Will My Acne Scars Fade Or Disappear?

Firstly, it's important to understand the difference between acne marks and acne scars. 

Acne marks tend to be flat and either brown or red.  Acne scars are usually raised or indented and can appear worse as you age due to the natural reduction in collagen and elastin in the skin. 

Acne marks are the easiest to treat.  This hyperpigmentation may fade naturally after a few months as the skin heals. Acne scars will require a course of treatments to improve the texture of the skin.


What Causes Acne & Acne Scarring?

Changes in hormone levels are the most common cause of acne - particularly during puberty.  These hormonal changes can cause the grease-producing glands next to the hair follicles in the skin to produce abnormal amounts of sebum.  

The increased sebum levels can cause the skin bacterium P.acnes to become aggressive, causing the inflammation and pus most associated with acne.

Another side effect of hormonal changes is a thickening of the inner lining of the hair follicle which can cause pores to become blocked.
