First, Why do People Get Acne Scars?

Acne scars are the results of cystic lesions under the skin that have complications in connecting with the skin’s surface. As a result, inflammation flares up and is trapped and confined to the isolated area.  These cystic pimples usher an influx of white blood cells due to enhanced enzymes in the area that lead to mutilation. The skin naturally responds by trying to heal itself thus causing a scar to form.
