Treatment for Acne Scars in Brantford Ontario

Acne scars are the result of inflammation of acne blemishes. The acne pore swells and a breakdown occurs in the wall of the pore. Some acne blemishes are small and the scars created are shallow and heal quickly. When acne breakouts penetrate the skin deeply, they damage the skin and the tissue beneath it. As the acne clears, the body tries to repair this damage it can result in scarring.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Collagen. During the healing process, the body produces Collagen, a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much Collagen, you will see a scar. The type of scar depends on how much collagen your body makes.

Inflammation. The greater the inflammation on the skin, the more likely scarring is to occur.

Deep Acne Breakouts. These can take a long time to heal which also increases the chance of scarring.
