What Causes Acne Scars?

Any grade or severity of acne can result in scars based on the healing response of the skin. However, you may be at a higher risk of developing acne scars if:

  • You are having severe breakouts that consist of cysts and nodules.
  • You delayed the treatment response to a bout of inflammatory acne.
  • You picked, popped or squeezed the acne.
  • You have a family history of acne and acne scars.

If you can relate to any of the above scenarios, you are likely to have acne scars.
