Acne scarring is a common sequel of severe inflammatory or cystic acne. It can present in a mild or cosmetically disfiguring form. The best prevention of acne scarring Is aggressive treatment of acne vulgaris at the time of presentation, including, when appropriate, isoretinoin. Acne scars have several varieties including atrophic, ice-pick, rolling, and boxcar scars. Treatments vary according to the type of scar being treated. Seen here are erythematous deep acne scars.
