Acne scars pose a major social and psychological problem in adolescence as much as acne vulgaris itself. Various clinical types of acne vulgaris may affect superficial and/or deep dermis leading to formation of various skin stains and scars. These can manifest as simple erythema and pigment changes as well as hypertrophic or atrophic scars. The most important step in treating acne scars is an effective treatment of the early inflammatory acne to prevent formation of a scar. Once a scar develops, various physical and chemical skin restoration methods or defect repair methods are used to minimize signs.
