What are Acne Scars?

Acne scars and pores are the facial skin texture’s worst nightmare. Uneven skin texture causes the skin to look dull and unattractive. Thus, it can make a person feel self-conscious and reclusive, due to fear of judgement based on physical appearance.

Acne causes both acne scars and acne marks.

Acne scars are permanent skin textural changes on the skin due to moderate to severe acne. Generally, they are indentations on the skin that appear in different forms. Such as, when a person picks or ruptures cystic acne on the skin, acne scars may occur. These scars are usually permanent.

Acne marks, on the other hand, are reddish or brownish skin discolouration due to acne. These are known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or erythema. These marks usually fade with time even without treatment.

Types of Acne Scars

A acne scars are categorized into 5 different types:

  1. Atrophic scars – mostly near to the surface.
  2. Boxcar acne scars – broad, squarish depressions with steep, clear edges.
  3. Ice Pick acne scars – deep and narrow rather than broad depressions.
  4. Rolling acne scars -broad depressions with sloping, rounded edges.
  5. Hypertrophic scars – raised and bumpy scars.

Some acne scars elevate on the face, such as elevated hypertrophic scars and keloid acne scars.

Acne Scars Treatment Side Effects and Risks

If there is insufficient sun protection and diligent skincare maintenance following an acne scar laser treatment, it may result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Therefore, it is important to follow post-laser advice.

Skin infection is uncommon, hence, anti-infection medication may be prescribed to avoid such complications. 

If there is post-treatment downtime, it is mainly due to redness, swelling, or bruising. These will normally go away on their own in a few days. a

Hard to Treat Acne Scars

Some acne scars may be more difficult to improve than conventional scars. A variety of treatments may be utilised to treat these scars for such circumstances. Our doctor will assess the severity of your acne scars and propose the best treatment options for you. 

Every individual’s skin responds to every treatment differently. And every one’s scars are unique in their own ways. Therefore, there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to acne scar treatment. Treatment is always personalised and tailored to each individual after assessment by our doctor.
