Everyone has experienced acne issues at the most awkward times like before parties, work presentations, dates, or some crucial moments in their life. It is a skin condition, which surfaces when hair follicles get plugged with dead skin cells and oil. It causes pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads. It is generally a teenage issue, but it is capable to affect people at any age.

When they are severe, the pimple is pus-filled bumps [cysts] beneath the skin surface and is painful. Mild acne is with/without red pustules and causes less irritation than moderate acne pus-filled red pimples.

Acne scar types
These are flat and shallow depressions, which heal below the top skin layer. Severe cystic acne causes the scar. Atrophic scars are subcategorized into three types.
- Boxcar scars – The depression is broad, box-like with sharp edges. It commonly forms on the jaw and lower cheeks, where the skin is thick.
- Icepick scars – The scars are narrow hollows pointing downwards into the surface of the skin. You can find them commonly on your cheeks and need persistent hostile treatment.
- Rolling scars – Skin appears uneven and wavy because the scars have erratic depth with slanted edges.
Hypertrophic & keloid scars
The scars form raised lumps of tissue in place of the vanished acne. Scar tissue builds up from previous acne marks. Keloid scars are larger than acne causing them, while hypertrophic scars are of the same size. Both are commonly found in the chest, back, shoulder and jawline.
After the acne leaves, a discolored skin patch is left behind. It is not a mark and resolves with a reliable sun protection routine. If your skin is damaged due to severe acne then hyperpigmentation occurs. Over time, your skin gets its natural color with a sun protection regimen.
