What Causes Acne Scarring?

Acne scars can emerge due to various factors. These scars are more likely to form when acne penetrates deep into the skin, causing intense inflammation, as seen in cysts or nodules. Additionally, aggressive methods of dealing with acne, like picking or popping, can worsen inflammation and contribute to scarring. Genetic predisposition also plays a role, with family history influencing the skin's tendency to scar. Understanding these triggers is crucial for managing acne and minimizing the risk of scarring, promoting healthier skin.

How Is Acne Scarring Treated?

Treatment options for acne scars vary depending on their type. Topical medications, microneedling, radiofrequency therapy, laser treatments, and surgical techniques are among the methods used to improve skin texture and appearance.
