Keloid and Hypertrophic Scar: Aetiology and Management

26 October 2022


The incidence of hypertrophic scar (HS) and keloids formation after skin trauma is much higher in Asian population when compared to western people. There are more research studies focusing on management of HS, but not so much on keloids. Keloids would continue to grow and it will create lifelong burden to the survivors. Both invasive and non-invasive methods of intervention will be discussed. The rate of recurrence is still high for those with surgical excision, radiation and LASER. Conservative management including the use of pressure therapy and silicone gel sheet would be presented and their effects were also reported. Innovative design and application of pressure on keloid scar will also be elaborated.

After the lecture, the participants will be able to gain an understanding on:

  • Aetiology of wound healing and scar formation
  • Keloid and hypertrophic scar
  • Management of keloid scars
  • Conservative management of keloid scars
