Acne Red Mark
Some spots on the skin may look like scars but are not scars for no trace of them will remain after a while. But even though they are not true scars and will disappear in time, they are visible and may cause embarrassment.
Macules or “pseudo-scars” are flat, red or reddish spots that are the final stage of most inflamed acne lesions. After an inflamed acne lesion flattens, a macule may remain to “mark the spot” for up to 6 months. When the macule eventually disappears, no trace of it will remain—unlike a scar.
Is discoloration of the skin at the site of a healed or healing inflamed acne lesion. It occurs more frequently in darker-skinned people, but occasionally is seen in people with white skin. Some post-inflammatory pigmentation may persist for up to 18 months, especially with excessive sun exposure.
Early treatment with a topical skin repair cream can minimize the development of post-inflammatory pigmentation. Topical treatment with BIOSKINFORTE cream or with BIOSKINCARE can quickly vanish those acne marks.
They both absorb quickly and are made from a natural organic serum for skin repair and skin regeneration collected from live creatures (without causing any type of harm to them).
They contain both natural antibiotic peptides that fight acne infection and bio-available enzymes and peptides that vanish red marks and prevent and repair scars.
Causes of Acne Scars
Scars form at the site of an injury. They are the visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. In the case of acne, the injury is caused by the body’s inflammatory response to sebum, bacteria and dead cells in the plugged sebaceous follicle.
Two types of true scars exist: (1) depressed areas such as ice-pick scars, and (2) raised thickened tissue such as keloids.
Occurrence of Scars
The occurrence and incidence of scarring is still not well understood, however. There is considerable variation in scarring between one person and another, indicating that some people are more prone to scarring than others.
Scarring frequently results from severe inflammatory nodule cystic acne that occurs deep in the skin. But, scarring also may arise from more superficial inflamed lesions.
Nodule or sometimes called an acne “cyst”: It is the most severe form of acne lesion. A nodule is a large, deep-seated, pus-filled, often painful lump. Acne with nodules often results in permanent scarring and requires treatment by a physician.
The Life History of Scars is not well understood.
Some people bear their acne scars for a lifetime with little change in the scars, but in other people the skin undergoes some degree of remodeling and acne scars diminish in size.
People also have differing feelings about acne scars. Scars of more or less the same size that may be psychologically distressing to one person may be accepted by another person as “not too bad.”
Those who are distressed by scars are more likely to seek treatment to moderate or remove the scars.
Biological Dissolution of Damaged & Scar Tissues
Repair of Acne scars
The wound healing process is comprised of three overlapping phases: inflammation, proliferation, and maturation.
During the inflammatory phase, blood vessels contract and red blood cells clot the wound while white blood cells swarm to the damaged area in an effort to clean up any contaminants and protect the site from infection.
Then, during the proliferate phase, both skin cells and connective tissue cells (fibroblasts) begin multiplying to repair the damage.
The fibroblasts form a framework upon which the skin cells can migrate into and fill in the wound. It is the balance between the rate of replication of fibroblasts versus skin cells that is important here.
If the fibroblasts replicate too quickly, they can form a dense network that is not as easily penetrated by the skin cells and that results in a large scar.
If the skin cells keep up with the fibroblasts, then little scar tissue is formed and the skin has a more normal appearance after the wound has healed. But sometimes the process does not yield new tissue and an eroded area is left over.
Here is where the bio-active ingredients of the natural organic snail secretions play an important role for they orchestrate a balanced recovery of all the structural elements of healthy skin.
During the maturation phase of a wound, also known as the remodeling phase, new collagen is formed to create a scar. Collagen is a fibrous protein which gives a new scar its characteristic bumpy look. With recovery, the collagen is broken down and the scar flattens and shrinks.
Scar maturation left on its own usually takes at least a year. The natural serum triggers the production of both collagen and elastin connective tissue and the breakdown of excessive deposition, speeding up the scar maturation process.
Acne Scar Removal
The horny layer of our skin is often compared to a brick-and-mortar construction: The large cells of the epidermis are packed tightly together, while the small spaces between them are filled with fats (lipids).
The design is foolproof: The corneocytes keep foreign material out, and the lipids make sure water stays in. The second layer (the epidermis) is about 80µm micrometres or microns thick. The third layer (the dermis) contains the capillaries and nerve endings and is several millimeters thick.
It is on this hard ground that most products are meant to work. Most skin-care products focus on moisturizing the ‘dead’ layer of the skin, the 10 microns or so that require water so they don’t feel dry, but that is not enough and in most cases it is deleterious for it ends wetting the skin too much.
The combination of tough stratum corneum layer and live epidermis makes it extremely difficult for external substances to penetrate skin. Traditionally, only small water-soluble molecules are able to diffuse slowly into the skin.
Physical exfoliation of 10 or so microns, specially of rough tissues and scars helps active ingredients to penetrate more easily the outer layer of the skin into the epidermis and the basal layer, while they also polish the surface and make it softer and look and feel more even.
If scars are indented, pitted or so called ice-pick scars the action of the enzymes in our biological organic serum combined with physical exfoliation by the abrading micro-crystals embeded in a lipid cream base is best.
BIOSKINEXFOL, our home microdermabrasion cream for acne scars uses tiny micro-crystals that, rubbed onto your skin regularly for some time, will polish away the upermost microns of damaged skin. It also includes the organic serum with enzymes that take away scar tissues while it speeds skin regeneration to increase the natural healing processes and thus achieve even better final results.
