Acne Scar Treatment before and after

Overview of Acne scars treatment

Acne scars treatment are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually aren’t as smooth and flawless as the original skin.

Atrophic  or depressed scarring: These scars develop when there is a loss of tissue.

Acne scar causes

Acne inflammation can often wound the skin. As acne wounds heal, an abundance of collagen can be left behind, forming acne scars treatment that make the skin appear uneven.
Acne can also cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), a skin discoloration left behind after an inflamed acne wound has caused over-production of melanin in the skin. PIH is not true acne scarring, however, and will usually fade over time.

Acne scar removal

The first step in treating acne scars is to stop new acne from forming. From there, acne scar treatments should be customized based on your skin and scars.
