Frequently Asked Questions
How do people get acne scars?
Surprisingly, all acne scars are NOT caused by picking at the outbreak. The skin on your face is extremely sensitive and if you suffer from extreme bouts of intense inflammation, such as what often occurs when you have cystic acne, hypertrophic acne scars will be the result.
Can acne scars heal naturally?
Yes, they can lessen in depth and contour over time without treatment altogether. However, there are a number of factors that can determine the period of time it takes for any existing acne marks and scars to fade. Not only does the severity of your acne have an impact but also your age, skin type, tone, and complexion can play a part in how long it can take.
Are acne scars permanent
To the relief of teens and adults all over the world, recent developments in the laser world mean the answer to the question “Are acne scars permanent?” is no, severe scarring from acne is no longer permanent.
How common is acne scarring?
Very common. About 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 will have acne, and one out of five of that population will have scarring. Teenagers are the hardest hit. Nearly 90% of them will get acne.
