Aesthetic Dermatology Acne Scars & Depressed Scar

Banish acne scars at Da Vinci Medical Clinics

If acne is particularly severe or if left untreated for too long, the spots and pustules can leave scars on the skin. Acne scars are the typical marks left behind that affect the texture of your skin following an outbreak of acne.

Acne scars can present in a number of ways. You may find that they take on the appearance of pockmarks on the skin, or simply small patches of discolouration. Acne scars are caused by the surface of the skin being disrupted when a spot or pimple has burst and caused significant damage.

Picking or squeezing the acne can further contribute to the appearance of acne scars as this aggravates the area and can cause unintended permanent harm to the delicate structure of the skin. In severe cases of acne scarring, the skin can be described as taking on a ‘rolling texture’ which can be difficult to conceal or treat. This is when large areas of the skin have been compromised and created a profound uneven texture.

Acne scarring may improve over time. However, if untreated it is unlikely it will completely correct itself.

Types of acne scars

  • Typical deep acne scars: deep valley-like pits, sometimes also called ‘ice pick’ acne scars.
  • Raised acne scars: these affect people prone to developing keloid scars.
  • Rolling acne scars: these produce an undulating, wavy texture to the skin.
  • Box scars: these are like typical deep acne scars but have vertical rather than sloping walls, making them very obvious.
