What Is Acne/Scarring?
Acne is a skin condition that takes place when your pores and oil glands are clogged and blocked with dead skin cells. This causes coloured spots, pimples and cysts to appear on the exterior of the skin. It can also result in whiteheads, blackheads or pimples.
Acne is extremely common, with around three-quarters of adolescents experiencing it in their teenage years, and most humans experiencing it at least once in their lifetime.
Acne can occur all over your body, but is typically most common on your face, neck and back. It is also common in areas of your body that are prone to sweat and heat, like behind your knees or your forehead.
Acne scarring can occur as a result of damage to the skin whilst acne is present. The scars can look different for each individual person, but generally have a white/grey/silver/pink tone and cover the entire, or part, of the area that is acne affected.
What Causes Acne/Scarring?
There are a number of explanations for the eruption of acne and scarring on the body. In majority of cases, acne begins in teenage years which indicates that it may be a result of hormonal changes in puberty.
Although, acne in mature aged persons can indicate naturally oily skin, genetics that are prone to acne or high amounts of dirt/dust/contamination on the skin.
Whilst some actions can be taken to prevent acne, such as regularly cleaning ones face with suitable lotions and clean materials, many cases of acne are unstoppable. For example, menstrual-related hormonal changes can influence acne, but are just a natural part of a woman’s life. Genetics that encourage acne are also imbedded into a human’s makeup and cannot be changed.
However, it is important to understand that professional skin clinics can help with the reduction of acne and scarring. In fact, in many circumstances, they have the ability to entirely eliminate acne.
