How to prevent acne scars & pimple marks?

Acne scars and pimple marks can aggravate memories of previous breakouts, as well as have an impact on our appearance. Acne scars are pitted or raised skin. They are caused by skin damage, which affects their appearance. This can also affect your self-esteem. 

You’ll be relieved to learn that you can mitigate their effects by preventing them from forming. Here are some practical ways to avoid acne scars & blemishes for smoother, healthier skin.

What Are Acne Scars?

Acne is a long-term skin disorder caused by oil glands at a hair follicle’s base. It can cause acne, breakouts known as white blackheads, as pimples, cysts, and other non-inflammatory and inflammatory skin lesions. These kinds of lesions are unattractive and may alter skin tone and shape.

When you have acne, your body produces collagen fibres to repair your skin. If collagen production is low, pitted scars may form, and collagen overproduction can cause raised scars.

Dermatologists divide acne scars into four main categories:

  • Rolling scars are shallow and silky. These scars give skin a wave-like appearance.
  • Sharp, shallow boxcar scars have definite edges. They usually appear as tiny skin imprints.
  • Icepick scars are deep, narrow scars that mimic empty skin pores. Overall, they are the most challenging acne scars to treat.
  • Keloid scars, or hypertrophic scars, are red patches. These scars may itch or irritate the skin.

Types of acne scars:

Treatment options vary by acne scarring type. Three groups predominate. 

  • Atrophied scars
  • Scars have tiny skin indentations.
  • Small icepick scars resemble pinprick pins.
  • Boxcar scars are more significant, bordered indentations.
  • Rolling scars have hidden edges and give the appearance of rolling.
  • They occur when the skin doesn’t develop enough fibroblasts during healing. Fibroblasts and cells affect collagen production and wound healing.
  • Scars from hypertrophy

The skin produces too many fibroblasts during acne recovery, causing these scars. Like hypertrophic scars, these scars are usually more significant than the acne spot they arise from. Many have hyperpigmentation, making them darker than the surrounding skin. They may be red or brown. Pain or itching may occur.

Natural remedies For Acne: 

Many people use natural remedies to decrease acne scars. However, their scientific basis needs to be clarified. Some may cause discomfort or other difficulties, so use them with caution.

Traditional home acne scar treatments include:

  • Some research suggests black seed oil might even affect skin tone.
  • Rosehip oil reduces postsurgical scars.
  • Honey may speed wound healing and reduce scarring.
  • Aloe vera and manuka honey may help wounds heal without scars.

What acne scar treatments exist?

Unfortunately, even with measures, acne scars can occur. In extreme cases, acne scars may last for years following treatment. However, regardless of your case’s severity, SKN Cosmetics provides a variety of clinically proven acne scar treatments to improve their appearance. The following are acne scar treatments offered at Arizona Dermatology:


Microdermabrasion uses a diamond tip to exfoliate the upper layer of skin. The cleaned skin is then vacuumed to remove skin cells that have died and cure acne scars. Microdermabrasion enhances skin texture and alleviates congestion.

The chemical exfoliation:

Chemical peels with light, medium, or heavy penetration depend on your skin. Our chemical peels heal acne scars well due to their short recovery and long-lasting benefits.

We provide numerous popular acne scar treatments, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion. See our post for more on these two treatments. For therapy, try microdermabrasion or chemical peel.

Use microneedles:

Micro-needling creates skin “micro-tunnels” with fine needles. These tiny wounds encourage collagen formation for skin repair. The needle is used to treat acne on the skin after applying it. This boosts medicinal efficacy. This therapy reduces pores, improves skin texture, and plumps deep scars.

Laser skin resurfacing:

Laser skin resurfacing is a good alternative if your acne has cleared up. Scars from laser skin resurfacing can be removed. In this technique, lasers release brief pulses of light to remove the top layer of skin. Laser heat stimulates collagen formation in the second layer of skin, resulting in firm, uniformly colored skin.
