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. 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.
