Acne scarring

Acne scarring is the result of inflammation from acne breakouts which damage the skin. The body’s response to this is to heal the blemishes which stimulate collagen production. If too much collagen is produced it can cause visible scarring. Scarring can also arise from picking the spots.

There are 3 types of acne scarring:

Rolling scars – these vary in depth and make the skin appear uneven and wavy.

Ice pick scars – these are very small, narrow indentations which give a pitted/punctured appearance to the surface of the skin.

Boxcar scars – these are round or oval craters in the skin, defined by their sharp edges.
