Dealing with acne in your youth can be frustrating but the scars it leaves behind can be a real problem to treat. Acne scars result from damage to the skin following repeated inflammation from acne cysts. Pimple popping can make the process worse, but acne can cause scarring even without pimple popping.
The depth of the resulting lesion determines the severity of the scar with deeper lesions causing a more pronounced scar. We can broadly classify the different types of acne scars as the following:
1. Ice – pick scars: deep, narrow and pitted scars
2. Rolling scars: broad depressions with a sloping edge
3. Boxcar scars: broad depressions with sharply defined edges
4. Atrophic scars: flat, thin scars or depressed scars
What treatment you need will depend on the type of acne scar you have.
