Keloid & Hypertrophic Scars

The keloid & hypertrophic scars are usually thick, raised; awkward accumulation of the collagen at a particular site presents the discoloration of the skin, hardened, and rope like protrusions, which is caused by the skin injury. The keloid scar appears due to the abrupt formation of the tissue that causes the itchy, massive and much larger wound than the original and common wound.

Formation of Keloids & Hypertrophic Scars

After the injury or surgical procedure, the wound takes their healing time to correct and for that collagen production and they’re breaking down is important. The imbalanced nature of the collagen production and they’re breaking down during the healing process, more collagen is produced than is degraded causes the spreading of scar or remain raised and become either a keloid or a hypertrophic scar. It is good to treat the keloid and hypertrophic scars during the healing process to get over the scar problem effectively.

How the Keloid and Hypertrophic scars are differentiated

Both the Keloid and hypertrophic scars have excessive collagen and the differentiation between them are a bit confusing. Both the scars have different nature in terms of presenting the scars as the keloid scars, signs are appeared over a year, whereas the hypertrophic scar forms soon after the skin injury. The tissue structure is also in different shape and size in both the scars as the keloid scars affect the nearby healthy tissue while the hypertrophic scars remain contained in the affected space-edges of the skin.

In the case of hypertrophic scar, As wounds heal, scar tissue forms, which at first is often red and somewhat prominent. Over several months, a scar usually becomes flat and pale. If there is a lot of tension on a healing wound, the healing area is rather thicker than usual. This is known as a hypertrophic scar.


Hypertrophic scars generally settle in time, but keloids may prove resistant to treatment. The following measures are helpful.

Dressings should be worn for 12 to 24 hours per day, for at least 8 to 12 weeks, and perhaps for much longer.
