What are acne scars?

Acne scars after an acne breakout are commonly found on the face, chest and back.

Acne scars are not to be confused with acne marks, which are flat marks and brown or red in colour. These are often easier to fade with topical creams and can even go away naturally after a period of time. Acne scars, on the other hand, can sometimes lead to skin irregularities as they are either raised or indented and often considered permanent on the skin.

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars happen as a result of your body responding to repairing the acne. If too much collagen is produced during the repair process, this will cause raised acne scars. If the scarring is caused by a loss of tissue, this will cause your skin to have permanent pits or indentations.

Acne itself is an inflammatory condition and scar development correlates to the extent and duration of your skin inflammation. If you delay acne treatment for too long, your risk of acne scarring is much higher.
