Scar Question

Recommended Posts

How are scars actually classified as scars?

I have a few Icepick looking scars but my skin is smooth, if i touch my skin I cannot feel any lumps. Would this be considered a scar? The Icepick I have are hyperpigmented. Small light brownish colored dots.

I got a bit confused when I looked at the stickied scar pic on top of this forum because I noticed that all the types of scars they showed had skin depth and no discoloration.

You can go to a Dermatologist if you want to know what type of scars you have.

Icepick scars are generally small in diameter, but can be fairly deep. They might be shallow icepick scars, or dilated/enlarged pores. Basically, we can only guess from your description.

hehe I know for sure they arent blackhead ( I had a few on my nose soo i know what blackheads are) proactive repairing lotion got rid of them in less than a week. Im pretty sure they are shallow icepick scars, but for a scar to be classified as a scar does it have to have skin depth?
