What is acne?
Acne is a disease which is very common in young adults. Acne is taken from acme and acme is taken from a Greek dictionary and it means “spot”. Acne is the disease in which red spots are formed on your skin. It is because of the oil glands underneath your skin that transfers some dead cell through your pores to the surface of the skin, hence they show up. These can be formed anywhere most probably, your face, shoulders, chest and your back. Most of the people deal with acne when they are young adults, it is estimated that almost 80% of the people deal with acne in their teens and 20% deal with this when they are at their twenties.

The main problem is that when the person recovers from the acne and the acne leaves a scar on their body where the acne was formed (probably the face). There are many ways to treat these scars. Some acne scars can be treated through a surgery or resurfacing the part of the body where the acme had left its scars. The best way is to treat the acne when its formed until it recovers completely and leaves a scar on your skin, but some times its just too late and the acne leaves a scar on their skin, anyway there are several treatments to remove those scars as well. The type of your treatment depends upon the shape and size of your scar on your skin.
