Acne comes in different forms:
mild acne: which is the granites with a white dot or a black spot that most of us have several times
moderate acne: which includes inflamed and red pimples, which are called papules, and red pimples with a white center, which are called pustules
serious acne: which causes the appearance of nodules (cysts or lumps painful and full of pus) under the skin. The most serious scars are caused by the most severe forms of acne and the nodules are more likely to leave permanent scars more than other types of acne.The best thing you can do is to seek acne treatment as necessary and thus avoid more serious acne and more scars. If you have nodules, consult your doctor or dermatologist for treatment.
Acne scars treatment Most of the time, the reddish or brownish acne marks that remain once the granite disappears without treatment. However, if you flush or burst the granites, you can increase the risk of scarring.

deep and narrow scars
Slight scars and severe scars: Treatments depending on the seriousness of the scars. In some cases, a doctor or dermatologist may recommend a microdermabrasion or chemical peel to help improve the appearance of scarred areas. These milder treatments can be done directly in the office.
If you have scars from previous acne breakouts, you have several options:Facial rejuvenation: This procedure can be done in the doctor's or dermatologist's office. The laser removes the damaged upper layer of the skin and affirms the intermediate layer, which leaves the skin softer. It can take a few minutes to an hour. The doctor will try to relieve the pain by first numbing the skin with local anesthesia. It takes 3 to 10 days for the skin to heal completely.
Dermabrasion: In this treatment a diamond instrument or a rotating wire brush is used to wear away the surface of the skin. As the skin heals, the flaky layer is replaced by a new smoother layer. When the dermabrasion is repeated, the skin takes a little longer to heal: in general, 10 days to 3 weeks.
Fractional laser therapy: This type of treatment acts at a deeper level than laser rejuvenation or dermabrasion. Since fractional laser therapy does not damage the upper layer of tissue, the healing time is shorter. A person who has received this type of treatment will simply look as if he had burned with the sun for a couple of days. In the case of scars with a gradual depression, doctors sometimes inject material under the scar to raise it and leave it at the level of normal skin. Finally, in some cases, the doctor may recommend surgery to remove very deep scars.
