Ice Pick Scars
Ice pick scars are a subtype of atrophic scars that appear as narrow, deep puncture marks in the skin. These scars resemble the hole left behind by an ice pick, hence the name. Typically resulting from severe cystic acne, they extend deep into the dermis, making them one of the most challenging scar types to treat. Their deep, narrow appearance distinguishes them from other acne scar types.
