What Causes Acne?
If you are thinking that not taking proper care of your face gave you that ugly acne, dump that thought. Because your hormones influence the occurrence of acne. They make your skin produce more oil. And when a layer of dead skin cells accumulates on the pores, you get acne.
For a few people, acne diminishes with age, and for some, it gets severe, and this is due to the function of your immune system and other genetic factors
Causes of Acne Scars
Acne can be classified into two subtypes – Non-Inflammatory and Inflammatory.
Whiteheads and blackheads usually fall under the noninflammatory subtype, while papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts are the inflammatory types of acne.
Among these types, it is inflammatory acne that tends to leave behind scars and marks.
Inflamed acne blemishes occur when your pores become engorged as a result of excess oil, dead cells, and bacteria clogging them. This leads to the swelling of the pores, which causes the follicle walls to expand and break.
If this rupture occurs close to the surface of your skin, the resulting acne lesion is usually minor and heals quickly. However, if the break on the follicle is deep, the lesion will be more severe, and the infected material may leak out into the dermis, destroying healthy skin tissues.
Types of Acne Scars
The most common types of acne scars are:
• Ice-Pick Scars: Narrow, deep, and pitted scars
• Rolling Scars: Broad, depressed scars with slanting edges
• Boxcar Scars: Broad scars with sharp edges
• Atrophic Scars: Flat, thin, and depressed scars
• Hypertrophic Scars: Lumpy and thick scars
