Scarring is a natural part of the healing process and occurs on the skin after the biological process of wound repair. A scar is essentially an area of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin after a wound has healed. Long-term acne scars are common and require a specific treatment process to ensure they go away.
How to treat it
Treatment options for scarring depend on the types of acne scars you have. There are procedures and skincare products that can aide in the process of skin cell regeneration.
