How to use "Cicatrix" in context?

Cicatrix, medically known as Burnt Scar or Scar, is a thin, red line that may persist and be faintly visible, 6 to 12 months after a skin injury occurs. Cicatrix is the result of skin healing, the process of repairing damaged tissue. The skin re-establishes contact with the underlying muscle, and new blood and lymph vessels form, which results in the thin, red line. Cicatrix may become pale and thin, but it never disappears completely.
