How do acne marks occur?
When skin produces excess sebum, it clogs the pores. This causes the accumulation of dead skin cells, sebum and bacteria. Over a few days, this erupts into a pimple. This can be a whitehead or blackhead. When an active pimple is poked or prodded, blood vessels break and cause inflammation. When the pimple begins healing, its pigmentation and texture differs from the rest of the skin, resulting in an acne mark.
What’s the difference between acne marks and scars?
Acne marks are formed when there is damage to the uppermost layer of the skin. It is within this superficial layer that the tone of the skin changes, spots form and turn red or brown in colour.
Acne scars on the other hand are the result of deep damage caused to normal tissue. When this happens, the body replaces this normal tissue with fibrous tissue. When too little of it is produced it causes a bump or a keloid and when too little of it is produced, it causes an indented scar.
