Acne scars are a constant reminder of your break-out days when pimples tormented your skin. They are not only a constant irritant during adolescence but also a heavy social burden causing stress and sometimes even depression. However, while the condition does mostly show up in adolescents, especially around puberty in some cases it may extend into adulthood. It is important not to underestimate acne because it is a condition that escalates quickly and easily, leading to the problem of acne scars on face.
What is acne?
Acne is a chronic skin condition that occurs due to inflammation of the sebaceous glands leading to the formation of pimples, lumps or nodules which eventually get inflamed, tender or sometimes even infected.
Causes of acne:
- Excess oil production by sebaceous glands
- High bacterial load on the skin
- Clogging of sebaceous glands by dirt/pollution
- Hereditary influences
- Hormonal changes (such as an increase in testosterone levels)
Manifestations of acne:
While acne most commonly occurs on the face, it can also appear across the body on the chest, shoulders, back, neck and upper arms. This is because these areas have a high concentration of sebaceous glands.
Depending on the severity of the condition, acne could manifest itself in varying degrees of intensity:
- Blackheads and Whiteheads
- Pustules (Pus-filled lesions)
