Acne & Acne Scarring

What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It typically appears as pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders. Acne can range from mild to severe and can cause various forms of skin irritation and inflammation.

Several factors contribute to the development of acne, including:

Excess oil production: Increased production of oil (sebum) by the oil glands in the skin can lead to clogged pores.​


Hormonal changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, particularly during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, can increase oil production and contribute to acne development.


Certain medications: Some medications, such as corticosteroids and oral contraceptives, can affect hormone levels and potentially worsen acne.


Diet: Although the relationship between diet and acne is still debated, some studies suggest that certain foods, such as dairy products and high-glycemic-index foods, may exacerbate acne in some individuals.

What is Acne Scarring?

Acne scarring refers to the permanent marks or indentations left on the skin after severe acne lesions heal. These scars can vary in appearance and may manifest as depressions (atrophic scars), raised areas (hypertrophic scars), or discoloration (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or erythema).
