Millions of people all across the globe deal with acne on a regular basis. It can be caused by a variety of things, but there is one constant when it comes to going through a breakout: It can be incredibly annoying and frustrating, especially if you try to take good care of your skin.
But, what happens after a breakout can be even more frustrating. Many people with severe acne also experience scarring, which can lead to lasting marks on the face.
The good news? Acne scar treatments are available and it can help to restore the beauty of your skin.
There are different types of acne scars that can get left behind after years of breakouts. They tend to fall into two different categories: Depressed scars and raised scars.
Depressed (or atrophic) acne scars are the most common on the face and they sit just below the surface of the skin that surrounds them, making them look like pockmarks.
If you used to have a lot of back acne, you might have more raised (hypertrophic) scarring, in which the scars actually protrude above the skin due to too much collagen formation during the healing process.
Both types of acne scars can be unsightly. But, scar treatment is possible for both.
