Inflammation plays a role in all stages of the development of
acne lesions – however, the trigger that causes this inflammation
is still unknown. To find this trigger, a new non-invasive technique
to detect follicles that are close to becoming an acne lesion
is needed. The author also note that there is a difference in
the types of inflammation in patients with scars from acne, as
compared to those who has non-scarring acne.
