The appearance of acne scarring can be a painful reminder for the many individuals who suffer from active acne. When acne penetrates the skin deeply, damage can occur to the tissue. As the skin begins to clear the acne, the body attempts to repair the damage. During this healing process, collagen is produced, which is a protein that gives the skin support. If during this process too little or too much collagen is produced, then a scar can occur. Additionally, an individual's likelihood to scar can depend on a number of reasons, including genetic variables and trauma to the skin (i.e. picking). These scars may diminish an individual's self-esteem, and Dr. Day wants to help.
