Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids are a result of an abnormal growth of fibrous tissue due to imbalance of tissue regeneration processes during healing phase of a skin injury. Both appear raised above the surrounding skin surface level. Keloid and hypertrophic scars are similar in many ways, especially in early phases of their development. However, keloids extend beyond the borders of the original wound and do not usually disappear on their own; whereas hypertrophic scars are limited to the original wound site and may sometimes spontaneously regress with time. Skinlife in Vancouver offers various methods for treating Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids.
