Acne scars no longer have to be permanent at Innova Wellness Spa, where we provide aesthetic enhancement procedures without resorting to painful surgeries.
How does a person scar from acne?
Skin pores can get clogged with oil, dead skin cells, even bacteria — all of which can result in acne and skin blemishes, which can in turn lead to scarring. Pores suffer from inflammation and build up so much pressure that they can potentially burst. Once the pore wall bursts deeper within the skin tissue, infected debris leaks into deep tissues, creating larger, more prominent lesions.
Scarring occurs as the body creates collagen to repair the damage. Depending on skin type and other factors, the scarring can be relatively shallow and easy to correct. Where ruptures occur deep in the pore, scarring is more severe. The healing process creates significant changes in the texture and smoothness of the skin forming deep depressions or giving the skin a rolling wave-like appearance.
2 Categories of Scarring
- Hypertrophic scarring adds tissue and results from excessive collagen production during the healing process. Raised bumps and ridges around scars are brought on by healing fiber overproduction.
- Atrophic scarring forms around lost tissue and occurs as a result of tissue lost during the healing process. ‘Ice pick’ or ‘boxcar’ scars are common types of atrophic scarring. Ice pick scarring looks like tiny holes in the skin; boxcar scars are often larger and have vertical sides (most comparable to chicken pox scars).
