ACNE SCARRINGS


Acne scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it. Acne scarring’s treatments require patience and Paramedical Beauty Clinic team will partner with you on the journey to relieve your skin of scars and put forward your best skin with our tailored treatment programs.


 


THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACNE SCARS

Depressed acne scars (Atrophic)

 

Depressed or pitted acne scars are the most common. A depressed scar sits below the surrounding skin. Depressed scars are formed when not enough collagen is made while the wound is healing.

There are three main types of scar that this form of acne leaves behind:

BOXCAR

These are wide, U-shaped scars that have sharp edges. They can be shallow or deep. The shallower they are, the better they respond to skin resurfacing treatments.

ICE PICK

These are narrow, V-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin. They can look like small round or oval holes, like a chickenpox scar. These are the most difficult scars to treat because they can extend far under the surface of the skin.

ROLLINGS

These are wide depressions that typically have rounded edges and an irregular, rolling appearance.

 

Raised acne scars

These scars are most common with back and chest acne. They stand above the surface of the surrounding skin and are caused by too much collagen during healing.

There are two main types of raised acne scars:

Keloid scars

Keloid scars are formed when scar tissue forms on the skin in excess, as a result of excess collagen production. This process begins when acne fails to run through a healing cycle and the skin is broken. Collagen gathers around the damage and builds it up, to help the wound seal over. Keloid scars are common in people with dark skin.

Hypertrophic

Hypertrophic scars are firm, raised scars that grow above the surface of the skin. Hypertrophic scars caused by acne are most often found on the torso, and are more common after a deep wound or trauma
