This stimulates your oil glands to produce more oil, which blocks your hair follicles.Impaired shedding of skin cells: Your skin sheds away dead skin cells to allow the production of new skin cells. Abnormal shedding of skin cells can irritate your hair follicles by causing dead skin cells to build up.An abnormal increase in the number of bacteria in your skin: Propionibacteria acnes are the bacteria that cause acne. Normally, they live on your skin and do not cause any harm. However, if their population grows out of control, they can irritate the lining of your skin pores.Treatment options for acneDuring your consultation, we will discuss the following procedures for you to know more about your acne scar treatment options:Laser: This procedure makes use of lasers to remove damaged skin by breaking down scars and stimulating the production of a protein called collagen. Laser treatment is recommended for patients with severe acne scars.Radiofrequency needling: It makes use of controlled radiofrequency energy which is delivered via small needles. This increases the production of collagen in areas of scarring, breaks down scar tissues, and stimulates the growth of new skin cells.Chemical peels: This procedure uses a special type of acid to peel away the outermost layer of your skin. As your skin heals, new healthy cells replace the areas of scarring.Subscision: This surgical procedure makes use of a special needle that is inserted in your skin to break strands of scar tissue. During the wound healing process, the broken scar tissues are naturally absorbed by your body.The type of treatment that you will receive will depend on the degree of your acne scarring.
