- exudation phase
- heavy exudation
- activation of blood clotting, wound cleansing and defence against infections
- destroyed tissue and pathogens are removed (phagocytosis)
- granulation phase
- granulation tissue forms
- fibroblasts migrate to the wound
- collagen synthesis starts
- capillaries sprout in the wound bed
- exudation decreases
- epithelialization phase
- further differentiation between tissue and epithelialization
- epithelial tissue growing in from the margins gradually covers the wound
- lastly, wound contraction and scarring
