Types of Scars
Hypotrophic Scars are caused by excessive tissue layer deterioration and when cell replacement production does not function as normal.
Keloid Scars are excessively thick and fibrous, tumour-like scars which extend beyond the wound’s original limits. It is a more serious form of scarring because keloid scars can continue to grow indefinitely into a large, tumorous growth.
Hypertrophic Scarsare excess formation of new tissue, but do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound. These are often less itchy than keloid scars.
Surgery Marks can fade if healed properly immediately after operations, despite being difficult to avoid.
