What Are the different Types of Acne Scars?
Acne scars don't all look the same. Some acne scars are depressed, some are raised, and others make pitted indentions in the skin. The most common types of acne scars include:
- Rolling Scars – depressed scars with sloped edges that merge with normal skin and can be circular or linear. This is the most common type of acne scarring.
- Icepick Scars – sunken or pitted scars that deeply penetrate the skin and are more commonly seen on the cheeks.
- Boxcar Scars – shallow depressions with sharply defined edges that look like cutouts. Shallow boxcar scars can often be addressed with skin resurfacing treatments.
- Hypertrophic Scars – raised, firm scars that remain within the borders of the original acne.

"It is no wonder why the Spyglass team has collected so many 5 star reviews. The office is very well kept, the staff is friendly and attentive, and Dr. Schuering is an excellent practitioner of medicine. Before my procedure began, he explained to me every detail, and provided me with a printout of more research on the matter. During the procedure he was very professional and friendly, and put on some music for me and the staff to enjoy. Afterwards he watched my reaction closely, and personally followed up with me the next day to check in on me. I highly recommend the Spyglass Derm Team and Dr. Schuering. They are a wonderful, patient-first practice."- R.U. / Google / Oct 20, 2021
