The skin is the biggest organ of the human being and has many functions. Therefore, the healing of a skin wound displays an extraordinary mechanism of cascading cellular functions which is unique in nature. As healing and regeneration processes take place in all parts of the human body, this review focuses on the healing processes of the skin and highlights the classical wound healing phases. While regeneration describes the specific substitution of the tissue, i.e. the superficial epidermis…

Toward understanding scarless skin wound healing and pathological scarring
TLDR
The central mechanisms and processes in excessive scarring and acute wound healing, which can lead to the formation of keloids or hypertrophic scars, the two types of fibrotic scars caused by burns or other traumas resulting in significant functional or aesthetic disadvantages are summarized.
Healing Mechanisms in Cutaneous Wounds: Tipping the Balance.

TLDR
Important components of regenerative healing, such as stem cells, growth factors, and decellularized dermal matrices, are all being evaluated to recapitulate more closely the natural regenerateative healing process.
Narrative review of the mechanism of natural products and scar formation in wound repair
TLDR
This article reviews the mechanism of natural products and some compound drugs in healing skin wounds from the following aspects: related cellular effects during wound repair and scar formation, regulation of growth factors, extracellular matrix (ECM), and collagen metabolism.
Growth and remodelling for profound circular wounds in skin
TLDR
This work wants to study wound healing from the viewpoint of skin biomechanics, integrating the particular layered geometry of the skin, and the role of the neighbouring wound epidermis, and discusses the occurrence of an irregular wound geometry generated by stresses.
Collagen in Wound Healing
TLDR
The significance of collagen in different biological processes relevant to wound healing are reviewed and a summary of the current literature on the use of collagen-based products in wound care is provided.
A systematic review on wound healing and its promising medicinal plants
TLDR
This systematic review aims to explain the physiology of the wound healing process, different cellular, and molecular aspects, and to provide insight into the various plants that have possible wound healing properties that could be valuable in healing practice.
Mechanisms of Collective Cell Migration in Wound Healing: Physiology and Disease
TLDR
Parts of mechanisms of wound healing, collective cell migration, and the factors affecting wound healing are described, which would help design and develop better therapeutics for the same and help in improvement of health.
Skin wound healing modulation by macrophages.
TLDR
This review summarises the knowledge on what are the Wound Associated Macrophages, and how they interact with the other cell types to control the reepithelisation, angiogenesis and the extracellular matrix remodelling, and believes this knowledge may open new avenues for therapeutic intervention on skin wounds.
Skin Wound Healing Process and New Emerging Technologies for Skin Wound Care and Regeneration
TLDR
This comprehensive review focuses on the progress in wound medication and how it has evolved over the years, and advanced treatment strategies for skin regeneration and experimental techniques for cellular engineering and skin tissue engineering are addressed.
Wound Healing Problems in the Mouth
TLDR
The present review provides a basic overview of the wound healing process and with a discussion of the local and general factors that play roles in achieving efficient would healing.

Inflammation and wound healing: the role of the macrophage
TLDR
The macrophage continues to be an attractive therapeutic target, both to reduce fibrosis and scarring, and to improve healing of chronic wounds, as a result of advances in the understanding of this multifunctional cell.
Exploring the role of stem cells in cutaneous wound healing
TLDR
A critical synthesis of the current understanding of the role of stem cells in normal cutaneous wound healing is presented and current strategies, future applications, and limitations of stem cell-based or stem cell‐targeted therapy in the management of acute and chronic skin wounds are delineated.
Mechanisms of pathological scarring: Role of myofibroblasts and current developments
TLDR
The origins of myofibroblasts and their role in normal and pathological skin wound healing are reviewed, and the same mechanisms apply in other physiological and pathological settings.
Regulation of wound healing by growth factors and cytokines.
TLDR
This review summarizes the results of expression studies that have been performed in rodents, pigs, and humans to localize growth factors and their receptors in skin wounds and reports on genetic studies addressing the functions of endogenous growth factors in the wound repair process.
Endogenous inflammatory response to dermal wound healing in the fetal and adult mouse
TLDR
The E16 mouse fetus can mount an inflammatory response to wounding, which differs from that of the adult in the numbers of inflammatory cells recruited to the wound and the subpopulations of activated cells found at the wound site.
Inflammation in wound repair: molecular and cellular mechanisms.
TLDR
Cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling inflammation in cutaneous tissue repair are reviewed and a rationale for targeting the inflammatory phase in order to modulate the outcome of the healing response is provided.
Wound Healing--Aiming for Perfect Skin Regeneration
TLDR
Details of how these signals control wound cell activities are beginning to emerge, and studies of healing in embryos have begun to show how the normal adult repair process might be readjusted to make it less like patching up and more like regeneration.
Wound Repair and Regeneration
TLDR
A thorough review of the first five issues of Wound Repair and Regeneration confirms the perception that the editors' intent to facilitate "production of a greater progress towards the understanding of the process of wound healing" is well achieved.

TLDR
Scar-improving drugs could have widespread benefits and prevent complications in several tissues, e.g. prevention of blindness after scarring due to eye injury, facilitation of neuronal reconnections in the central and peripheral nervous system by the elimination of glial scarring, restitution of normal gut and reproductive function by prevents strictures and adhesions after injury to the gastrointestinal or reproductive systems, and restoration of locomotor function by preventing scarring in tendons and ligaments.
