Hypertrophic & Keloid Scars

They Itch,
and They Might Grow

Scars come in many shapes and sizes, resulting from wound repair anywhere on your body. Now having a scar isn’t bad if it’s small or located at an easy-to-hide area. But when it causes emotional distress, you may wonder about ways to treat them. Although they can look similar, hypertrophic scars and keloids are not the same.
Hypertrophic scars can be itchy, red, raised initially, and thickened. However, it remains within the boundaries of the original wound and gradually becomes flatter or paler. Unlike a keloid scar, it will itch and keeps growing, even after the wound has healed.
If you don’t like how these two scars look or feel, don’t hesitate to consult our experienced doctors for the best possible solution.
