What is acne scarring?


Even when the acne itself has gone it can leave behind scars, particularly in cases of severe acne where acne nodules and cysts have burst and damaged the tissues beneath the skin just like any wound. If the top layers of skin lower into the gap left by the cysts that were under the surface, the skin can look pitted, dimpled, and uneven.

The 3 main types of acne scars are:

  • boxcar scars which appear as oval or round depressions or craters in the skin
  • rolling scars which occur when scar tissue forms in bands under the skin creating a rolling and uneven appearance
  • ice pick scars which appear as small, deep holes in the skin’s surface

Acne scars can be frustrating and different types may respond better to different approaches, but treatments such as IPL acne treatments  and Dermapen skin rejuvenation treatments can really help with the appearance of acne scars and make them less noticeable.
