Acne Scars Acne Scars appear after healing of the acne. Initially the skin becomes red and then turns dark. Our exclusive treatment protocol focuses on rebuilding the skin as well as removing the scars and skin discoloration. Acne scars are caused by the inflamed blemishes due to puffed-up skin pores, filled with dead skin cells, excess oil, and bacteria.
These pores swell up causing a break in the follicle wall, which leaves behind various types of scars.
- Ice-pick scars – these are deep, narrow, pitted scars.
- Rolling scars – broad depressions with a sloping edge.
- Boxcar scars – broad depressions with sharply defined edges.
- Atrophic scars – flat, thin scars or depressed scars (anetoderma)
