Acne is a common skin condition that affects almost 80% of adolescents. While most individuals recover from acne without any skin damage, some are left with pimple scars, acne marks, or permanent acne scars.

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars are formed as part of the body’s natural healing process, as it heals inflamed acne. Most acne scars are depressed scars that appear in three forms: Icepick scars, Boxcar scars and Rolling scars. The Icepick scars look like deep narrow holes and may extend deeper in the tissue. Other types of scars are Boxcar scars which are round depressions with steep sides that look like large pores. Finally, Rolling acne scars cause undulations that look like rolling waves. Another category of acne scars is raised scars that usually become less noticeable over time unless they develop as keloids that are thick and rubbery scars that can grow beyond their original borders.

Who suffers from acne scars?

Acne scars can form on any skin type and affect approximately 11% of the population. Family history and genetics play a significant role in a person’s susceptibility to scarring. In addition, those who suffer from severe acne have a higher chance of developing acne scars. Effective and early treatment of acne can significantly reduce the formation of scars. If scars are formed, it is generally best to treat them as soon as possible since the younger the scar the easier it is to treat and the better the results.
