A Look at the Causes of Acne Scarring

Acne is among the most common dermatology-related complaints. But as troublesome as pimples are, the scars that can result are even more frustrating. Watch this video to learn how acne scars form. The dermatology expert featured here explains that scarring is the result of inflammatory processes in the dermis, which is the second layer of skin.

When a pus-filled cyst or pimple ruptures, the pus will then leak into the dermal tissue. This can damage healthy tissue, and the body’s attempt to heal the damage results in scar tissue. Continue watching this video to find out how the different types of scar tissue are formed.
