Acne and Acne Scarring
Commonly affecting the face, neck, chest and back, Acne is usually a result of blocked pores.
These blockages are most likely to be a combination of dead skin cells and excess sebum, resulting in the development of blackheads, whiteheads or pus-filled pimples.
Acne is most frequently seen in adolescents and young adults, with women in their forties also being common sufferers, as changes in hormonal levels can be a contributory factor.
Many people who are affected by Acne experience feelings of embarrassment and low self-confidence, due to the nature of its visible presence, with the condition often varying in degrees of severity as well as being prone to impromptu flare-ups.
It is often tempting for a person affected by Acne to give in to the temptation to pick or squeeze the spots. Not only does this increase the risk of spreading the condition further or causing an infection, it can also lead to the development of developing scars.
An outbreak of Acne can leave behind small indentations on the face. These marks can be more pronounced when the spots are picked at, as it can cause larger disruption / trauma to the skin. Although scarring generally fades over time, it is no guarantee that it will completely disappear.
