Acne Scarring

Acne Scarring

Scarring effects approximately 95% of acne sufferers to some degree depending on the grade experienced. The greater the inflammation of the acne, the more likely scarring is to occur. 

When acne breakouts penetrate the skin deeply, they damage the skin tissue beneath it. As the body repairs the damage, collagen is produced which gives the skin support. The type of scarring depends on the amount of collagen sent to repair the original scar.

To repair the damage done to the dermis the skin forms new collagen fibres.  More commonly acne causes atrophic scarring – depressed scars. However sometimes excess collagen is produced resulting in hypertrophic scarring.

Acne scars can take the following forms:

  • Ice pick scars – Very deep and narrow that extend into the dermis.
  • Boxcar scars – Round and oval depressions, pitted in appearance, with steeper edges.
  • Rolling scars – Wave like indentations. 
  • Hypertrophic or Keloid scars – Raised scars, due to an over production of collagen.
  • Erythema Acne scars – capillaries become damaged or permanently dilated.
