Acne Scars Ė Getting Rid of Bad Memories! Written by Peter Crump
Acne scars can often be final reminder of a bad time in life of a personís skin. Though acne is one of most common skin disorders, most former patients feel no need to display their scars like war wounds from a hard won battle, and once sufferers have achieved clear skin they have longed for so long, they move swiftly into a new fight Ė how to remove, or at least lessen, their acne scars.
Just as there are different types of acne, there are also different types of acne scar. While painful cyst type acne usually leaves scarring of some kind, some former patients find themselves with minimal damage after suffering with this type of condition, while others who have had more superficial blemishes find that they scar badly. Scars are caused by both build-up of excess tissue and by loss of tissue due to acne, and type of treatment that is appropriate will vary from patient to patient. But medical advances have led to a number of new developments, which means that there is even an effective treatment for deep acne scars available.

Baby acne can occur in very young babies of 2 or 3 weeks, more commonly boys, up until around 6 months or so. It appears on various parts of babyís body such as forehead, cheeks and chin, or more rarely bottom or back, and appears as small white spots on skin. Or it could look like a red rash with raised bumps.
