Not Scared of Scars

Our bodies react to cuts, scrapes, burns, and acne by producing collagen – a substance that gives the skin support as it heals. The amount of collagen your body produces throughout the healing process matters: too little can lead to depressions or “pits,” while too much can lead to raised scars.

Severe acne can leave behind pigmentation and scarring on the face, chest, and back. Acne scarring may present as icepick scars (which appear as deep, narrow, pitted scars), rolling scars (which appear as broad depressions that have a sloping edge), boxcar scars (which appear as broad depressions that are characterized by sharply defined borders), and atrophic scars (which appear as flat, thin scarring or depressed scars).
