How you can improve acne scars at home.
Types of acne scarring.
There are two types of acne scars; pitted or pigmented.
Pitted scars happen when the underlying skin tissue has been damaged. Pigmented scars (either red or brown) are marks left behind after the acne has cleared up.
Acne scars are most likely to be caused when the acne has been squeezed or pinched or when the acne was particularly severe. Acne scars may take twelve months to heal on their own, however healing differs from person to person. Some people and severe cases of acne may have scars that simply never heal. Like all things, prevention, in this case, of scarring, is better than cure.
To address scars, for best results, it’s best to use an acne scar treatment as soon as possible after the scars appear.
