For many, acne marks are the most distressing of all types of marks.
Acne marks have become one of the most widely discussed issues in the world of skincare, not only among adolescents but also among many adults. Touted treatments range from home remedies to expensive laser resurfacing and even surgery.
While some treatments can certainly help, unfortunately, there is no "magic bullet" for every type of acne mark.
There are several types of acne marks:
Ice-Pick Marks: The most common acne mark is a narrow, deep pit in the skin. In severe cases, these ice-pick marks take the form of large, open pore-like skin lesions. They develop after persistent acne or after an inflamed blemish or cyst.
Boxcar Marks: Wider than an ice-pick mark, this is an oval and indented lesion in the skin with angular sides. They usually occur on the cheeks and temple.
Rolling Marks: These have a wave-like appearance. They occur due to fibrous bands between the skin and the underlying subcutaneous tissue which tether and pull on the epidermis. This deforms the overlying skin and causes a mark.
Hypertrophic Marks: Hypertrophic marks are raised, very firm and red and can develop after any skin injury, including acne. They often have an “overgrown” appearance and can be itchy.
Keloid Marks: Like hypertrophic marks, keloids result from an overproduction of collagen. Unlike hypertrophic marks, keloids can "keep growing" to extend beyond the initial boundaries of the skin injury. These marks are thicker, harder, and red, overly raised and extend beyond the boundaries of the initial skin injury.
Dark Acne Marks: Any form of skin injury, including acne, causes inflammation in the skin that can go on to cause skin darkening in the area. This abnormal pigment is know as "post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)" and is often seen with acne.
InviCible Skincare helps fade acne marks and acne dark spots. Studies show that silicone, along with natural ingredients like aloe, Vitamin C, and essential fatty acids, can help normalize collagen production, even skin tone, and minimize the appearance of your acne mark.
