Acne Scarring


Acne is a common skin condition and can be present on the face, back, neck and chest. Though the appearance of acne can improve on its own, in some individuals acne scarring can occur. There are many different types of acne scars some of which are more difficult to treat than others. Acne scarring can affect your self-esteem and confidence because acne scarring can be quite disfiguring.
