Healing is a process that happens in the body. Through healing, cells are able to repair damaged tissue. There are two different ways healing can happen:

  • The damaged tissue is replaced with tissue of the same kind. This is called regeneration.
  • The damaged tissue is replaced with scar tissue. This is called repair

Most healing processes combine both ways of healing.
