The scars left by the acne appear to be a double punishment, the patient first passes his adolescence with acute outbreaks of acne, comedones, pustules, nodules, etc.
These typical acute acne lesions not treated properly end in scars.
To better understand this process as we understand first is acute acne.
Acute Acne is caused by the obstruction, output the contents of the pilo sebaceous gland. This blockage causes retention of sebum and dead cells.
Dilation of the gland in the skin manifests as multiple grains.
The sebum and dead cells retained in the sebaceous follicle support the growth of bacteria, then infection occurs, pimples become red and hot.
The severity of acute acne ranges from milia, famous little black points, to pustules and large inflammatory nodules.
These processes affect to varying degrees the skin and subcutaneous tissue, causing scarring of varying degrees ranging from small depressions in the skin to large depressed scars.
Inflammatory nodules are usually those who have far deeper and extensive scarring.
The best way to treat acne is to prevent these scars effectively treating acute acne.
