What Are Acne Scars?

While active acne itself can be a major problem, sometimes, it's what it leaves behind that can be a cause for concern. In some severe cases of acne, it can leave behind dark scars that can be depressed or raised and bumpy. This often leads to self-consciousness as, unlike acne, acne scars will not eventually fade away. Additionally, these scars can be difficult to hide through the use of makeup, making many people feel stuck with their appearance. At About Face & Body Medical Spa, we understand what it's like to live with acne scars, and we offer multiple ways to reduce their appearance, granting our Katy, TX patients some peace of mind.

Acne Scars FAQ

What types of acne scars are there?
There are several types of acne scars, including atrophic scars (depressed scars), hypertrophic scars (raised scars), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots). Atrophic scars can be further categorized into icepick scars, boxcar scars, and rolling scars based on their appearance and depth.

Can acne scars be prevented?
While not all acne scars can be prevented, taking steps to manage acne effectively can reduce the risk of scarring. This includes avoiding picking or squeezing pimples, using appropriate acne treatments as prescribed by our team at About Face & Body Medical Spa, and protecting the skin from sun exposure to prevent further damage.

How long does it take to see results from acne scar treatments?
The timeline for seeing results from acne scar treatments varies depending on the type of treatment and the severity of the scars. Some treatments, such as microneedling or laser therapy, may take several weeks to months for noticeable improvement as the skin heals and regenerates.
