Amongst the various types of acne, scarring is most commonly seen with Cystic acne. Cystic acne is the harshest and the most painful form of acne. Unlike the usual acne, cystic acne takes a longer time to heal and often leaves behind scars. Any invasive approach to treating cystic acne should be avoided as there is a risk of developing 2 types of scars – either the depressed scars or the raised scars. The depressed scars are also called as ice pick scars and can be shallow or deep. The shallow ones can give the skin a typical wave-like appearance making it look old and withered. The deeper ones can be more deforming making the skin appear like a cobbled road. The raised scars are called keloids and can appear quite unsightly. The best approach with cystic acne therefore should be non-invasive. Early treatment is the best solution. The first aim of the treatment should be to prevent newer acne and minimize the scarring. Severe acne should never be ignored as just a part of growing up.
