How do Acne Scars Differ from Typical Scars?

Acne Scars are Bound Down and Depressed

As with other scars, acne scars are the result of a wound in our skin healing, resulting in too much collagen in that particular spot. Unlike other scars, however, acne scars are bound down and depressed within our skin. Since the wound occurs within the dermis from the original inflammation brought on by acne, the scar is often within our skin, rather than on its surface. This makes acne scarring very difficult to improve. Modern science has, however, developed some highly effective technologies for treating and removing acne scars. Lasers can be very effective at improving the look and texture of acne scarring.
