Tissue repair or                 Wound Healing                 occurs in two major ways: by                regeneration                and by            fibrosis           . Regeneration replaces destroyed tissue with the        same        cells where fibrosis involves repair by           fibrous           connective tissue. It depends on type of tissue damaged and severity.
Tissue injury starts a series of events - there are      3      main ones.
The               capillaries              become permeable or thin to allow                     clotting proteins                    into the injured area which build a        clot       that holds wound together and keeps it clean.
Then               granulation               tissue forms - composed largely of new               capillaries               that grow into the area from undamaged blood vessels. These new vessels are           fragile           and bleed easily and contain              phagocytes             that dispose of the blood clot.
Lastly the surface              epithelium              regenerates and goes across the granulation tissue just below scab; scab falls off and there is a new area which is the        scar       .
