What is Acne?
Acne is a common inflammatory skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with sebum (oil and dead skin cells), resulting in whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Constant breakouts tend to be most common among teenagers, though it can affect people of all ages. Acne can be painful, distressing and can have a significant impact on a person’s confidence.
Acne scaring affect up to 95% of the people who suffer from acne vulgaris. Scarring is formed due to abnormal healing response, following dermal inflammation. Acne scars are classified based on excess collagen deposition or lack of it at the site of the acne lesion.
