Acne scarring refers to the changes in skin texture and tone after severe acne. It results in uneven skin texture and discolouration with pinkish-brown depressions and indentations throughout the skin surface.
Scars develop when acne breakouts penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and result in surrounding tissue damage. They can be exasperated by picking and popping pimples and scratching scabs.
Acne scarring can take many shapes and it is important to diagnose the type of scars a client has been left with to determine the most effective course of treatments. There are a few different types of scars to consider including boxcar scars, icepick scars, hypertrophic scars and rolling scars.
