Types of Acne Scars
1️⃣Post-Inflammatory Erythema (Red spots)
2️⃣Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (Dark spots)
3️⃣Atrophic acne scars (icepick, boxcar, or rolling scars)
Treatment really depends on the type of scarring, with atrophic acne scars usually requiring office procedures performed by a dermatologist
Reminder: If you do have acne that causes these deep atrophic scars, it’s important to aggressively treat the acne. Acne is easy to treat, scars are hard to treat!

There are also hypertrophic and hypopigmented acne scars, which are much less common. Full YouTube video on acne scars coming soon!
