Our skin has patterns, after getting hurt the skin tries to regenerate that pattern. Deep wounds which are left unhealed especially in a small age, become part of skin pattern. Hence, the natural regeneration or products that boost natural regeneration doesn't work in such cases. But cosmetic surgeries can help in this matter.
