Scarring & Rough Texture

Acne scars are most often the product of an inflamed lesion, such as a papule, pustule, or cyst. Inflamed blemishes occur when the follicle, or pore, becomes engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.

More serious lesions arise when there is a deep break in the follicle wall. The infected material spills out into the dermis and destroys healthy skin tissue.

To repair the damage done to the dermis, the skin forms new collagen fibers. Collagen is the fibrous protein that gives the skin its strength and flexibility. Unfortunately, the finished “repair job” never looks as smooth and flawless as before the injury.

Prevention of Acne Scars:

  • Treat Acne as Soon as It Develops
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Don’t Squeeze, Pop, or Pick at Pimples
  • Don’t Pick at Scabs
  • See Your Doctor If You Get Large, Deep Breakouts or Acne Cysts
