Types of Acne Scars

From Atrophic scars to Hypertrophic scars to Keloids, there are many different types of acne scars.

Management of Atrophic Scars

Atrophic scars form as a result of deficient collagen production following an intracutaneous inflammation. Underlying pathologies such as acne, chicken pox, hesitation cuts, burns, and stretch marks may lead to severe atrophic scars and contour defects in the skin. Atrophic scars may be managed by a variety of treatment options and many times are best managed by combining different therapeutic options.

Management of Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids

Treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids is challenging because of the potential of recurrence in these scars. Therapies are thus based on combination approaches with the goal of preventing reformation of keloids and hypertrophic scars after treatments.
