What are acne scars?
Acne, a chronic inflammatory skin condition, is characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Mild acne is classified as whiteheads and blackheads. In many instances, these may develop into an infection in the skin pore resulting in a pimple. Acne lesions or pimples happen when the hair follicles or “pores” on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. A plugged follicle is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and create the red bumps and pus-filled red bumps known as pimples. Often when these pimples pop or fade, they leave behind a scar. Scarring can range from mild to severe. It can last for a few months, or years.
