New Tissue Formation: Scar Tissue
The price of wound repair is a scar, which appears reddish at first but as the connective tissue grows tauter and vascularization slows, it gradually looses color. Hair, sebaceous and sweat glands are also absent, as is the ridged pattern of the epidermis. Thus the new skin's appearance is unusually smooth.
