The physical as well as the psychological effects of acne scarring are a difficult condition to deal

with for adults as well as for teenagers alike. Perhaps it is more so for teenagers than adults.

The medical fraternity are finding it very difficult to understand, more so treat, acne scarring.

Why does it have such a long lasting effect? And why is it so difficult to treat? Perhaps we will

never know - however doctors have turned to technology to remove acne scars rather than treat

it with medications.

Various kinds of acne leave different kinds of acne scars. There is good news though; acne

scars can be effectively and permanently treated. Doctors also advise a proper acne treatment

that needs to be carried out on a daily basis by the affected individual to prevent the return of

the scourge.

The first step in the treatment of acne is to understand the type of skin of the affected person,

the kind of acne that needs to be treated and the best treatment for the kind of acne being

treated. Acne scarring and the corresponding treatment varied from individual to individual,

mainly depending on the kind of skin being treated. Doctors find it difficult to understand what

skin type will be affected by acne and to what extent will the skin scar. Understanding this

condition is important for the effective treatment of any form of acne.

It is a common consensus that acne must be treated as early as possible in order to treat the

condition most effectively and prevent permanent scarring. Acne is not expected to be an

overnight procedure. Acne treatment lasts weeks and sometimes years depending on the

severity of the condition. This is shy it is important to treat the condition before it consolidates

and becomes hard to cure. Many people treat acne as and when it appears and takes

preventive measures; however some people find it hard to rid themselves of this ugly mess of

pimples and expert help is called for.

The crux of the matter is to prevent inflammation to occur if you want to prevent acne scarring.

Remember never to irritate an acne infected area; irritation will surely lead to acne scarring. If

you are prone to scarring from acne it is best to consult a skin specialist at the next outbreak of

pimples on you skin. Remember early treatment is the secret to prevent acne scarring.

Acne scars are of two types. Those scars caused by the loss of skin tissue and those caused by

formation of skin tissue. The scars that are formed by excessive tissue formation are known as

'kelloids' known as hypertrophc scars to the medical world. The term 'hypertrophy' refers to any

enlargement of growth on any tissue. This kind of scarring is caused by extra deposits of

collagen in skin tissue. This substance is produced when the skin reacts to an injury and over

production of it leads to scarring though this king of scar fades over time.

Scars formed when tissue is lost are very much like scars formed by an attack of chickenpox.

These are very common scars and equally hard or rather impossible to treat.

The best way to prevent acne scarring is to prevent the disorder itself. So seek medical help at

the earliest when you notice those infamous pinkish bumps on your skin.
