Advanced Acne and Acne Scar Treatments

Skin concerns like acne and acne scar are related to the hormonal imbalance, hair follicles, and oil glands of the face, neck, and chest. Acne and acne scars can affect almost all teenagers and even adults. Factors like hormonal imbalance, bacterial infection, dirt, stress, certain medications, wrong cosmetics application, lack of skin hygiene, pollution, and sun damage can cause acne or acne scarring.

This makes the affected area of the skin dark compared to the normal color of the skin. Melasma, freckles, sun spots, liver spots, hyperpigmentation, are the most common types of pigmentation.
