Scars can heal
For some, acne is an embarrassment that ends with adolescence. But for others, long-lasting scars form, causing diminished self-confidence and insecurity that can even harm one’s relationships with others.
Infections that cause acne to form result in enlarged pores, sometimes to the extent that the follicle wall is damaged. When that damage is severe enough, the infection can spread, eventually causing a lesion that allows a scar to form.
