What causes acne scars?
Acne scars occur when the acne infection goes deep into the skin. Papules, pustules, and cysts are the types of acne that are most likely to cause acne scars, and acne that reaches deep into the skin more often leads to scars.[/dt_sc_resizable][dt_sc_resizable first]Every type of scar, regardless of its cause, occurs during the skin’s healing process. While your acne is healing, your skin can produce too much collagen, which quickly builds up on the skin and result in a scar that appears to be raised. Acne scars can be as varied as acne itself. For example, atrophic scars, which appear to be dented into the skin, occur when there is a complete loss of tissue. This type of scarring is most common with cystic acne and can be the most difficult to cover up with makeup. Many types of acne scarring can be helped with our best laser for acne scars.
