Acne scar treatment depends on the type of acne present. Ice-pick, rolling scars, boxcar etc are depressed or atrophic scars that are caused when there is no production of collagen during skin healing. Raised or keloidal scar are hypertrophic scars that are caused when there is excessive production of collagen during skin healing. So basically, the different forms of acne are-

  • Rolling scars
  • Boxcar scars
  • Keloidal scars
  • Ice-pick scars

Acne scars are different in texture and colour than the surrounding skin. They are caused when the infection caused by acne infects the deeper layers of skin, causing inflammation. Even when the pimple disappears, the skin is not able to heal which leads to pits or depressed scars on the skin. Some scars might be caused due to injuries or burns while the most common reason for scars on face is acne. They steal the skin’s appeal and often lead to inflammation. There can be different ways in which the acne hampers your skin- the extent of acne scars requires much-needed treatment.
