keloid and hypertrophical

Scars are the unwanted remains of major medical procedures and resemble various injuries or illnesses. Although they are the result of healed skin and unfortunately cannot be completely removed. However, we can very successfully lighten and soften them so that they are as little visible as possible. For fresh scars, no older than 6 months, the correction result can be almost 100% - especially if you take good care of the scar, rub it with healing ointments, massage, avoid the sun, etc.

Both hypertrophic and keloid scars are characterized by excessive growth of scar tissue. Simply put, these types of scars tend to increase in size and protrude above the surface of the skin as they heal.

The most common locations where they appear are the chest, shoulders, arms, earlobes and cheeks. In addition to traditional injuries, the culprits of this type of scar are burns, as well as unprofessional piercing of the ears for earrings, as well as any other factors that prolong the healing time of the scar.

Difference between keloid and hypertrophic scar

A keloid usually does not appear immediately as part of the healing of the scar, but only at the moment when the wound as such is healed. The difference between a keloid and a hypertrophic scar is that the hypertrophic one rises above the surface of the skin, but in terms of skin area, the scar remains the same size. In contrast, a keloid grows into healthy tissue and the scar thus increases its area and also extends above the surface of the skin.
