What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne Scars are a consequence to trauma to the skin, and acne scars are no exception. When acne clears, your body starts healing the skin where you had the breakout.

Acne scars are more likely to develop when you:

  • Have Cystic Acne - infections that goes deep into your skin, usually a pus-filled acne cyst (pimple) or nodule. Besides, these types of acne cause intense inflammation in the skin, which results acne scars.
  • Either pick, pop, squeeze, or scratch acne areas. Furthermore, trying to get rid of acne this way can increase inflammation, leading to acne scars.

In general, the deeper the acne goes into your skin, the more likely it is to cause a scar. However, some people develop acne scars when Blackheads or Whiteheads clear.

What Are The Types Of Acne Scars?

Icepick Scars (< 2mm)

Typically, narrow and deep pit holes measuring up to 2mm visible on the skin surface. They often appear on the cheeks area and also resemble a “freckle” appearance.

Boxcar Scars (> 1-4mm)

These scars have a relatively wider cross-section. They are oval or round depression with distinct edges that somewhat resemble scars left by chicken pox. They often appear on cheeks and temples.

Rolling Scars (> 4-5mm)

Their appearance resembles wider depressions on the skin with less well defined edges. The depressions tend to be broad and shallow, and they occur primarily on the cheeks and jawline.

Raised (Hypertophic) Scars 

The result of hyper or excessive tissue generation is a hypertrophic/ enlarge scar. These scars are thick and shaped as raised bumps on the skin surface. The raised scars form as a result of the skin’s over healing response to injury. The condition is mostly visible in body areas present with taut skin after suffering trauma such as burns or surgery.
