The reason for the appearance of acne is increased activity of sebaceous glands of the skin and increased production of fat cells. During a person’s puberty, the number of sex hormones rapidly increases in the body Internal anxiety, stress, emotional experiences can further activate the action of these hormones, which activates the appearance of acne (pimples). Fat cells, their accumulations and dead skin cells stick together and form plugs, which then clog skin pores — white or black blackheads, and youthful and adolescent persons start having an acne problem. Favorable conditions are created for faster reproduction of skin bacteria, which cause inflammation and infection of the skin.
Acne rashes most often appear in the central part of the face, chest, shoulders and back area, in places where the sebaceous glands are located most often.
Improper nutrition (high in fatty, fried, carbohydrate-rich foods), constant stress, fatigue, cold legs, endocrine diseases, improper skin care or cosmetics that clog up pores, as well as certain medicines can provoke or cause acne. There are many reasons for it and it is important to turn to specialists in time and start treatment.
After the acne is gone, a scar on the skin is a natural process of healing for damaged skin. Thanks to modern laser technologies, these scars are treated, leveled out and removed.

Various types of scars can form after the healing of wounds. The most common types of scars:
- Hypertrophic scars;
The most common type of scars. They are formed after a thermal or chemical burn, especially in children’s age. Such scars are wide, bright red, hard, bulging. People with such scars frequently feel itching, sometimes pain. Hypertrophic scars begin to form 2-6 weeks after skin damage. The process takes an average of 18-20 months.
- Keloid scars;
Keloid scars are a rarer type of scars. Scars of this type are formed as a result of an increased reaction of the body to damage to the skin. During the healing process, the body at the site of the wound promotes excessive production of collagen, resulting in the formation of a larger scar than in the standard case. These scars often extend beyond the wound, are rough, dark red, markedly protruding above the skin.
- Atrophic scars;
Such scars look like small recesses in the skin. They are most often formed after the development of Acne and after Chickenpox. The reason for their occurrence is insufficient amount of connective tissue, after the disappearance of acne.
- Contracture scars;
These scars are formed with a strong burn of the skin. Scars of this type cause not only aesthetic problems, but also may limit the mobility of the damaged part of the body (e.g. in joints areas) since the skin has contracted after healing.
