How to Prevent Acne Scars

Acne scars are an unwanted and often permanent side effect of the skin’s healing process after a nasty breakout. Though many acne wounds will heal without permanent scarring, it is when the dermis is damaged by constant picking or severe cystic acne that visible scars appear.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars mostly the result of inflamed lesions on the skin. Blemishes become inflamed when the pore becomes engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pore swells up and breaks the follicle wall, but the deeper the break, the more likely scarring is to occur.
