what causes scar tissue?
Does scar tissue form simply from the injection, or is the whole injestion process what causes it?

Scar tissue is formed after excessive injections into one area. Which is why we say to rotate injection sites to prevent the build up of scar tissue. When u inject u make a tiny hole which begins to heal, think of it as a scab on a cut, now if you let that scab heal it eventually falls off on its own and you are left without a scar. But if you're like me and enjoy picking at them, it does not heal properly and you and left with a scar.

so it is just the small area that was punctured that forms scar tissue, and as long as you don't inject into that same spot, you should be alright? What I am wondering is, if I inject in say a 4" imaginary box on my thighs, and rotate legs, how long it would take to build scar tissue using a 1" 25 guage needle.

and is scar tissue permanent?

Yes scar tissue is permanent but will fade and slowly shrink like the rest of you as u age. Rarely does it go away.

scare tissue is like a callous on the muscle,youll know its there when you need to push alot harder to get through it,youll feel it.
25g pins are good but eventually with any size it gonna be there.

Is scar tissue something that I'm going to have to worry about forming quickly? Or does it form from years of use? ie...I'm in a 6 week cycle with ed injections. If i rotate sites(thighs and shoulders), will i have to worry about scar tissue?
