For some people scars is a right of passage or a full length story that you love to tell your friends. Many of the ones that we have occurred after we fell out of a tree, cut ourselves while on the job, or some other type of funny story that people love to hear about. Unfortunately not all scars have a good story behind them.

Face acne scars are the worst type of scars that people have to deal with and some of the more difficult types. Because they are on the person’s face they make it hard for the person to feel comfortable with themselves. Many of these people have self esteem problems and do everything they can to not be seen by other people.

Any type of scar is caused after the skin has been injured. The scars form as part of the healing process. Wounds that are superficial will usually have no scarring. It is only when the dermis part of the skin has been damaged that the scar will take shape on the surface of the skin.

Face acne scars are caused by several different things. They can be caused by the papule, pustule, an inflamed lesion, or a cyst. Lesions that are inflamed will cause scars when the pores have become large due to the large amount of oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. The pore will become swollen and this will cause the follicle wall to burst.

The scar will form when the wall breaks close to the surface of the skin. The lesion can be small and will heal quickly. The larger lesions are caused by a much larger break in the wall. During this time the material contained within will fall onto the dermis and immediately destroy any healthy skin tissue.

In order to repair the dermis the skin will produce new collagen fibers. Collagen is a type of fibrous protein that helps to make the skin strong and flexible. The new skin that appears is not as smooth as the original and will usually be misshapen.

Sometimes the scars are formed by an excessive amount of collagen production. This large amount of the fibrous protein will create a large amount of new skin that is raised above the surface of the skin. This type of face acne scars are referred to as keloid and hypertrophic.

Face acne scars can also be caused by the loss of skin tissue – which is usually caused by the inflammation of the skin. When there are deep breakouts the skin will have a harder time healing and will take much longer. The longer it takes the more likely the skin will scar.

One Response to “What Causes Face Acne Scars”

  1. My daughter got a scar on her face. She picked off a scab on her face and the resulting scar was bright red. I gave it some time, but the redness did not fade readily. I understand scars can fade over time, especially on kids; but since it was on her face, I did not want to take any chances. That it only might work was good enough for me.

    I’ve used the Dr. Max Powers Scar Serum regularly on her face for about a month and it is definitely faded, not so noticeable anymore.

    I also have a deep scar that is 35 years old right smack on the bridge of my nose. It’s not fading any more than it has. I decided to try it on that and also a recent burn scar on my arm. The scar on my arm is looking better. It’s still there but smooth and fading. The one on the bridge of my nose is deep. I think it looks better but it will be many months before I think I’ll truly know. I’ll be back to update at that time.

    For now, I think it does seem to help and really doesn’t hurt new scar formation. I definitely recommend the Dr Max Powers Scar Serum if you have a scar on your face and are looking to fade it.
