What are
Acne Scars?

As acne heals, the body produces collagen which supports the skin’s recovery and function. When too much or not enough collagen is produced, a scar develops in place of the damaged skin.

Raised acne scars occur when too much collagen is produced during the healing process, creating more scar tissue. Depressed acne scars appear when not enough collagen is produced, creating a lack of tissue in the area of damaged skin.

Types of Acne Scars

Atrophic scars are flat, slightly indented scars. These are most likely to occur on the cheek or along the jawline.

Hypertrophic and keloid scars appear as raised scars, caused by the buildup of scar tissue. These types of scars often occur along the jawline, chest, back, and shoulders.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars can develop after prolonged or deep acne, or as a result of acne being touched, squeezed, or manipulated. This can cause skin damage which results in the body producing collagen. During this healing process, if too much or not enough collagen is produced, acne scars develop.  

How to Prevent Acne Scarring

If acne is prolonged, takes place deep within the skin, or is touched or manipulated, skin damage could occur; this damage can lead to acne scarring. Acne scarring can be prevented by:

  • Using appropriate skin care products and personal hygiene
  • Laundering pillowcases and sheets often
  • Washing makeup applicators with antimicrobial soap
  • Not touching acne, especially on the face which has skin that is more sensitive
