Living with acne scars can be very limiting. Facial scarring can negatively affect your social life and daily routine. For those suffering from acne scars, fear not, there are a wide variety of extremely effective cosmetic modalities to help treat acne scars and facial scarring. There is no need to live in the shadows any longer.
Over 50 million Americans suffer from acne, and 85% of people have had different types of acne at least once in their lives. Roughly 45% of teens and adolescents have some form of acne scarring. Those are pretty compelling statistics.
It is important to point out that acne is a medical condition and should be treated as such. There is a misconception that people suffering from acne are somehow dirty, or lack proper hygiene, which couldn’t be further from the truth. This can be an emotionally crippling myth to overcome, especially if you are on the receiving end of such ridicule.
Acne occurs when dead skin cells accumulate and clog hair follicles. While acne is most common on the forehead, chin, cheekbones, it can also become a problem on the shoulders, back and chest.
Acne can be a formidable foe. The condition can be stubborn to treat. Even if you happen to find a solution to the acne itself, it can often leave significant scarring. Without proper treatment those scars can last a lifetime. Fortunately, there are moderately invasive cosmetic procedures that can turn your skin around.
Acne scarring is a process that occurs due to a few factors:
• Inflamed pores eventually burst, releasing infected debris deep into the skin.
• Collagen is produced to repair this damage, which may be relatively shallow or deeper.
• The deeper the rupture, the more severe the scarring.
• Changes in texture and smoothness occur during the healing process.
• Deep depressions form, creating a rolling appearance on the surface.
