  • Scar appearance varies depending on the severity of the original acne and the location on the face or the body.
  • The following are the main types of acne scars:
  • Box car scars - shallow to medium depth indented scars with well-defined edges.
  • Ice pick scars - Deep, narrow scars extending into the lower skin layers.
  • Rolling, tropic and depressed scars - rolling, depressed and tethered scars making the skin appear lumpy.
  • Mixed scars - the most common form of acne scarring where mixture of tethered, ice pick, box and rolling scars is present.
  • Red acne scars - these macular scars are commonly seen on the cheeks and forehead with redness as a major concern. these scars tend to fade with no intervention over a 6-12 month period but healing time can be reduced with laser treatment.
