If you are struggling with the presence of acne scarring on your face, and if you thought the condition was something you would have to learn to live with, you should be pleased to know that acne scar treatments are available. Those “permanent” scars do not have to be so permanent after all.
Individuals respond to acne in various ways. A case of acne that may be no big deal for one person may turn out to be devastating to another person who has a similar condition. In addition, there are different types of acne. When you combine these two factors, it becomes easier to understand how each case is different.
Comedonal acne is the basic, non-inflammatory type that is accompanied by the presence of blackheads and whiteheads. Much of the time, the development of this kind of acne can be attributed to hormonal changes that cause the skin to produce more oil. As a result, the pores can become blocked and blackheads and whiteheads will show up as a result.
Acne that advances to the next stage will become inflammatory acne. When this happens, there will be some redness of the skin along with some uncomfortable burning sensations. Acne that reaches this stage often does so because the efforts to treat it with over-the-counter products have failed. Therefore, professional treatment is necessary to get it under control before it worsens.
Acne can reach the point of becoming infected, when it develops into cystic acne. This is when you are at serious risk for acne scarring. Too many people have put off seeking treatment to control their acne until it was too late. As a result, they have acne scarring. If you are in this situation, you may want to learn more about our various acne scar treatments.
