Why do pimples scar?

Acne Scars

Acne
Scarring occurs when there is damage to the deeper layers of the skin. In acne, scarring/dimpling can result from inflammation, cysts, & nodules deep in the skin, or as a result of trauma from squeezing lesions. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is when a dark or reddish flat spot remains after a pimple has cleared. Unlike true scars, PIH can fade with time (months) & sun protection.

Can scars be removed?

Yes

Cicatrix
A bad scar can be excised and may improve the cosmetic appearance. There will be a fine line there even in the best circumstances. Some people get hypertrophic scars called keloids and may benefit from steroid injection.

Does kprf leave scars?

Generally not

Scarring
Keratosis pilaris rubra faceii involves excess keratin production (small bumps) on the face which is often inflamed, causing the redness. Since it generally does not involve infection, it usually does not leave scars unless someone picks at the bumps. If it is irritating you enough that you are picking, seek help from your dermatologist. If it scars, you need to see derm to r/o something else.

Scar excision would be cutting out the scar and resewing it up. Perhaps the scar spread or partially opened or got infected. By excising the scar it can be sewn up in a fine line.

Will grass burns scar?

Depends injury/Rx

Skin_burns
I assume you are asking about friction burns. If the wound is superficial & does not have any dirt or other particlate matter embedded in it, is kept clean & slightly moist and covered, and heals within 10-14 days, and the ensuing reddish area is protected by use of sunblock & scar care creams then majority of these wounds heal with little or no sequelae. See a Plastic surgeon, if concerned.

What gives acne scars?

Inflammation

Collagen
When acne is inflammatory, there are many chemicals that may destroy the structural elements in the dermis including collagen and elastic fibers. The skin becomes red and atrophic. Picking the pimples may enhance this damage.
