Acne Scars

After acne has cleared, sometimes scarring is left behind. Typical types of scars include ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These scars can sometimes cause as much distress as the acne itself. Luckily, there are several treatments available to help to correct scarring.

What to avoid?

  • Picking and Squeezing: Pus and bacteria will move deeper into the skin resulting in more skin damage.
  • Sun: UV rays darken scars and slow the healing process. Use Sunscreen with SPF 30 and zinc oxide, and wear protective clothing.
