What are the 5 stages of wound healing?

Wound healing happens in five stages. The first stage is the wound occurring; the spasm of your muscle and elasticity of the skin can increase the size of the wound.

Next, during the hemostasis phase, blood clotting occurs to stop bleeding. This is followed by the inflammation phase, where damaged cells and bacteria are removed.

The proliferation phase is next when new tissue grows, and the final phase is maturation, where collagen is realigned along the wound, and excess cells are removed.
