Acne breakouts typically penetrate the skin deeply, damaging skin and tissue below it. As soon as the acne clears, the body attempts to repair this damage. During the healing process, the body produces collagen, a substance that gives skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, a scar will develop. The kind of scar that develops depends on how much collagen is produced.
Clinical treatments are recommended based on the severity of your scars. Early prevention is important to prevent further scarring. It helps to boost one’s self confidence, career search and progress.
