What causes scar tissue buildup?

For example, a person that has to have Daily or weekly injections in the same spot... can scar tissue buildup there, in that spot? If so... how much time would it take or how many injections(average) would it take to happen? Thank you very much.

Scar Tissue Facts & Treatment: lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers

Scar tissue is created from trauma to the soft tissue. Repeated injections in the exact same spot could create scar tissue. It depends on the person's body and healing process. Lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers can all be used to improve a scar's appearance. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
