Acne scars can be unpleasant to look at and tend to make us feel terribly self-conscious. The appearance of frequent breakouts isn’t always due to our skin either. Certain climates have the effect of increasing sweating and exposing us to irritants that exacerbate acne. In most cases, relocating is out of the question. Therefore, finding a great treatment becomes essential to feeling beautiful again. Turner Medical Arts provides a range of effective treatment options for acne scarring. Our treatments are fast, potent, and long-lasting.
How Do Acne Scars Form?
Acne scars form as a result of acne that heals following a buildup of bacteria in our pores. Some people have worse acne than others due to hormonal and environmental issues. Just about everyone has had an occasional zit, but there are some of us who struggle with extreme flare-ups. Those in the latter category know that extreme flare-ups often lead to long-lasting scars. Acne scars form when our bodies rapidly release collagen to counteract bacterial damage. As a result of this rapid collagen release, our skin becomes thicker and less flexible. Some scars rise while others stay flat and jagged, leading to an unsightly, bumpy texture.
