Bruises: The skin changes color slightly due to some kind of impact.
Hypertrophic: The skin may be slightly raised and dark, usually caused by an infection.
Stretch Marks: This is a type of scarring that comes from losing or picking up weight in very short periods of time.
Astrophic: This scar is a lot like stretch marks but is indented.
Keloidal: These are usually dark, elevated and large scars found on the back, chest and behind the ears, and are also called benign tumors.
Blemishes: These are caused by skin conditions or hormone problems.
