Acne Scars

Acne scars are the result of inflamed blemishes caused by acne that penetrate the skin deeply. When the skin is damaged by acne, the body tries to repair the damage by producing collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure. However, the repair process is not always perfect, and this can result in scars on the face.

There are several types of acne scars, including:

1. Atrophic scars: These are depressions or indentations in the skin caused by a loss of tissue. There are several types of atrophic scars, including ice pick scars, boxcar scars, and rolling scars.

2. Hypertrophic scars: These are raised scars that occur when the body produces too much collagen during the healing process.

3. Keloid scars: These are raised scars that extend beyond the boundaries of the original acne blemish and can be itchy or painful.
