This article reviews our understanding of the mechanisms involved in wound healing following injury. Models of preferential healing are described in the foetal skin, aged skin and the oral mucosa. The mechanisms underpinning the improved scarring observed in the oral mucosa are described and the role of resident fibroblasts, in mediating reduced scarring, is discussed.
