Acne is a very common skin condition affecting people of all ranges of skin types, and of people of all ages. Acne can be caused by hormonal changes, genetics, hygiene and free-radical environmental factors, or as well as a combination of all of the above. Acne is commonly appeared on the face, but can also occur on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms.
Acne can appear in a variety of forms, differentiating from mild breakouts of blackheads and papules, to severe inflammation and pustules.
Acne scarring happens when there is a swollen, inflamed papule, pustle or cyst. These inflamed lesions occur because when the hair follicle becomes congested with dead skin cells and sebum, the pore becomes infected with bacteria, leading to inflammation and swelling, breaking the wall tissues of the hair follicle. When this happens, the collagen and connective tissue is broken, therefore leading to an irregular healing of the skin tissue.
