Acne scars: Who gets and causes
Who gets acne scars?
Some people are more likely to see scars when their acne clears. The risk increases when a person:

Has inflammatory (swollen, reddish, and painful) acne, such as acne cysts and nodules. This type of acne tends to penetrate deep into the skin, which damages the skin. 
Delays or does not treat inflammatory acne. The longer a person has inflammatory acne, the greater the risk of scarring.
Picks, squeezes, or pops acne. This increases inflammation, which increases the risk of scarring. 
Has a blood relative who developed acne scars. Genes play a large role.
Although we know what increases a person’s risk of developing acne scars, it is not possible to predict who will develop acne scars. Even people who have all the risk factors may not scar. 

It is, however, possible to prevent acne scars with effective acne treatment. 

Waiting to treat acne until it becomes severe can lead to extensive scarring.
