Scars are marks left on the skin that is a sign of the skin healing after a wound or injury. Surgery, illness, burns, and acne are some common causes of scarring. Acne scars are one of the most common causes of facial scarring that occur when a breakout causes inflammation and trauma under the skin which leads to scarring. Scars can vary based on the person’s skin type, how they got the scar, age, and more. Scars vary in appearance and can be raised, pitted, or flat, and can be different colors such as red, pink, or brown.
While some scars, like acne scars, can fade with time, other scars may persist depending on the person.
