Acne occurs when there is an excessive bacterial buildup in the pores. Many people struggle with acne in their teenage years due to hormonal or environmental changes, but the problems may last for a long time after the original breakout. Acne scarring occurs when inflammation causes the wall of the pore to break down which causes either a scar or an indentation on the surface of the skin. When this occurs, it may become necessary to seek professional help to restore the skin to its original radiance.
