What is acne scarring and how can you treat it?

Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibres. These repairs usually aren’t as smooth and flawless as the original skin.

Things to help reduce acne scarring, one of the major causes of heavy acne scarring is when the individual picks at the scar especially with unwashed fingers and nails where  bacteria can increase the risk of cysts forming.
