An Overview of Lines of Acne Scars Management

Abdulsalam Mohammed Bin Khalel, Amin Mohamed Amer, Ayman EL Sayed Ahmed Youssef


Background: Dermatologists encounter acne as one of the most common and troublesome inflammatory skin conditions. The disease affects 95 percent to 100 percent of adolescent boys and 83 percent to 85 percent of adolescent girls during puberty, and it lasts into adulthood in about 12 percent to 14 percent of instances. Scarring is one of the most distressing and long-term repercussions of acne, affecting up to 95 percent of patients and 30 percent of those with severe acne. Acne scar treatment is complicated due to the large number of variables to consider while approaching them. The most common scar morphologies are ice pick, box car, and rolling. Scar severity is also an important factor to consider. Severe scars requires a different strategy then mild ones. The amount of surface skin area and/or scar depth, or the number of scars that are bound down, hypertrophic or ice pick scars, as the latter are more difficult to correct than rolling scars, are all examples of severe scarring.
