Acne is a very common condition, which can be hard living with. Acne is characterized by the presence of blackheads and whiteheads (known as comedones), and in more severe cases there is inflammation with pustules and cysts.
Harsh acne breakouts can also leave your skin with unattractive scars. In most cases, this condition starts at adolescence due to the changes in hormone levels but it can also be experienced by all age groups, including the elderly. It can range from a few spots on the face, neck, back or chest which most teenagers will experience at some point, to a more significant problem that can result in acne scarring. There isn’t a single cause of acne; instead there are several factors that can come into play when it comes to determining why an individual is suffering from acne.
Scars are the areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. All scarring is composed of the same collagen as the tissue it has replaced, but the composition of the scar tissue, compared to the normal tissue, is different.
Common types of scarring seen in the skin are
An Atrophic scar is an indented scar that is flat with shallow depressions that heal below the normal layer of skin tissue. Atrophic scars form when the skin is unable to regenerate tissue and are more often caused due to severe acne or chickenpox.
Ice pick scars are smaller and are more narrow resembling deep pores that point down into the skin’s surface. These scars are common on the cheeks and are tough to treat and often require persistent, aggressive treatment.
Rolling scars have a varying depth, with sloping edges that don’t have distinct edges. It is usually found on the cheeks and also makes the skin appear wavy and uneven.
Boxcar scars are broad looks like chickenpox scars and are usually box-like depressions with sharply defined edges. Boxcar scars are caused by acne, chickenpox, a virus causing a red, itchy rash with blisters. These scars most often form on areas like lower cheeks, Jaw and on the skin which is relatively thick.
These occur when the body overproduces collagen which results in a thickened or raised scar compared to the surrounding skin. Keloid scars are hypertrophic scars that grow larger and outside of the original wound area. They can be caused by surgery, accident, acne, or even body piercings.
These scars can be itchy or even painful. Treatment is available for both hypertrophic and keloid scars. Treating a scar will improve its appearance and decrease associated symptoms such as itching or pain. There is no one best treatment for all scars. Treatments for hypertrophic and keloid scars include topical agents like silicone sheeting applied to a scar, injections of a small amount of dilute corticosteroid into a scar, and laser treatments performed on a scar.

Our highly trained dermatologist will be able to diagnose the specific type you are suffering from to provide the most suitable treatment.
