WHAT ARE ACNE SCARS?

Skin is one of the largest organs and the most exposed organ that contains million of open pores that help to regulate body temperature, maintain skin pH balance, and hydration level. When skin pores are clogged due to sebum, dust, dirt, pollutants, and dead skin cells, it results in acne (commonly known as pimples) and flesh-colored bumps formation. Acne also occurs due to the hormonal imbalance or overactive production of oil (sebum) through the sebaceous glands that are present deeper inside the skin.
When acne starts to heal, they often leave behind acne scars. Although acne scars are not related to any major health problem, it may lower the self-confidence of the person through physical imperfections. The appearance of the acne scars increases over time and looks like an indented skin structure. Acne scars cause rough and uneven skin texture, and skin damage that cannot be healed naturally. Thus, a consistent dermatological method by skin experts can be of great help in reducing scars. Various techniques help to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.
