There are different types of scars or marks acne can leave behind including
- Depressed scars
- Raised scars
- And dark spots
Each scar type has its unique characteristics, requiring different treatment plans.
Depressed scars, or atrophic scars, are most commonly found on the face and sit below the surrounding skin. These scars are formed due to a lack of collagen when the acne is healing and there are three types boxcar, icepick, and rolling.
Raised, or hypertrophic scars, are most commonly found on the chest or back and are above the surface of the surrounding skin. These scars form from having too much collagen during the healing process.
Dark spots are discoloration of purple, red, or brown left behind after a zit or acne. These marks are not a scar and will fade for a few months on their own.
There are many different treatment options out there for acne scars. Every scar is unique and may require more than a simple at-home treatment. Some in-office procedures with a dermatologist can help, including in-office minor surgery. One needs to see a dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment as well as to address the underlying cause of the acne itself when there are recurring breakouts; the fewer breakouts there are, the less likely you will develop acne scars.
Most scars are permanent, but a dermatologist can help you find the best course of action and treatment to help reduce the appearance of your scars.
