What’s the Difference Between Acne and Pimples?
The difference between acne and pimples is that acne is a disease and pimples are one of its symptoms. Acne is a condition affecting the skin’s hair follicles and oil glands. Beneath your skin, pores are connected to glands that make an oily substance known as sebum.
What is Acne Scars?
Acne is an inflammatory process which heals like wound with repair. Depending on the persons body response, extent and depth of inflammation different kinds of scars are produced.
In early acne stages i.e.; comedonal acne stage the inflammation is not there and hence they heal without scars.
But once inflammation reaches deep dermis as with pustular and nodulocystic acne, wound healing process starts that results in scarring.
