A scar is a mark left on the skin when a wound or an injury to the surface of the skin has healed.

While there’s many different types of scars, they largely fall into two distinct groups: keloid scars and hypertrophic scars. You can find out more about each type below – but despite their differences, they’re similar in one important way: KELO-COTE®’s advanced formula silicone treatment is clinically-proven to work on both of them.

Keloid Scars

Caused by an excess of scar tissue produced at the site of the wound where the scar grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound, even after the wound has healed. They are often raised and itchy.

scar-hypertrophic-scars-desktop scar-hypertrophic-scars-mobile

Hypertrophic Scars

Starting as red, raised scars they become flatter and paler over the course of several years. Unlike keloid scars, hypertrophic scars don’t extend beyond the boundary of the original wound, but they may continue to thicken for up to six months.
