Fighting the effects of acne can be a real struggle for many. Even after finding a treatment to tackle the outbreaks, many acne sufferers are then left with acne scarring. The level of scarring depends on the severity and depth of the acne outbreaks, but any amount of scaring on the face can have a big impact on self-confidence.
Acne scars cause the texture of the skin to become rough as well as affecting the pigmentation. They are formed when an acne breakout penetrates deep into the skin and results in damage to the tissue below. Many people suffering from acne scarring seek treatments to reduce the appearance and leave their skin smooth and soft once again.
