TYPES OF ACNE SCARS

Acne scarring need not necessarily be of one type. The more severe scarring on the skin is usually known as an ‘ice pick’. These scars are jagged and shallow or deep like ice pick stabs. They occur as a result of deep tissue loss from deep, nodular acne.

Follicular Macular Atrophy
They are small, soft and white lesions which look like tiny whiteheads just under the surface of your skin. They tend to appear on your chest and back.

Atrophic Macules
These are soft and sometimes wrinkled and can also turn blue in appearance because of blood vessels which lie directly under the scar.

Soft scars
They have sloping or rolling edges that seem to merge
with your normal skin. They are most often circular, linear or small.

Depressed Fibrotic scars
These scars are steep, large and sharp. Ice pick scars over time can also develop to be depressed fibrotic scars.
