Types of Acne Scars, Boxcar, Rolling & Icepick scars

Acne is one of the most prevalent skin conditions around the world, and one of the most common reasons that patients seek treatment from dermatologists each year. Unfortunately, for many who struggle with acne breakouts, acne scars become a long-term concern even far after the acne itself is resolved. There are a number of different types of acne scars that exist, and no two individuals with acne will scar in exactly the same fashion. Managing acne breakouts and treating acne scars is preferably done with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Green, who can recommend the treatments that are best-suited to diminishing the appearance of your particular scars. 

Acne breakouts and acne scarring affect many men and women alike. Often patients begin dealing with acne in their early teenage years, and breakouts commonly persist well into adulthood. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), approximately 50 million individuals suffer from acne at some point in their lives, and close to 40% of those individuals will develop some kind of acne scars. 

Dr. Michele Green is a world-renowned expert when it comes to treating acne and acne scars, with experience treating patients of all skin types and skin tones. In her boutique dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, she utilizes the most cutting-edge techniques and technologies to deliver phenomenal, long-lasting results. Whether you are treated with dermal fillers, chemical peels, microneedling, or laser resurfacing for your acne scars, Dr. Green will create a unique treatment protocol that aptly addresses your concerns and leaves you with clear, smooth, beautiful skin that lasts.

Types of acne scars

Acne is not a selective skin condition. Anyone who presents with an acne breakout, even if it’s a single acne lesion, has the potential for developing an acne scar. 

More severe acne lesions are accompanied by a greater risk of acne scarring. There are many different types of acne scars and they can develop regardless of how diligent you are when it comes to taking proper care of your skin. Since there are different types of acne lesions and no two acne scars are exactly the same, many patients with acne scars have the best cosmetic results when they take advantage of a combination treatment approach. Acne scars generally fall under two main categories, atrophic scars and hypertrophic scars. The following guide breaks down the characteristics of each kind of acne scar. 

How do I know what type of acne scar I have?

Most patients who are suffering from acne scars have a combination of types. However, in general, it is best to define the scars into two different types of acne scars. The first type of acne scars posses an indentation, depression, or volume loss. These types of scars can ray form boxcar scars, ice pick scars, to rolling scars. The second type of acne scars are scars which have raised, elevated scar tissue, such as hypertrophic scars or keloids.

How many types of acne scars are there?

There are two distinct categories of acne scars that exist, and several types of scars that fall into one of each category. 

I – Atrophic Acne scars

Atrophic acne scars are the most common type of acne scar that patients, particularly those with inflammatory acne, suffer from. Atrophic acne scars are depressed scars that are caused by a loss of skin tissue. Depressions in the skin form due to the skin’s inability to produce a sufficient amount of collagen during the natural wound healing process. This net loss of collagen is what creates a depression in the skin that can vary in size from a small indentation to a large defect in the skin. 

Inflammatory acne, such as pustules or cysts, often result in the formation of atrophic scars. This kind of inflammatory lesion is associated with infection and pus that cause the destruction of skin tissue and prevent it from healing properly. Atrophic scarring is also commonly seen in patients with chicken pox. Chicken pox scars develop as a result of patients itching their skin and picking at scabs, which interferes with new collagen production associated with the healing process. 

II – Hypertrophic scars

Hypertrophic scars grow above the surface of the skin and appear as a raised, firm skin growth. These scars are formed due to an excess of tissue that is produced by the skin as a part of the healing response to a wound. These scars usually grow to be larger in size than the initial wound. Not only do acne flareups cause hypertrophic scars, but any form of trauma to the skin may result in their development. 

Based on these two main categories, atrophic and hypertrophic, acne scars can be further divided into four subcategories. These subgroups of acne scars include ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars, and keloid scars.

What are the different types of acne scars?

The three different types of atrophic scars

I – Ice Pick Acne Scars

Ice pick scars are deep, narrow scars that often resemble enlarged pores. The term “ice pick” scar comes from the fact that the skin appears as if it has been pierced by a sharp tool, like an ice pick. These scars extend deep into the dermal layers of skin and are often caused by severe inflammation associated with cystic or nodular acne lesions. An infected, inflamed cyst causes loss of skin tissue, resulting in perforation of the skin. This causes the appearance of a deep and narrow hole that is characteristic of an ice pick scar. 

When it comes to treating the appearance of ice pick acne scars, there are several viable options. Punch excision is a technique that involves performing a small excision of the scar, utilizing a punch biopsy tool. After the scar is surgically removed, the would is sutured or glued together, and allowed to heal. Punch grafting is a procedure that entails taking a skin graft from behind the ear and using it to close the defect in the skin. This type of procedure, however, is usually reserved for deeper and larger scars. In your consultation, Dr. Green will evaluate your scars and help you determine which treatments are most appropriate for your skin. 

II – Boxcar Scars

Boxcar scars develop when inflammatory acne destroys the collagen fibers within the skin. This type of acne scar leaves a depression in the skin as a result of that collagen loss. This loss of collagen frequently results in a sunken appearance of the skin due to a lack of tissue support. Boxcar scars can be either superficial or deep, depending on the amount of skin atrophy caused by inflamed and infected acne lesions. Boxcar scars are round or oval-shaped in appearance and have deep vertical sides. Boxcar scars are wider in appearance than ice pick scars.

Dr. Green recommends a number of cosmetic treatments for her patients with boxcar scars including dermal fillers, punch excision, punch grafting, and laser treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Green, she will evaluate your scars and help you to determine which treatments are best-suited to you.

III – Rolling Scars

Rolling scars, as the name suggests, have the appearance of rolling across the skin in a wave-like manner. Rolling scars, unlike boxcar scars, do not have sharply defined borders. When a patient presents with rolling scars, the skin itself appears to have a wavy and rough looking surface. 

Rolling scars are formed due to fibrous bands of tissue developing between the skin and the subcutaneous tissue underneath the skin. The fibrous bands pull down on the epidermis, binding it to the subcutaneous tissue deep within the skin. The impact of the epidermis being pulled down is what creates the rolling, wavy appearance of the skin. Rolling scars are unfortunately often the most difficult type of acne scars to treat and usually require a combination of laser treatments and subcision with dermal fillers in order to successfully improve their appearance.

Hypertrophic scars

Keloid Scars

A hypertrophic scar, also called a keloid, is a raised scar that often appears as a thick and lumpy overgrowth of skin tissue. It is typical for a keloid scar to grow over the original wound and extend so that it ends up being much larger in size than the acne lesion that caused it to form. The reason for this being that keloids continue to grow long after the original wound has been healed. Some individuals have a genetic predisposition for the development of keloids, and keloid scarring is more often experienced by patients with darker skin tones.

In contrast with atrophic acne scars, during the formation of keloid scars the skin overproduces new collagen. It is almost as if the skin does not recognize that a wound has healed, and thus the process of repairing the wound is overextended. The overproduction of collagen results in excess tissue, which is what causes the formation and raised appearance of keloid scars. 

It is advised that patients only treat keloid scars in a medical setting with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon in order to avoid exacerbation of skin irritation, which can ultimately worsen the scar. Dr. Green has treated thousands of diverse patients who struggle with the appearance of keloid scars, and often recommends a combination treatment approach for the best cosmetic results. Typical treatment regimens often include silicone gels, V-Beam laser therapy, and steroid injections. 

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation/dark marks

Post-Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) refers to the dark spots that may be left behind after an acne lesion, or other inflammatory skin condition (such as a wound or a rash), heals. The color of the dark spots associated with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can vary, appearing as brown, black, red, pink, or purple patches of skin- depending on skin tone. During the natural healing process of the skin, there is potential that skin cells involved with healing the area are also contributing to the overproduction of melanin, leading to the development of hyperpigmented areas of skin. Although this type of hyperpigmentation may fade on its own over time, it’s much more effective and efficient to have treatment with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Green in New York, who can guide you along treatment with the best skin care, sun protection, and skin lightening products available. 

How do I know what type of acne scars I have?

The best way to understand what types of acne scars you have is by consulting with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Michele Green. Dr. Green has spent the last 25 years treating acne and acne scars for some of the most discerning men and women from around the world. There are many types of acne scars that can form and no two patients will scar in an identical manner. In order to choose the most appropriate treatments for reducing your individual scars, you should meet with a medical professional who has the experience and expertise to diminish your scars in the most efficient, safe, and effective methods. 

Why does acne cause scars?

Acne lesions form when the sebaceous glands or the hair follicles of the skin become clogged with sebum, debris, or dead skin cells. Once trapped beneath the surface of the skin, bacteria multiplies- causing inflammation and irritation that presents as acne. 

Acne, especially inflammatory acne, can damage the underlying skin tissue. The natural wound-healing response of the skin entails promotion of new collagen in the skin. An acne scar forms when the inappropriate amount of collagen is produced- either too much or not enough collagen will result in an acne scar. For this reason, it is essential to start treating acne as soon as it forms. Preventing an acne scar by treating the acne is often much easier than reducing the appearance of a scar after it has formed. 

What type of acne leaves scars? 

Inflammatory acne breakouts that present as cysts, pustules, or nodules are more likely to leave behind scars than non-inflammatory acne, such as blackheads. This is due to the fact that cystic and nodular lesions affect the skin tissue on deeper levels, causing damage that the skin is often unable to repair properly. Leaving acne untreated is a surefire way to end up with acne scars, meaning that the best way to avoid scarring is by consulting with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Green. This is especially important for those who know that there is a family history of acne scars, since there is an increased likelihood for developing acne scars if you have siblings or parents that also have acne scars. 

Additionally, any acne lesion may lead to an acne scar if it is picked at or popped. Whatever you do, do not squeeze your pimples! Attempting to perform your own extractions at home can exacerbate or cause inflammation, and may even force the trapped sebum, debris, and dead skin cells deeper into the pores. The majority of acne scars that patients seek treatment for are those which resulted after attempting to pop their own pimples. Instead of running the risk of creating an acne scar, schedule a consultation with Dr. Green who will develop a personalized plan for your acne treatment and help you to best avoid acne scars completely. 

What is the most common acne scar?

The most common type of acne scar that patients experience is an atrophic scar. Atrophic scars occur when skin tissue is damaged and volume is lost. This kind of acne scarring is most often associated with inflammatory acne lesions, such as cysts. Any active acne lesion, however, can potentially result in the formation of an acne scar, making early intervention the best way to prevent acne scars altogether. If you are struggling with acne, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Green as soon as possible in order to protect your skin against acne scars- which are often more difficult to treat than the acne breakout itself. Dr. Green can create a treatment plan for you that specifically caters to your skin type and cosmetic concerns, resulting in a clear and radiant complexion that is blemish(and scar)-free.

Which acne scar types are permanent?

Unfortunately, most types of acne scars are permanent. Permanent acne scars are atrophic, hypertrophic, or sometimes even a combination of the two. However, the permanence of an acne scar does not mean that their appearance can not be significantly improved. For many who have struggled with acne, the presence of acne scars can serve as a painful reminder of their battle with acne. Acne scars frequently cause feelings of self-consciousness and many patients seek treatment in order to regain self-confidence in their skin. Through the implementation of a customized treatment plan that is unique to you and the types of scarring you have, Dr. Green can significantly diminish the appearance of your scars and provide you with a smooth, beautiful complexion that lasts. 

What do permanent acne scars look like?

Permanent acne scars typically appear as depressions or as raised areas of skin. After an acne breakout resolves, if you observe an area of smooth skin that has pigment- whether it be pink, red, purple, brown, or black, it is not a true acne scar. These pigmented marks that are left behind after an acne breakout heals are known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). PIH typically resolves on its own, though it can take a significant amount of time to diminish. Treatment by a board-certified dermatologist can expedite the healing process and quickly result in an even-toned, smooth complexion. 

What are the best acne scar treatment options? 

Subcision with Dermal Fillers

Subcision is a procedure that entails using a needle to break apart the scar tissue that tethers the top layer of the skin to its underlying layers. Dr. Green takes an innovative approach to performing subcision on her patients by often simultaneously injecting dermal fillers into the acne scars as she is breaking up the scar tissue underneath. In this fashion, patients benefit from the long-term effects of having subcision while also enjoying the restoration of volume that is provided by the dermal filler injection. 

Atrophic acne scars, or depressed scars, can be characterized by indentations in the skin. Injecting dermal filler into the indentations helps to replace the volume loss experienced in the tissue. Rolling scars and boxcar scars are particularly well-suited to treatment with dermal fillers, and Dr. Green consistently provides her acne scar patients with a smoother texture when they choose to have subcision with dermal filler. The dermal filler products most often used by Dr. Green include hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, as well as Sculptra- a dermal filler product that is composed of poly-L-lactic acid and induces collagen production in the skin. 

A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area one hour in advance of the procedure to ensure patient comfort. During the treatment, the needle is inserted underneath the scar by Dr. Green. Once the needle is carefully positioned, the filler is then deposited into the depression. The process is repeated in each individual scar until all of the scars have been successfully treated. Some patients with more severe scarring may require several treatment sessions. Dermal fillers can also be used to restore age-related volume loss, provide facial contour, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the facial features. Dr. Green has provided her patients with the best in cosmetic dermal fillers for over 25 years. She will develop a customized treatment plan for you during your consultation that targets your individual concerns and provides you with phenomenal, long-lasting results. 

Fraxel Laser Treatment for Acne Scars

Dr. Green refers to Fraxel Dual as the “magic eraser” due to its unique ability to tackle a wide range of skin concerns, including acne scars. Fraxel utilizes a fractional laser technology that allows the device to create precise, controlled microscopic wounds in the dermis of the skin. Through the natural wound healing process of the skin that follows a Fraxel treatment session, new collagen and elastin are generated. The result is a clear, smooth, beautiful, and even-toned and textured complexion that lasts. Patients who are interested in reducing the overall appearance of their acne scars should expect to have a series of three to five Fraxel laser therapy sessions spread one month apart to achieve optimal cosmetic results. 

The Fraxel Dual, often used by Dr. Green in her boutique dermatology office in the Upper East Side, is also an effective treatment for addressing skin concerns such as uneven skin pigmentation, sun spots, stretch marks, surgical scars, and overall tone and texture of the skin. Fraxel should not, however, be used to treat melasma. Melasma is a skin condition characterized by brown or gray-brown patches of skin which are darker in color than the rest of the surrounding skin. The presence of melasma can be influenced by a number of factors including genetics, hormones, medical conditions, and UV-exposure. Melasma can be extremely difficult to remove after having treatment with laser therapy, since the heat and energy from a laser may cause the hyperpigmentation to become even more entrenched in the deeper layers of the skin. Dr. Green can help you determine which cosmetic treatments are best-suited to your skin type, skin tone, and specific acne scars and ensure that you are treated with the most appropriate treatments for you.

eMatrix for Acne Scars

The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation is a laser resurfacing technology, approved by the FDA, for minimization of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and even stretch marks. This skin resurfacing laser uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen production in the dermal layer of the skin while leaving the epidermal layer intact. The eMatrix is unique in that it boasts similar results to that of many ablative laser treatments, without the discomfort or the need for such extensive downtime. 

Four to six treatments of eMatrix are typically required in order to achieve the ideal cosmetic results, and the eMatrix can be used for patients of all skin types and skin tones. Following a treatment session with the eMatrix, it is completely normal to experience redness and mild roughness of the treatment area. These side effects usually resolve on their own within 48 hours of the procedure. Results are cumulative, and over the course of approximately 3 to 6 months, the appearance of acne scars continues to diminish as new collagen is developed.

V-Beam Pulsed Dye Laser Treatment for acne scars

The V-Beam laser is considered to be the gold standard treatment when it comes to targeting redness in the skin, including that which is associated with acne inflammation. This laser operates on a wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by skin cells with red pigment. The light is converted into energy and destroys the red pigment while leaving the surrounding structures of the skin unaffected. There is zero downtime involved with V-Beam treatment, meaning that you can resume regular daily activities immediately after the procedure. As an added bonus, the V-Beam utilizes a patented cooling technology- referred to as the dynamic cooling device (DCD) that cools the skin directly before and after each laser pulse. The DCD greatly increases the comfort for the patient during treatment and for this reason, no topical anesthetic is required. Dr. Green loves the results that the V-Beam pulsed dye laser provides her patients who are seeking a solution for red acne scars, rosacea, surgical scars, broken capillaries, stretch marks, and angiomas.

Chemical Peels to remove acne scars

Chemical peels are designed to promote cellular turnover in order to reveal healthier skin and an even, smooth, clear complexion. Peels remove the dead, damaged, and discolored skin cells from the surface of the skin while stimulating generation of new collagen. Not only do chemical peels help diminish acne scars, but can also be used to treat skin concerns such as fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other skin blemishes. Chemical peels are a versatile cosmetic treatment and can be used to effectively improve the appearance of acne scars or skin discoloration on the face, chest, back, and buttocks.  

There are several types of chemical peels available which are formulated with different types of acids. Most peels are offered in various strengths, creating the option to treat with a mild, medium, or deep chemical peel. The appropriate strength chemical peel for treatment is typically dependent on the skin condition being targeted. Dr. Green often enhances the cosmetic effects of chemical peels by combining them with topical ingredients for at-home use such as Retin-A, retinol, and hydroquinone. 

Glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), is used for a mild chemical peel treatment. A glycolic acid peel exfoliates and unclogs pores, eliminates blemishes, and helps boost skin health. 

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are used by dermatologists, like Dr. Green, in a medical setting. TCA peels are available in strengths from 10% to 100% and are especially effective against acne scars and hyperpigmentation. 

In a method known as TCA cross, a very high concentration of TCA is placed directly into an atrophic scar. The TCA produces a “frost”, an immediate whitening of the area, that encourages peeling over the span of several days. TCA cross is a technique that is best-suited for the treatment of medium to deep ice pick scars. Following this procedure, strict sun avoidance and adamant use of sunscreen is essential in order to avoid hyperpigmentation of the treatment area. TCA cross is better suited to patients with fair to light skin tones, as patients with medium to dark skin tones are at higher risk for experiencing skin discoloration as a side effect. Consulting with Dr. Green is the most efficient and practical way to determine as to whether you are a good candidate for acne scar treatment with TCA cross. 

Dermabrasion for acne scars

Dermabrasion is a skin resurfacing procedure that is often used to treat acne scars. During the treatment, a rapidly rotating device is used to sand away the top layer of skin. It can take several weeks to recover from the procedure, and most patients are red and sensitive for some time after treatment. Dermabrasion is most appropriate for patients who have a fair complexion. Patients with darker skin tones should avoid having dermabrasion as it may result in exacerbation of hyperpigmentation, skin discoloration, and even scarring. 

Microdermabrasion to remove acne scars

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that consists of using a microcrystal spray to remove the uppermost layers of dead and damaged skin cells. This technique helps to reveal a fresher, healthier-looking complexion. When it comes to treating acne scars, microdermabrasion is useful because it encourages the production of new skin cells with an increased amount of collagen. This process can be beneficial for the treatment of mild textural acne scars, though more severe acne scars are better treated with procedures such as dermal fillers or laser skin resurfacing.

Cortisone injections for treating acne scars

Intralesional cortisone injections are administered by Dr. Green directly into acne lesions, cysts, or keloids. These steroid injections are highly effective for shrinking up active acne lesions and raised scars alike. Generally, a series of intralesional Kenalog injections are needed in order to successfully flatten hypertrophic scars. In addition, if the scars are red in color or are very inflamed, the V-Beam pulsed dye laser can be used in tandem with the cortisone injections to further reduce their appearance. 

Microneedling to remove acne scars 

Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to improve both the tone and texture of the skin. A microneedling treatment entails the application of ultra-fine needles to the surface of the skin in order to create controlled skin injury. This process stimulates the generation of new elastin and collagen within the skin as it heals itself. This treatment can be extremely beneficial for patients who are seeking to reduce the appearance of textural irregularities in the skin such as fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. Dr. Green often suggests to her patients that they take advantage of adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to their microneedling treatments. PRP contains a tremendous supply of epidermal growth factors that can further  enhance the skin rejuvenating effects of microneedling. To enhance patient comfort during the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin an hour in advance of the treatment. Due to its ability to kickstart collagen production in the skin, microneedling is extremely effective at permanently reducing or eliminating the appearance of atrophic acne scars.

Are there any home remedies for acne scars?

Some patients choose to supplement their in-office acne scar treatments with varying home remedies such as black seed oil and Aloe Vera, both of which are naturally anti-inflammatory and can help to somewhat improve skin texture and tone. There are also several over the counter skin care products that can be incorporated into your daily routines to further diminish the appearance of your acne scars from the comfort of your own home. 

Before adding any skin care product into your regular regime, it is important to consult with Dr. Green in order to ensure that the selected products are appropriate, safe, and will deliver the desired effects. Depending on your skin type and unique skin situation, Dr. Green may recommend products such as retinoids, retinols, or hydroquinone in order to improve the overall look and feel of your skin.

Skincare for Acne Scars

Retinoids

Retinoids are a class of skincare with the unique ability to regenerate skin cells and vastly improve overall skin texture. This inherent quality of retinoids makes them indispensable in the treatment of acne and acne scars. Retinoids are derived from Vitamin A, and are available in several forms. Retinyl palmitate, retinyl aldehyde, adapalene, isotretinoin, tretinoin, tazarotene, hydroxypinacolone retinoate, and bakuchiol are all various retinoids that you may find in some of your favorite skincare products. Each of these ingredients benefits the skin by stimulating collagen production. By doing so, retinoids are incredibly helpful when it comes to improving skin texture, decreasing the number of pimples, and even improving conditions such as hyperpigmentation. Retinols are an over the counter form of Retin-A, do not require a prescription, and come in varying strengths. The strength and efficacy is dependent upon the form of the Vitamin A derivative and how the skin converts it to Retinoic acid.  

Tretinoin, Retin-A, and Isotretinoin (Accutane) are vitamin A derivatives that are only available by prescription. A board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Green, has to prescribe you these medications due to their potency and their increased probability of causing some skin irritation compared to the over the counter alternatives available. Meeting with Dr. Green is the best way to determine as to which vitamin A derivative would work best for your skin and provide you with optimal cosmetic results. 

Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is indisputably one of the best skin care ingredients available for treating acne and can be found in many over the counter products. Salicylic acid is a gentle chemical exfoliant that increases the rate of skin cell turnover, resulting in pores that are free of dirt, debris, and sebum. Not only does salicylic acid work to decongest the pores, but this powerhouse of an ingredient also reduces inflammation associated with acne. When you incorporate salicylic acid into your daily skincare regimen, you can expect to observe a healthier, clearer complexion and an improvement in the appearance of your breakouts and acne scars alike. 

Dr. Green has worked to develop a number of specially formulated skincare products that deliver real results for her patients struggling with their acne and acne scars. From her MGSkinLabs line – the Retexturizing Pads and Pore Minimizing Cleanser both incorporate salicylic acid and are ideal for effectively exfoliating the skin, unclogging the pores, decreasing the presence of acne, and eliminating pesky blackheads.
