Estimated to affect approximately 80% of people aged 11-30, acne is a very common skin condition that most people will suffer from at one point in their lives or another. Often confused with regular breakouts, acne leads to oily and congested skin, spots, and inflammation. Although it is most common to experience acne in the teenage years due to hormonal ages, it can often flare up in adulthood too.
Acne itself does resolve itself in a few years for most people, however, the scars this skin condition leaves behind last much longer and are far more difficult to deal with.
What Causes Acne Scars?
Acne scars are caused by damage to the skin, either by the breakouts themselves or where someone has attempted to pop their breakouts or has picked at them. Unfortunately, no matter how gentle you are with your skin, acne can still lead to scarring, leaving behind an unwelcome reminder of the condition long after it has cleared.
Acne scarring can be unsightly and can, unsurprisingly, cause self-confidence issues for many people. Lighter scarring will eventually fade away on its own, but pitted, depressed and raised scarring requires more than homecare products in order to be dealt with effectively. While some people can eventually accept their scarring, others choose to seek professional treatment. Whichever option is the right choice for you, it’s always worth knowing what your options are when it comes to acne scar removal.
