When a person sustains a wound from trauma or injury, an intricate and dynamic wound-healing process is triggered. The phenomenon of wound healing is represented by four distinct stages: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and maturation. Each successive phase is characterized by vital biochemical processes necessary for the well-being of an individual and the regeneration of cellular structures. If a wound is detrimental enough, blood clotting and tissue regeneration will culminate in a scar. Each scar is a tangible reminder of the cascade of events that promote wound healing and tissue repair.
