Acne Scars unfortunately are a reminder for Acne sufferers of their past skin conditions.
What are the types of Acne Scars?
- Macular scarring is characterised by flat areas of increased and decreased pigmentation as a result of acne. Although there are no indentations in the skin or raised scars, this is nevertheless considered as a scar by many patients who have this problem.
- Boxcar scars are superficial punched out scars that have sharp vertical edges on cross section, and can be round or oval shaped when seen from above.
- Rolling scars appear as undulations in the skin and are usually caused by tethering of the skin to underlying structures Deep divots these are simply very deep scars that involve loss of subcutaneous tissue volume and result in a large divot.
- Ice-pick scars are deep but small holes in the skin, similar to the indentation left by an ice-pick.
- Hypertrophic scarring is where the scars boarders have grown wider than the original lesion Keloid scars is where the size of the scar is significantly raised, red/purple, and disproportionate to the size of the initial trauma caused by the acne.
