About Acne & Acne Scar Treatment
Acne is a common skin concern affecting men and women of all ages. Acne is the result of excess production of sebum, an oil naturally created by the body to moisturize and protect the skin. The overproduction of sebum, mixed with dirt and dead skin cells, can lead to blocked pores, resulting in acne. Acne can leave both emotional and physical scars on an individual. When damage from acne occurs, this is known as “acne scarring.” Acne scarring can leave damage on the surface, such as pitting or indenting the skin, or flat, discolored scars. Individuals afflicted with active acne combined with acne scars may find solutions in the treatments and combinations available.
