Acne is an imbalance in the skin that causes pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and papules. Many people that have acne often pick and squeeze their pimples in an effort to eliminate excess pus, sebum, dirt and oil. Unfortunately, this is often ineffective (as the acne tends to come back) and can result in scarring. Even without any interference, acne can leave scars due to irreparable damage to the skin.
Scars are composed of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin in the event of abrasion, injury etc. They appear and feel different to normal skin due to the way that they are formed. Unlike regular skin, scars feature collagen that cross-links to form one-directional alignment. Not only do they affect the appearance and feel of the skin, but they prevent hair and sweat gland regrowth. They are also more susceptible to UV damage.
Acne scars can be removed safely and effectively thanks to a range of available treatment options. Removal is possible for various scar types and areas of the body, including back acne scar treatment.
