Hypertrophic scars and keloid scars are fibrous growths that grow on areas of the skin that have been injured. Hypertrophic scars appear just on the injured area. Keloid scars extend beyond the site of injury. Both types of scars can be unsightly and distressing to patients. The hypertrophic scar shown in the picture resulted after a shave biopsy. It is being injected.
