Acne and Acne Scars

How to treat acne and its scars without surgery using non-invasive techniques?

If there ever was a skin condition that is known to everyone, it has to be acne! With symptoms including rashes on the face and back and the appearance of redness quickly turning into small and large pimples, acne is a phenomenon that affects more than 80% of the population. Especially observed on teenagers’ skin and sometimes continuing into adulthood, this skin condition is the cause of many psychological and physiological discomforts. Acne can also leave scars on the skin that might require special attention in order to disappear.

What’s the cause of acne and its scars?

Hormonal changes are often to blame for the appearance of the white and red pimples that characterize acne. These skin imperfections are more often found in the back and on the face. Hypersecretion of sebum and blockage of the excretory duct lead to the production of comedones and pimples. While some people will suffer from it during adulthood, acne is a skin problem that occurs most frequently during puberty and adolescence.

Acne, after its disappearance, sometimes leaves marks on the skin that are called acne scars. Not unlike its onset, the disappearance of acne does not affect all skin types in the same way. While some people are lucky to see their pimples disappear quickly and inconsequentially, some people will notice the appearance of what are also called pigmentation scars.
