Acne, which is called Acne vulgaris, commonly occurs when the body has hormonal variations- like during adolescence, pregnancy, menstruation or stress. When the pores are blocked by dead cells and sebum (oil), it leads to acne. Left untreated, acne can leave scars, especially on the face and back. Acne scars may be of different types:
- Icepick Scars: These are deep and pointed scars having unstable edges. Usually seen on the cheeks and nose, they look like wounds inflicted with an ice pick.
- Uneven scars: These are wide scars, which make the skin look swollen.
- Boxcar scars: They resemble chicken pox scars, having round or oval depressions and vertical edges.
