What are Acne Scars?
Breakouts come and go but the scars they leave behind can last for years. Acne scars are the remains of inflamed pimples and these blemishes occur when the pore becomes engorged with a “mixture” of excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. This mixture stresses the inside of the pore and can cause a break in the follicle wall. When this happens, it damages healthy tissue and can leave a scar.
There are different types of scars: Ice Pick Scars are small depressions in the skin, Boxcar Scars tend to be larger with sharper edges and hyperpigmentation scars (or darkening of the skin) are common types of acne scars. To repair the damage, the skin needs to form new collagen and remodel the skin.
