Facial acne scars as opposed to body scars should be distinguished in terms of treatment. Also patients tends to be more self conscious toward any changes in their facial complexion. Scarring usually occurs following an injury (accident, surgery, burn, acne) when multiple layers of the skin has been affected. On occasion raised pink hypertrophic facial scars can result in severe disfigurement following acne inflammation. However, most facial acne scars are of atrophic nature, depressed lesions. Facial lesions are more readily healed following an inflammation due to richer circulation of the area. In contrast, body scars tend to be more stubborn and less responsive to different treatments. Once they are to be treated, it should be noted that there is no way to remove facial scars completely. The goal is to improve the appearance of face and body skin scars by minimizing its prominence. Skin color and type, age, and the type of scarring, are all important factors that must be considered.
Freckles are a form of skin hyperpigmentation, produced by an increase of melanin pigment within basal melanocytes. In freckles, there is no hyperplasia of melanocytes, rather increase in melanin within melanocytes is observable. Freckles are seen as maculopapular lesions, brownish in color.

Our skin care line offers many formulations which target freckles and age spots, among them, scars treatment serum is very effective in eliminating freckles and even toning the skin.
Age spots are another form of facial acne scars with hyperpigmentation, more commonly seen in fair skin individuals and appear as maculopapular lesions on sun exposed areas. Overproduction of melanin or decrease in its elimination may cause this clumping of melanin in epidermis. Aging and prolonged sun exposure are among the primary causes, however, role of genetic factors can not be overlooked. They are more commonly seen on the face, back of the hands and other areas more subject to sun exposure.
