Treatment

Acne scarring arises as a normal skin response to inflammation or injury, exacerbated by factors like picking at active acne lesions. Most acne scars result from an inflammatory process leading to collagen fiber destruction in the dermis, with additional fibrosis possible. This can culminate in hypertrophic or keloid-type scars.
