Keloids Scars

Keloids are the excess growth of scar tissue at the site of a healed skin injury. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, and can vary from pink to flesh-coloured or red to dark brown colour.

Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic Scars are cutaneous conditions characterized by deposits of excessive amounts of collagen which goes to a raised scar, but are confined to the wound borders and usually regress over time. Hypertrophic scars are more common than keloids. The treatments for keloids and hypertrophic scars are similar, but hypertrophic scars usually have a better response to treatments.
