Acne Scar Treatment

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes blackheads, whiteheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.

Causes

Four main factors cause acne:
  • 1
    Excess oil production
  • 2
    Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells
  • 3
    Bacteria
  • 4
    Excess activity of a type of hormone

What are Acne Scars?

Acne scars are the dark and sometimes swollen pits left in the skin long after the pimple has healed and are divided into four categories according to appearance and cause:
  • Ice pick (Small pits)
  • Rolling (Caused by damage underneath the epidermis)
  • Boxcar (Scars that have sharp edges)
  • Hypertrophic (Raised and bumpy because of excess scar tissue under the skin)

How Do People Get Acne Scars?

Notably, not all acne scars arise due to picking the outbreak area. The skin on your face is extremely sensitive and due to skin pores being filled with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria the resulting inflamed blemishes cause scars on your skin. If you suffer from extreme bouts of intense acne inflammation, acne scars are a possibility.
