all about acne scars
Acne scars are marks left behind after the acne itself has gone away. Defective collagen formation present in the deeper skin layer causes them to appear on your skin. It’s common to have acne scars.
In fact, with age, they become more noticeable and some of them can even become permanent if not treated on time. However unwelcomed they may be, acne scars are part of the skin's normal healing process.
how to identify acne scars?
- Depressed scars, also known as ice pick scars, can be shallow or deep.
- Shallow ones can give the skin a typical wave-like appearance making it look old and loose. The deeper ones can be more deforming making the skin appear pitted.
