Acne Treatments and Acne Scar Removal

Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Areas of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and greasy skin are evident, and often times result in scarring once the acne has healed. Genetics is thought to be the cause in 80% of cases. Diet and cigarette smoking as contributors are unclear but it would be prudent to not ignore them.

Chronic acne breakouts is challenging to treat as the individual is required to be very disciplined in keeping up with the prescribed acne treatment regimen and this can sometimes require many years of commitment to the treatment regimen. Eventually the commitment and dedication does pay off and you are able to eradicate or get your acne breakouts under control.
