How to remove acne and acne scarring from your face with the acne map
How do you find acne scars?
And if you’re one of the millions of people who have seen one or more on your face, how do you treat them?
These are questions that have been the subject of endless research and debate in the medical community.
However, the acne scar on your cheekbones, forehead and eyelids may have nothing to do with it, according to a new study by a team at Harvard Medical School and Yale University.
Their research is the first to suggest that removing acne scars on the forehead is not the best treatment for acne, and it may even be harmful, especially for those with severe acne.
The study, published online Jan. 25 in JAMA Dermatology, analyzed data from 6,743 people with acne, including 4,858 with at least one visible scar.
In the first study, which included data from 10,000 people, researchers compared skin texture, appearance and symptoms of acne scars to skin lesions of the same person without acne.
They also examined the frequency and severity of acne-related skin problems, including scarring.
The researchers found that patients with acne scars who had a higher prevalence of acne lesions were more likely to have more severe acne symptoms than patients with fewer acne lesions.
In fact, the researchers found significant associations between the presence of acne scar tissue and a greater number of acne related skin conditions.
The findings raise questions about the effectiveness of using acne-specific procedures on acne scars.
The findings could help physicians better assess whether a particular procedure is appropriate for a patient, said lead study author Maria DeLeon, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.
“For some people, they have scars, for others, they don’t.
But for some, they’re more likely than others to have a scar,” she said.
“This is very important information because we want to be able to identify patients who are most likely to respond to different treatment regimens.”
Researchers did not determine whether a patient’s acne scar severity, which is known to be a predictor of the severity of their acne, was a key predictor of a person’s response to an acne treatment.
“The finding that people with higher prevalence and/or scarring of acne have more acne-associated skin conditions, we think is important, because it suggests that it is the scarring and not the patient’s condition that is the most important factor in determining response to acne treatment,” DeLeon said.
In other words, patients with more severe skin conditions who have scarring may have more problems with acne.
“There’s some evidence that scarring is linked to a higher risk of acne, but that’s a lot of evidence,” she added.
The research also found that people who had scarring had significantly lower odds of developing skin conditions associated with acne including acne scars and rosacea, or acne-like lesions on the skin.
However this difference was not significant in patients who had no acne scar or no scars.
DeLeon and her colleagues also found a significant difference in patients with atopic dermatitis who had more acne scar, suggesting that the presence or absence of acne may affect a person in a way that predisposes them to developing atopic conditions.
However, the findings are not definitive.
The investigators acknowledge that the data does not represent a generalizable picture of how people with scars respond to treatment.
They have not been able to determine whether these patients respond differently to treatment than those with no scars or with a greater incidence of acne.
The authors say more research is needed to fully understand the role of acne on patients with skin problems and their responses to treatment and to find a way to better manage acne in these patients.
Dr. Shashi Jain, director of dermatology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, said that the findings support the idea that acne scars are part of a broader spectrum of skin problems.
“I think the real message here is that the scar is not a single problem, it’s part of the spectrum of symptoms that you have,” Jain said.
This study is important to our understanding of how to treat acne, he said.
For patients with moderate acne, a good treatment plan would be to work to reduce scarring, and for those patients, he suggested that a more aggressive approach could be to reduce the amount of scarring on the face.
For the study, researchers collected data from a nationally representative sample of patients with mild to moderate acne from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a survey conducted in 2012 and 2013 that measures people’s skin condition and skin health.
Researchers then identified patients who reported acne scars, including scars of the forehead and neck, in addition to the skin lesions.
They then compared scarring scores between the acne-treated and control groups.
The study found that acne scar removal in the acne group was associated with a reduction in scarring for people with atopy.
“These findings are important because acne scars can be the basis for
