When our body gets injured, it always needs to do something fast to protect itself. Acne infection is also projected in our body as some type of injury that needs immediate repair. Whenever our body senses acne, it sends white blood cells and other molecules to fight the infection and attempt to repair the infected area. If the damage is too big, the body will not be able to repair the skin properly and it will leave a scar as a sign of repair. Scars will usually stay on the skin forever, but today there are some things you can do to improve the appearance of the scars. Let’s take a look at the different types of acne scars and then we will discuss the different options on how to get rid of acne scars so that your skin will look smooth again.

Types of acne scars

Before we mention the different types of scars, keep in mind that everyone has distinctive tendency of scar formation.  While some people will develop very few scars, others may get much deeper scars for the same type of acne.  There are two categories of scars – scars caused by lost tissue and scars caused by increased tissue formation.

Depressed scars: These scars can consist of different types  such as ice-pick scars, depressed fibrotic scars, soft scars and macular.  When the cyst extends with pus, bacteria, oil and dead skin cells, it ruptures and attacks the dermis.  Then, white blood cells are sent quickly to protect the dermis.  This rupture can create loss of collagen and then elevate to recess or depression.  The outer surface of the skin is left unsupported due to the loss of tissue underneath it and a saucer shaped or jagged ice pick scar is formed.  Ice pick scars develop mostly on the face.

Keloids scars: These scars will form in a reverse fashion for some people.  When their body loses too much collagen, the body starts triggering fibroblasts that produce excessive collagen and then form scar tissues called keloids.  Keloids are more commonly found on male torsos.  Another type of increased tissue formation scar is known as hypertrophic scar.  Hypertrophy means overgrowth.

Acne Scar Treatments

There are several different types of acne scar treatments that can be performed by your dermatologist, depending on the type of scar that you have. Before proceeding for scar treatment, your doctor will discuss your feelings about the scars with you. The cost involved will play a role in the type of treatment you choose. The result you desire to get is yet another factor.

The type of treatment, the severity of your acne and where on your body is located are other factors that have to be used when treating acne scars.  The most common treatments for acne scars are collagen treatment, laser treatment, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, skin surgery and skin grafting.  Keloids could be left untreated if it is predicted that will develop further keloids.  Steroid injections may also be used to treat keloids.
