Atrophic scars are usually superficially visible in the skin. An atrophic scar occurs when the normal healing process is disturbed. Insufficient new skin material is then produced. These scars therefore have a very thin layer of scar tissue.
Hypertrophic scars are usually red and thickened. They lie, or so to speak, on your skin. These types of scars can be itchy or painful. The scar is smaller than the wound.
Keloid scars are actually special hypertrophic scars. The scar is often thick, dark-coloured and larger than the original injury. People with coloured skin have an increased risk of developing keloid scars.

The aim of scar massage is to stimulate circulation. This improves the elasticity of the scar. This makes the skin more supple and reduces complaints such as movement limitations and pain. In order to intensify the scar treatment, endermotherapy is used at Huidzorg West.
Once the wounds have healed, you can use silicone plasters or silicone cream as a precaution. With the use of silicone plasters and silicone gel, scars can soften and flatten within weeks to months. In addition, its use reduces redness, pain and itching.
Scar treatments are reimbursed from the supplementary insurance. Depending on your health insurance conditions, you may be reimbursed for this. Check the policy conditions to see if the treatment is (partly) reimbursed.
