Acne scars can occur when acne spots occur and cause damage to the skin whereby the skin forms scar tissue which remains once healed. They can likewise be created if you pick or squeeze your acne spots.

There are 3 particular types of acne scarring, these being:

  • rolling scars which make the skins look unease and rolling due to bands of scar tissue that have assembled under the skin
  • ice pick scars which make the skin have a ruptured and punctured appearance caused by small holes in the dermis
  • boxcar scars which appear as round cavities in the skins surface.
