Acne Scars

Acne is one of the great equalizers in this life; it affects people at just about any age and from any economic status or lifestyle. You might hear about celebrities spending thousands of dollars on treatments only to continue suffering from acne and skin blemishes. Boston Common Podiatry, Skin & Wellness provides cutting edge Cutera XEO laser skincare treatments, over 20 aesthetic enhancement procedures that can help you achieve a clear and radiant complexion.

Causes of Acne

There are four main contributors to a case of acne:

  • Excessive Oil Production
  • Dead Skin Cells
  • Clogged Pores
  • Bacteria

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars are usually the product of an inflamed lesion (papule, pustule, or cyst). Inflamed blemishes occur when a follicle (or pore) becomes clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells, or bacteria (or some combination of the three). The pore will begin to swell, which causes a break in the follicle wall, resulting in acne lesions.
