What is Acne?

Your skin has small holes called pores which may become blocked by oil, dead skin cells bacteria, and dirt. Due to this, you may develop a pimple or “zit.” It most commonly occurs on your face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. If you are having acne, you’ll usually notice pimples that are white or black in appearance. These blackheads and whiteheads are basically comedones. Some comedones develop inflammatory changes and turn red and these are more likely to give scarring to your skin.

Different types of acne lesions that can occur are:

Papules - tiny red, raised bumps due to inflamed or infected hair follicles.

Causes

Every pore on your skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle has two parts, a hair and a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland secretes sebum (oil), which goes up the hair, out of the pore, and onto the skin. It keeps your skin lubricated and soft. Multiple factors contribute to acne like

Acne Scars

Acne is an extremely common skin problem and most of the acne patients experience some degree of scarring. They are the result of altered healing response of the patient’s skin when the acne lesion clears.

Types of Acne Scar

Aberrant production and degradation of the collagen in dermis during healing leads to various types of acne scars like atrophic scars and hypertrophic scars.

Of these, atrophic scars are more common seen in 80-90% of cases while hypertrophic scars are less common. There are further different types of atrophic scars (ice pick, rolling and boxcar) and while planning the treatment the scar types are taken into account. Scarring response is commonly accompanied by pigmentary changes in the skin in the form of dark patches or redness.

Treatment

Acne scars need to be treated in order to improve one’s appearance and enhance the self esteem. With the advances in science, we can now treat acne scars effectively.

Patients should not scratch or pick their lesions as it irritates the lesions and then they take more time to clear and also chances of scarring and pigmentation increases.
