What cause Acne Scars
Acne scars are caused by inflammatory acne lesions, such as papules (pink raised bumps), pustules (pink bumps with white pus), or cysts. There are several factors that contribute to the risk of developing scars. First, it may be genetic: if you have family members who have acne scars, you’re at a higher risk of developing them too. Your skin type also affects the types of scarring.
Second, people with lighter complexions may be more prone to acne erythema (persistent redness) after inflammatory acne, while those with darker complexion patients may be more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) or brown blemishing.
WHAT TYPE OF SCARRING DO YOU HAVE?
There are four different types of acne scars one can get: ice pick, rolling, boxcar and hypertrophic. Our skin experts diagnose what type of scar you’re dealing with, it chooses the most effective treatment to get rid of those scars.
Ice pick acne scars are small, narrow, pinpoint acne scars that penetrate deep into the skin, according to Gross. They develop when infected cystic acne makes its way to the surface and destroys the skin tissue, leaving a cylindrical, column-like scar.
Rolling scars have a wave-like appearance and are wide and shallow in depth. These develop when the tissue develops between the epidermis and hypodermis, the innermost layer of skin, and they band together to create this rolling appearance.
Boxcar scars have angular, well-defined edges. When an inflammatory breakout destroys collagen, it results in a loss of tissue and the skin is left with depressed areas.
Hypertrophic scars are raised scars. He says these are caused when the skin doesn’t realize that the wound has healed and overproduces collagen.
