The term "scarring" refers to a process where collagen within the skin is damaged from inflammation, leading to permanent texture changes in the skin. 

Types of scarring 

There are different kinds of scarring, the two main types we see are traumatic scarring and acne scarring.

  • Traumatic scars are caused by an injury to the skin.
  • Acne scars are caused by the inflammation from the acne lesions and have different forms including: ice pick scarring, atrophic scarring, and hypertrophic scarring. Colour changes in skin from acne are more common than scarring. Treating acne early, before scarring occurs is recommended. 
  • Stretch marks are caused by the persistent over-stretching of the skin.
