What Causes Acne and Acne Scarring?

Acne, a common skin condition, is often caused by the blockage of hair follicles with oil and dead skin cells. These blockages can result in the formation of pesky spots and pimples. While the exact causes of acne are still being studied, several factors have been identified as contributors:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Genetics  
  • Diet  
  • Stress
  • Certain medications  
  • Exposure to certain irritants

Aside from the presence of acne, individuals may also experience acne scars. These scars occur when the skin is damaged as a result of severe acne lesions. Several factors can influence the likelihood of developing acne scars. The severity and duration of acne play a significant role, as more persistent or severe acne is more likely to leave scars.  

Additionally, genetics and age can also affect an individual's susceptibility to scarring. Those who are ageing, for example, may have a decreased ability for skin regeneration, making them more prone to developing acne scars. Understanding the causes and factors contributing to acne and acne scarring is essential for effective prevention and treatment. We tailor our Dubai acne treatment to address the root cause of your acne, to prevent it coming back and helping to restore soft, clear, and supple skin.

What are the Different Types of Acne?

Acne affects millions of people worldwide. There are several different types of acne, each with their own unique characteristics. Some of the most common types of acne include:

Whiteheads:

Arrow

These small, raised bumps can develop when hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells, and have a white or yellowish head.

Blackheads:

Arrow

Open pores that appear black as a result of the oxidation of the oil and dead skin cells blocked inside. Blackheads are NOT caused by dirt.

Papules:

Arrow

Small, red bumps that can be slightly painful and tender to the touch. Papules occur when the walls of the hair follicles become inflamed.

Pustules:

Arrow

Similar to papules, but have a white or yellowish pus-filled centre. Pustules are formed when the hair follicle wall breaks down.

Nodules:

Arrow

Large and painful lumps that develop beneath the skin. They are formed when the hair follicle becomes deeply inflamed and can take longer to heal than other types of acne.

Cysts

Arrow

The most severe type of acne, these deep, pus-filled lesions are often painful and can cause scarring. Removing cysts can be a prolonged process as they can take several weeks to heal.

What are the Different Types of Acne Scars?

For those who have battled with acne, the lingering concern of acne scars is common. These scars can be classified into various types, depending on their severity and appearance. Some of the most common acne scars include:

Ice Pick Scars

Arrow

These tiny holes on the skin are deep, narrow, and sharply defined. They form as a result of the loss of collagen and elastin, leaving indented marks.

Boxcar Scars

Arrow

Boxcar scars, distinguished by their rectangular shape and sharp edges, are relatively shallower than ice pick scars, and minimising their appearance can be an ongoing challenge.

Rolling Scars

Arrow

With a "rolling" appearance, these scars create a wave-like effect on the skin. They are broad, shallow, and caused by scar tissue formation underneath, resulting in an uneven skin surface.

Hypertrophic Scars

Arrow

Raised and thickened, hypertrophic scars occur when the body produces excess collagen during the healing process. Usually red or pink, they are primarily found on the chest, back, shoulders, and jawline.

Keloid Scars

Arrow

Similar to hypertrophic scars, keloid scars can extend beyond the boundaries of the original acne blemish. More prevalent in individuals with darker skin tones, they can become itchy or painful.
