Most acne scars are usually self-inflicted when trying to squeeze the pimples when they breakout. When our skin begins the healing process to repair the inflammation caused by the acne, the natural process of skin repair may be affected by bacteria which causes insufficient skin resurfacing. This may lead to scarring of the skin which may be depressed or raised scars
Acne scars are usually not so noticeable at a younger age but they start to rear their ugly head as we age and our skin loses collagen. The good news is that acne scars can be treated.
However, before treatment can start you first have to get rid of any current acne since new breakouts can lead to new acne scars.
Scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it. It is important to know what type of scars they are as each type responds to treatments differently.
Acne scars are broadly classified into categories: Atrophic and Hypertrophic scars
Atrophic scars are most commonly found on the face and sit below the surrounding skin which is formed when not enough collagen is produced while the wound is healing.
There are three types of atrophic scars:
Boxcar – These are wide, U-shaped scars that have sharp edges. They can be shallow or deep. The shallower they are, the better they respond to skin resurfacing treatments.
Ice pick – Ice pick scars are narrow, V-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin. They can look like small round or oval holes, like a chickenpox scar. These are the most difficult scars to treat because they can extend far under the surface of the skin.
Rolling – These are wide depressions that typically have rounded edges and an irregular, rolling appearance.
Hypertrophic or Raised scars
These scars are most common with chest and back acne. They stand above the surface of the surrounding skin and are caused by too much collagen during healing.
Atrophic or depressed acne scars can be treated by Goken Aesthetics 4D Scar Reconstructive Surgery. Hypertrophic scars like Keloids can be treated with a combination of corticosteroid shots and laser therapy.
