Some acronyms are used so frequently, so colloquially, we overlook the meaning in their very letters. A prime example in beauty is "laser," which stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Such gadgets operate in a very specific way, "emitting a narrow beam of a single wavelength, or color, of light," says Shereene Idriss, a clinical instructor in dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. However, she adds, the term has become a generic catchall for an entire class of plug-in dermatologic devices — wrongly so, of course, as many of these machines rely on different kinds of energy (ultrasound, or, say, radiofrequency) to achieve separate and distinct effects.

Acne scars are caused by inflammatory acne lesions, such as papules (pink raised bumps), pustules (pink bumps with white pus), or cysts. According to Chang, there are several factors that contribute to the risk of developing scars. First, it may be genetic: if you have family members who have acne scars, you're at a higher risk of developing them too. Your skin type also affects the types of scarring. Chang says those with lighter complexions may be more prone to acne erythema (persistent redness) after inflammatory acne, while those with darker complexion patients may be more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or brown blemishing.
