True acne scars occur when the inflammation in the skin is severe enough to cause collagen breakdown. This is usually a result of cystic acne. Scars may be pink or slightly darker at first, but as the normal skin color returns an indentation remains in your skin. The most common type of scars are those that look like little saucers, pockmarks, or jagged little divots, referred to as “ice pick” scars. These true scars cannot be healed with time or at home treatments, they must be treated with medical intervention by a dermatologist.
