What is Acne Scarring?

Your body produces collagen to heal the areas affected,however there is a higher chance of post-inflammatory pigmentation and pitted scars. There is a risk of overproduction of collagen, resulting in raised scars. Without appropriate sun protection during the skin healing process, the skin will become damaged and the melanocytes will overproduce to protect the area, resulting in dark circles or patches forming (Post-inflammatory pigmentation) this is commonly associated with acne sufferers.
