Acne exocriee is a skin condition that is initially caused by acne but then develops by the constant squeezing and picking of pimples. More common in females, especially at times of stress or other negative emotion, picking pimples a habit that is bad for your healthy skin. Although the whitehead, blackhead, or comedone may be removed, it’s not a good way to get rid of it. Eventually, the pimple goes away but the person continues to pick and scratch at the spot, increasing the risk of infection and leaving scratch marks as well as scars.
As a result, acne excoriee is really not acne at all, since the pimple has gone away, but primarily caused by the person excessively picking at their spots. It is characterized by redness, inflammation, soreness, and unsightly scarring – all of which can be improved in appearance with a skin treatment such as Toronto Fraxel Skin Resurfacing. Your skin can be smoother, more even-toned, and scarring less prominent. Cal us to book your consultation for Acne Excoriee Treatment in Toronto.
