Is it possible to treat depressed scars?

With depressed scars, there are many treatment options now. You can do fat deposition or fractional lasers. Scarring will improve by 30-35% but it is very hard to get smooth skin again. The important thing is to treat early to prevent scarring.

What affects your skin type?

Skin type is very largely dependent on genetics. Some people are born with very good skin, some with acne-prone skin and some with very dry skin. Of course, environmental factors can also influence your skin type. If you are constantly using lots of products which are very harsh, or frequently washing your face that your skin becomes very dry and irritated, that can also affect the skin type.
