the joint. Contractures may affect underlying structures, such as nerves and muscles
