Scars can result from any level of healing, whether from Caesarean sections or even from bad acne. Keloids are hypertrophic scars, where excessive skin repair results in the scar protruding from the surface.
Another type of scars is Atrophic or depressed scars. These scars develop when there is loss of tissue. Icepick scars and Boxcar scars are the common examples of atrophic scarring which are successfully treated with acne scar treatment. Removing these highly visible scars can help self esteem and greatly improve the appearance. Acne Scar Treatment can be a combination of steroid injections, laser resurfacing or local skin applications.
