Acne scars are depressions (pits) or elevations in the skin that are left behind once acne lesion is cleared.
They are classified into four types based on their appearance and cause:
ice pick (tiny pits), boxcar (scars with sharp edges), rolling (scars with sloping edges), and hypertrophic (elevated and bumpy caused by excessive scar tissue).
All atrophic acne scars form as a result of loss of tissue after damage to the skin due to inflammatory acne.
During acne formation, oil is trapped in skin pores which leads to inflammation causing damage to underlying and surrounding skin. Once the supporting deeper layer of skin is damaged surface of skin sinks in and forms a depressed or atrophic scar.
After this damage to skin, during the healing process if the scar tissue repair is uncontrolled then it forms excessive tissue leading to elevated bumpy scars called hypertrophic scars.
Mostly severe acne leads to scars but some patients with genetic tendency to develop scars, can get them even with mild acne.
Proper treatment in the early course of acne can minimize the formation of scars by decreasing inflammation.
Squeezing or popping acne can drive infected material deeper into the skin, thereby increasing the chances of scarring so avoid fiddling with your acne.
Treatment of acne scars is challenging. It requires expertise on dermatologist’s side and patience on patient’s side. It is an individualized approach depending on type of scars, its depth and duration, type of skin and its colour.
While it is possible to improve appearance of scars to a level that they are not easily visible and are merged into surrounding skin but you cannot completely remove a scar (Except for very small scars which can be surgically excised).
Improving scar depth, reducing surface irregularities and dyspigmentation and merging the scar tissue with surrounding normal skin is the primary goal of any scar treatment.
What are the Acne Scar Treatment Options?
Several skin creams seem to work on acne scars by bleaching the areas of discoloration, however, they do not work on depth of scars effectively.
