Prolonged acne can permanently damage skin and lead to scarring. This scarring can occur anywhere on the body where acne occurs. There are multiple treatments for acne scarring, such as a chemical peel, dermabrasion, and intense pulsed light (IPL). A proper treatment choice is dependant on the type of scar that has manifested on the body. Mild scarring can come in the form of a loss of skin color called hypopigmentation. It can also be more severe and manifest as a raised scar, or as a series of deep, unsightly recessions in the skin.
