How a Wound Heals Itself & How do Scars Form? [Science Videos]

Two highly interesting videos from Ted Ed explaining how wounds heal themselves (above) and in direct relation to the first video, how scars form as a result of these wounds (below.)

Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, with a surface area of about 20 square feet in adults. When we are cut or wounded, our skin begins to repair itself through a complex, well-coordinated process. Sarthak Sinha takes us past the epidermis and into the dermis to investigate this regenerative response.
