What are Acne Scars?
Acne scars are marks or depressions left on the skin from acne. These scars occur when skin tissue is damaged due to an inflamed pimple or cyst. Acne scars can be split into 2 categories:
|Atrophic, Depressed Scarring|
|Ice Pick Scars||This type of scar resembles an ice pick tool. The hole is wide at the surface and narrows to a point within the skin. Ice pick scars are more common on the forehead and upper cheeks, where the skin is thinner.|
|Rolling Scars||This type of scar has indents that cause the skin to look uneven and wavy. Rolling scars are mainly found on the lower cheeks and jaw, where the skin is thicker.|
|Boxcar Scars||Boxcar scars are indents with sharper edges. This type penetrates deep into the skin and is found on the lower cheeks/jawbone.|
|Keloid Scars||Keloids are lesions of scar tissue that rise off the skin. Fibrous tissues, like collagen, overgrow and cause a bumpy appearance. This type of scar is found on the chest, back, shoulders and jawline|
