What are Acne Scars?
Types of Acne Scars
Difficulties in treating acne scars for dark skin patients
- Keloids: When your skin is hurt, fibrous tissue forms over the wound to repair & protect the injury. When the fibrous tissue is excessive, hard & smooth growths are formed and these are called Keloids.
- Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (aka PIH): It develops when an irritation or a wound (e.g pimple) makes your skin inflamed. Hence, your skin will try to heal but as a result it produces too much melanin, which darkens & discolors your skin. This is longer & more severe in darker skinned patients. In a nutshell, the more inflamed your wounds are, the worse the hyperpigmentation gets.
