Introduction

Deep Acne Scars are irregular skin depressions or indentations that occur after moderate to severe acne breakouts. Some acne sufferers are more prone than others to have excessive scarring. Acne scars can carry the stigma of adolescent acne long after the acne is gone, and this can form embarrassment, anxiety or depression.

Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, and often continues into adulthood. Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the dermis brought on by acne breakouts. The wounds trying to heal themselves resulting excessive collagen in the one area create the acne scars.

Physical acne scars are often referred to as "icepick" scars. This is because the scars tend to cause an indentation in the skin's surface. The Ice pick scars are deep skin pits that are the most common and a classic sign of acne scarring. Other acne scars can be either boxcar scars, rolling scars, or hypertrophic scars.
