Thanks for your query

Scars are nothing but fibrous tissue that replace the normal skin during the healing process to bridge the gap between the two wound ends.

If the skin structure is intact then the wound will heal without scarring. If it is the bite marks you are referring to then it will disappear without scarring

I hope I have answered your query, if there are no further queries please accept my answer

I wish you good health
