thank you for your query.

Acne scars develop in areas where former cystic blemish lesions have been present. Acne scars come in three varieties

*Atrophic, which are mostly shallow
*Ice pick-shaped, which are narrow and deeper.

People with deeper skin tones may also notice darkening (or hyperpigmentation) within the scars, while people with lighter skin tones may show redness (or erythema) within the scars.

Treatment includes-
1.first reduce the redness of a blemish by applying cortisone cream to the scar.Cortisone will help fight the inflammation and surrounding redness of the scar, making it appear less noticeable .
2.Try fade creams such as kojic acid and arbutin can also use retinoids and Vit C ointments.
4.procedures such as dermabrasion and microdermabrasion and chemical peels can be done after consultation with a dermatologist.

thank you,
wishing you good health
