Who gets acne scars?
People who have inflammatory (swollen, reddish or painful) acne such as nodules or cysts, or have a family history of acne scars are more likely to have scarring themselves. Inflammatory acne penetrates deep into the skin, thus the skin is damaged which then increases the risk of scarring. The longer a person has this type of inflammatory acne, the more likely it will leave scars. Squeezing, picking or popping acne also increases inflammation, again, increasing the risk of scarring. It is not possible to predict who will develop acne scars; however it is possible to prevent acne scarring with effective and preventative acne treatments.
What causes acne scars?
Sometimes acne breakouts deeply penetrate the skin causing damage to the skin and tissue beneath it. The body tries to heal and repair the damage by producing collagen. The body must product just the right amount of collagen to heal the skin properly. If the body produces too little collagen or too much collagen, it results in a scar. The type of scar depends on how much collagen your body makes. Too little collagen produces a depression or pit in the skin as it heals. A raised scar is formed when the body produces too much collagen, which is more prevalent in people with darker skin colors.
