What are acne scars?
Acne doesn’t always produce scars. However, it may sometimes cause permanent marks or scarring on the skin. In some cases, you may experience slight discolouration which fades away as the skin heals. Sometimes, some people are left with severe scarring from acne that changes the entire texture of the facial skin. Effective acne scar treatment Melbourne can help considerably reduce scarring.
The three predominant types of acne include:
- Boxcar scars: Round craters or pits in the skin
- Rolling Scars: Bands of thick scar tissues which appear like ripples underneath the facial skin
- Ice pick scars: Deep Holes in the facial skin that appear like puncture marks
A person with severe acne is more likely to have scars on the facial skin with deeper spots like nodules and cysts. Scratching, picking or popping the posts further increases the risk of scarring. This could also damage the skin and enhance the risk of an infection.
In general, acne scars are permanent, therefore, it is important to consult a skin expert if you develop acne. Acne scar treatment Melbourne is the best way to prevent scarring on the skin by altogether stopping the formation of more spots on the skin.
