Acne scarring refers to the marks or indentations left on the skin after severe or prolonged acne breakouts.
When acne lesions, such as cysts or nodules, damage the deeper layers of the skin, the body’s natural healing process may lead to the formation of scars. Acne scars can manifest as depressions or raised areas on the skin’s surface, and their appearance can vary in texture and colour.
Types of acne scars include atrophic scars (indentations), hypertrophic scars (raised scars), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots).
Acne scarring can persist long after the acne has resolved and can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence.
The severity and extent of acne scarring can vary from person to person, depending on factors such as the type and intensity of acne, genetic predisposition, and individual healing capabilities. Acne scarring can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and quality of life.
