Acne scars fall into two main categories: those caused by a loss of tissue (atrophic acne scars), and those caused by an excess of tissue (hypertrophic acne scars). Within these categories, there are four main types of acne scars: ice pick, boxcar, rolling, and keloid scars. Acne scars can be difficult to treat and may require combined treatments to see significant improvement. Unfortunately, over-the-counter products simply aren’t powerful enough to improve anything besides discoloration.
There are procedures, though, that can improve the look and texture of your skin. Your options depend on the type of scarring you have. Most people have more than one type of scarring on their skin, so you might need a few different treatments to see the best results. Advanced skin rejuvenation treatments are combined to produce optimal results.
