How ever much we hate them, scars are the result of the body’s natural healing process, when they are visible – on our faces for instance, is when we begin to be affected by their appearance.
Of all the causes for scarring; accidents and surgery aside, acne is without doubt the most common cause of scarring, particularly on the face, neck and back.
If acne is mild to moderate, its unlikely to cause scarring, it is with severe cases of acne that scarring is most likely.
It appears when acne has formed deep inside the skins layers, it damages the dermis, causing a break in the follicle walls, forming a lesion, allowing bacteria and other infected material to spread underneath the skins surface, causing damage to otherwise healthy skin cells.
To counteract this, the body goes into repair mode,and steps up production of collagen to try and repair the skin. This is where the body lets itself down, the repair process is based more on functionality as opposed to aesthetics.
Too much collagen can cause raised lumps which is what is known as Keloid or Hypertrophic scarring.
The most common form of scarring are depressed scars, ( often causing the appearance of dimpled skin) these are called Atrophic scars, and are caused by a loss or reduction in skin tissue,the body does its best to replace the damaged skin cells, but in many occasions, does not manage to do this completely.
