Acne Scars


If the actual fact of having acne wasn’t bad enough there is the problem of post acne scaring to deal with too.

Acne itself is what you can see from the result of skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. Unfortunately what happens is that the pore swells enough to break the follicle wall. This can lead only to temporary lesions which heal fast but if the infected material spills out onto the surrounding skin it can lead to deeper lesions. Your skin will naturally try and heal these wounds with new collagen fibres but unfortunately these are not usually as smooth as your original skin and can show up as a different colour or texture, and that is how you end up with acne scars.

All the normal actions of regular exfoliation and cleansing of your skin will of course help but it does not always avoid these complications and you are still left with the acne scarring which can be detrimental to your self-esteem, skin health and appearance.

There are two types of acne scars that you can be left with. One is when the body produces too much collagen in response to the acne wounds and you are left with a small mound of raised tissue, this is called hypertrophic scarring. The other is where you are left with a small hole or depressed area from a loss of tissue, this is called atrophic scarring.
