Acne scarring, if you know the struggle, you know. Enduring years of painful pimples, waiting for them to finally evacuate their over stayed welcome… only for them to leave their mark. It’s like having an annoying lodger who finally moves out, only they’ve left their belongings behind! When we hear the word scar, we think of forever, but in this case, it doesn’t need to mean forever. In this blog, we are going to look at what causes acne scarring and the best dermaroller for acne scars.
How does acne scarring occur?
“Acne scars are most often the product of an inflamed lesion, such as a papule, pustule, or cyst. Inflamed blemishes occur when the follicle, or pore, becomes engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. … The infected material spills out into the dermis and destroys healthy skin tissue.” Taken director from www.medmd.com
Let’s look at scarring explained…
Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue.
To note, for scarring on the body (especially for deeper, more severe scarring.) we would recommend to have a consultation with a professional to look at the best form of treatment for reduction/removal. The dermaroller may however be recommended for home use in between treatments.
