The data was collected through interviews using a questionnaire, including onset, acne types, physical treatment, infection, and the treatment of acne. The data was analyzed used Chi-Square test with the significance of p < 0,050 ; 95% confidence interval ; OR > 1. Results: There were 59 samples with acne scar as cases and 77 control samples. The prevalence of acne scar on this study subjects was 43,4%. The results of the bivariate test showed that there was a significant association between inflammatory acne type ( p < 0,000 ) with the incidence of acne scar. There were no significant association between physical treatment ( p = 0,293 ) and infection( p = 0,108 ) with the incidence of acne scar. There were no significant association between delay in treating the acne with the incidence of acne scar ( p = 0,594 ) and acne scar grade ( p = 1,298 ).
