Why is my skin scarred from a few pimples?
For teenage and adult women and men alike, the effects of acne can linger long after active blemishes have cleared. Acne lesions penetrate deep into the epidermis, often damaging tissues underneath.
Two main types of scars form as the body attempts to repair itself by producing collagen: hypertrophic scars are the result of excess collagen, and atrophic scars form from a lack of collagen production.
Types of acne scars:
- Jagged, “wave-length”
- Hypertrophic (raised)
- Atrophic (depressed)
- Tiny hole “ice pick”
- Discolored marks
