Acne, an incredibly common condition caused by inflammation of the skin’s oil-producing sebaceous glands, can frequently leave behind marks on one’s face years after it has passed. Scars develop when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it and not enough collagen is made while the wound is healing.


About acne scars

Atrophic scars are most common on the face. A depressed scar sits below the surrounding skin. There are three types of atrophic scars: Boxcar scars typically have well-defined sharp edges and are wider than they are deep. Icepick scars are pitted scars with narrow openings that resemble the pinpoint wounds that would be caused by an icepick. Rolling scars are wide scars with sloping, rolled edges.

Treatment options such as microneedling and laser stimulate collagen production in the skin resulting in scar depth reduction.
