Chicken Pox and Acne Scar Treatments
The quest for a flawless complexion is a common goal. However, healthy and clear skin is made simple with the experts at Delete. To most, it seems that everyone besides themselves has perfect skin. With a majority of us having struggled with things like occasional breakouts to cystic acne, it is easy to fixate on our flaws. Skin care is a billion dollar industry, yet it simply can not fix the marks left by chicken pox or acne.
How Can Chickenpox Scar Your Skin?
Chickenpox, a highly contagious infection, can reach anyone at any age. With the majority of individuals having suffered through an outbreak at some point in their life, many have the scars as a reminder. Chickenpox, among other symptoms, causes blisters to form all over your skin. Excessive scratching of the irritating blisters damages the skin and leaves open wounds. Your body naturally heals those wounds by growing a thicker skin to protect the area, called “scar tissue.” Oftentimes it presents as indentation and discoloration of the skin, especially visible on your face and neck.
How Can Acne Scar Your Skin?
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. When the hair follicles (or “pores”) on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells, it is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and create infected bumps known as pimples. Red, inflamed pimples and cysts with hard nodes are the leading cause of acne scars. At Delete, we recommend PCA’s acne control regimen and peels to bring outbreaks under control. Acne scars are typically deep and narrow or “rolling” with a gradual depression. Did you know that nearly 40% of those with acne have some degree of scarring? Many acne scars result from a loss of collagen in the skin. Most acne discoloration fades in 12 months, but the discolored indentations remain. Acne scars are especially visible on the flat cheek area of your face, back of your neck, top of your shoulders, and the flat of your back.
