Acne is a skin condition often refered as pimples or zits. This includes whiteheads, blackheads, red, inflammed skin patches.  Acne occurs when pores become clogged which leads to the build up of dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells. Cystic acnes generally result in skin discoloration or 'icepick' scars - indentations in the skin's surface. Various treatments are availavle to treat the scars including physical, chemical & laser peelings, and subcutaneous incision.


It is a tiny opening in the skin made of a fold in the epidermis enters into the dermis. Human skin has millions of pores over the vast majority of the body, providing locations for hair growth, sweat and skin oil production. These, in turn, protect the body in different ways. Sweat helps to regulate temperature, oils protect the skin as does hair, which can also provide sensory input when touched.

They are inserted just under the skin. Staying in the plane between the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue, the needle is gently moved back and forth, helping level a scar by detaching the actual scar from the tethering bands. The blood which forms below the scar will actually help level it as well.
