Acne & Acne Scars
About Acne & Acne Scars
Acne is a skin condition that can cause whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples to form. Symptoms of acne may include:
Papules, which are small red bumps
Pustules, which are papules with pus at their tips
Nodules, which are solid, painful lumps under the skin
Cystic lesions, which are pus-filled lumps under the skin
Acne may form on the face, forehead, upper back, chest, and shoulders. It may be caused by excess oil production, clogged hair follicles, inflammation, and bacteria.
Scars can form on the skin after long-term acne has healed. To treat acne and acne scars, aestheticians may recommend facials and laser treatments.
