Have you suffered from acne in the past and now have the scars to prove it? Then you are certainly not alone, as this common skin condition affects one in five former acne sufferers.
Acne is the world’s most common skin complaint, impacting the majority of people at some point during their lifetime. Acne’s causes can range from hormones and stress, to the environment and skincare routines. It’s most commonly found on the face, chest, back and neck, which are the areas that former acne sufferers will often be left with noticeable scarring.
So what causes acne scars? When an acne blemish has inflamed, sometimes the contents can spill into the surrounding tissue and cause a deeper scar, as the skin responds by forming new collagen fibres. So what does acne scarring look like? There are two main forms, either an indentation in the surface of the skin or a raised scar on the surface of the skin.
