What Is Acne Scarring And How To Treat It?
Who is most likely to experience acne scarring? Because the formation of scars is a common part of the skin’s natural healing process, it follows that anyone who experiences acne is likely to play host to acne scarring. However, numerous factors can increase this risk. These include, but are not limited to, delayed (or inadequate) treatment of acne, genetics and the picking or squeezing of more severe spots, such as nodules and cysts.
What are the types of acne scars? Acne scars can either be hypertrophic (characterised by an excess of tissue) or atrophic (which develop as a result of lost tissue). Hypertrophic scars are well known for appearing on the back, chest and shoulders, with the face typically hosting several varieties of atrophic scars. The most recognised variants of atrophic scar are known as rolling, ice pick and boxcar scars and, as these can be easily differentiated, they will normally benefit from different sorts of treatment.
