    Abstract

    Hypertrophic scars are abnormal scars that are often raised above the normal skin surface. We imaged two hypertrophic scars in vivo and compared the results with those from the normal scars. Clear contrast was observed between the scars and healthy tissues. Furthermore, we found that the hypertrophic scars have a lower refractive index compared to the healthy skin, while the normal scars have a higher refractive index.
