Signs and Symptoms

symptomSigns and symptoms of acne scars may be different for every patient and recognizing the signs helps getting an appropriate treatment before they ruin your skin. The first sign of acne scar appears after lesion or cyst heals in the form of change in color or texture. Color changes are mostly not scars but a condition called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It usually fades over time. If acne lesions become severely inflamed or filled with pus, skin becomes vulnerable to scarring. Scars may appear in the form of depressions in the skin called pitted scars and raised marks called superficial scars.

Causes of Acne

scarAcne scars are mostly the product of severely inflamed lesions like papule, cyst and pustule. When acne breakouts penetrate the skin deeply, they damage the skin tissues beneath. After the acne clears, body repairs this damage. During this healing process, collagen – an important substance that gives support to the skin – is produced. Too much or too little production of collagen leads to appearance of acne scars. The type of scar also depends on the amount of collagen produced.

  • Depressed scars – Pits or depressions are formed on the skin when skin produces too little collagen during healing.
  • Raised scars – Raised or superficial scars are formed when skin produces too much collagen.
