The two major categories of acne scarring are Atrophic and Hypertrophic.


Atrophic scars are flat, shallow depressions that heal below the top layer of skin. These scars are commonly caused by severe cystic acne. However, other types of acne can cause them as well. The appearance of atrophic acne scars can vary depending on a person’s history with acne. There are three types of atrophic scars:

  • Boxcar scars

  • Ice pick scars

  • Rolling scars 

Hypertrophic, or keloid, scarring is a result of too much collagen produced during the healing process. This causes lesions of scar tissue that appear raised off the skin.


At Minty pearls we offer a number of different treatments which can reduce the scaring significantly.

Scars

Acne scarring can sometimes develop as a complication of acne. Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring, but it's more common when the most serious types of spots (nodules and cysts) burst and damage nearby skin.
