Why acne scars form
Scars form when the skin, in a desperate attempt to heal itself, produces lots of collagen in the effort to compensate for the lack of normal skin functioning, and to fill in the gaps in tissue that are caused by the infection. This type of scar is usually raised. Acne "pit" or "pock" scarring occurs from the actual destruction of the tissue during the inflammatory process. Cystic acne is almost always associated with scarring. Credit:Mark Lees Skincare Beyond the Basics
