Fortunately, PIH is not a scar. It’s only the remainder of a previous acne lesion. PIH fades between 3-24 months; however, there are treatment options for PIH that can help you achieve healthier, clearer skin. It is important for patients to be aware that picking at or popping pimples will increase the odds of developing PIH lesions.
