Acne Scar Reduction

Acne is a common skin disorder that occurs during puberty. It is an infection of the skin, caused by changes in the sebaceous glands. The most common form of acne is called acne vulgaris, which means "common acne". The redness comes from the inflammation of the skin in response to the infection.


Oils from the glands combine with dead skin cells to block hair follicles. Under the blocked pore, oil builds up. Skin bacteria can then grow very quickly. This infection makes the skin become swollen and red, which becomes visible. The face, chest, back, and upper arms are most common places for acne to happen.


Acne is common during puberty, when a person is turning from a child into an adult, because of high levels of hormones. Acne becomes less common as people reach adulthood.


Sebum is created by the oil glands which help carry the dead skin cells through the follicles, bringing them to the surface of the skin. The same time, hairs grow out of the follicles, and when there is a blockage in the pathway, accumulation of oil under the skin increases, pimples begin to grow and form.


Acne is a serious problem among teens and adults. If it is not treated appropriately, an acne will lead to an acne scar, leaving the skin to have unsmooth surface and enlarged pores.
