Acne is a common skin condition that plagues many people, young and old. One of the side effects of acne is scarring, which can be due to a variety of factors. Some forms of acne scarring are permanent while some fade over time. Luckily, Executive Medical provides a range of FDA-approved treatment options for dealing with acne and acne scarring.
How Does Acne Scarring Occur?
Acne scars generally form when there is damage or injury to the skin from inflammation. When there is inflammation, your body sends blood and plasma to the area in order to begin the healing process. In doing so, collagen is created which gives additional strength to skin tissue. This can cause an abnormal buildup of collagen resulting in a mark on the skin. This abnormal buildup of collagen is what causes scarring from acne.
