Acne scars or scars are the unwanted result of the healing process of acne skin. The inflammatory elements of acne are papules, pustules and cysts. If rupture of these elements occurs deep below the basement membrane zone of the skin, the healing process leaves a scar. If rupture of these occurs above the basal layer it can lead to discoloration that will then heal without scarring.
The most common areas of scars appearance are the face, back and chest and may also occur on the buttocks.
The best prevention of acne scars is timely and correct Acne Treatment by a specialized dermatologist, depending on the form of acne.
Avoiding pressure on black or whiteheads also helps, as putting pressure on comedones can transfer dead cells, oils and bacteria into deeper parts of the skin, increasing inflammation and leading to the development of large acne scars.
In many cases, however, despite prevention, the appearance of acne scars is inevitable.
Regardless of the way acne scars are treated, it is quite important to follow the advice of your dermatologist so that the treatment has a maximum effectiveness. Returning to daily activities depends on the chosen method of treatment, as well as the form of the scar. It is imperative in all cases to apply special reconstructive creams, as well as sunscreen to avoid skin discolorations.
