Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people, both young and old. The word “acne” means “pimples” in Greek, but it can also refer to blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of pimples.

Acne scarring is a skin condition that has long been seen as one of the most difficult to treat. However, new therapies make it likely that many people will experience less blemishes and fewer scars after treatment.

Acne is the most common skin condition that affects humans. It develops where more oil glands are present, e.g., on the face, scalp, chest, back and neck. Acne is caused by oil glands in the skin producing too much oil, which then blocks hair follicles on the skin’s surface. This can cause bacteria to grow in the blocked pores and start an infection that leads to swelling and inflammation. There are many different types of acne: some have bumps that are red with pus-filled pimples; others are more like scars with dark spots or discolored areas where the skin has been damaged by inflammation.

The inflammation associated with the lesion can damage skin tissue, causing it to collapse and leave a scar. These scars can manifest in many forms, including atrophic acne scars resulting from limited collagen as the skin attempts to heal itself. These scars are known as “ice pick”, “boxcar”, and “rolling” scars.
