Acne scars are the most unpleasant reminders of acne, past and present. They are much more difficult to treat than acne and are caused by the modular and cystic acne as they heal over a long period of time and with the formation of scar tissue. Acne scars can be raised (hypertrophic) or depressed (atrophic) and the latter can be described as the ice pick scars, box scars, and rolling scars. Ice-pick scarring looks like very small holes in the skin but they are difficult to treat because they are quite deep. Box scars are elongated or oval and look like tears in the skin but are shallower or saucer-shaped. Rolling scars give an undulating wavy appearance. Whatever the form, acne scars are associated with a lot of emotional trauma and loss of confidence in young people and it should be the primary concern of a doctor treating acne to prevent scarring as far as possible and in the event of scars, to treat them aggressively. Acne spots are the flat, brownish marks left behind by moderate acne.
Basic Information About Acne & Acne Scar Treatments
Acne is the most common skin problem that affects over 70% of teenagers and young adults. A recent study has revealed that near about two-thirds of adolescents having acne desired to consult with their specialist about their skin condition, however only one-third really did. If you suffer from acne, you may end up with acne scars. Scars though undesirable, are part the natural skin healing process. Normally, skin-deep wounds heal without scarring. It is when the structure of the skin is harmed that the scarring occurs. The best method to treat scars is to prevent them from treating acne early. Old scars can also be effectively treated with laser resurfacing with Fraxel and skin micro-needling treatments such as derma rollers.
