Acne and scars can affect the health and appearance of your skin. Acne isn’t only a cosmetic concern. Many types of acne are painful and uncomfortable. Without proper treatment, acne can leave scars long after your lesions heal. At Rouge Aesthetics, the team offers multiple treatments to promote scar and acne reduction for clearer, healthier-looking skin.
Acne occurs when the hair follicles in your skin clog with sebum, bacteria, and dead skin cells. The type of acne that forms can help determine the best treatment for you. The most common types of acne are:
Blackheads form when the pores fill with debris but stay open. They appear as black specks on your skin.
Whiteheads occur when debris accumulates in your pores, which close and form a raised white bump.
Papules are inflamed red bumps that form on your skin. Papules don’t contain visible pus and typically don’t hurt unless irritated.
Pustules are pus-filled papules that can feel painful. Squeezing or popping pustules increases your risk of scarring.
Nodules are painful forms of acne that develop deep beneath the skin’s surface. They don’t contain pus and can take months to heal on their own.
Cysts are the most severe type of acne. Like nodules, they develop deep beneath the skin. Cysts contain pus and can lead to infection if popped.
Acne can leave behind many different types of scars, such as:
Atrophic scars appear pitted. The most common type is an ice pick scar, which can penetrate deep within the skin.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are raised. They form from a buildup of collagen on the skin’s surface during the acne healing process.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin (pigment) causes dark patches of skin during the healing process.
