What Causes Acne Scarring?
Not everyone with acne develops scars as a result. You may develop acne scars for many reasons. Some people have a genetic tendency to form scars when their skin is damaged. Cystic acne forms deep in the skin and often leaves scars, but any type can cause them, especially if you squeeze, pick, or interfere with blemishes. Scarring occurs when the skin is disrupted and repairs itself with scar tissue, which looks different from normal skin.
