What are scars?
A scar is a mark or discoloration of the skin often associated with the healing of some type of injury to the skin. The injury needs to be deep enough to include the deep layer of the skin known as the dermis. Injuries causing scars can include cuts, burns, infections, surgical incisions, acne and many other reasons.
Scars form because the skin, in order to heal, produces a protein known as collagen. Collagen is produced to repair the damage to the skin.
Scars can be flat and pale or they can also be raised and colored. Basically scars can fall on a continuum from flat and pale to raised and colored and can also be a variety of shapes. Raised scars, also known as hypertrophic scars or keloid scars, are the result of the body producing too much collagen to repair the damage.
There are various types of scars including fine-line scars, hypertrophic scars, keloid scars, pitted scars and contracted scars (often caused by burns).
What are acne scars?
The simpliest explanation are that acne scars are scars, often found on the face, neck, shoulders and back, that are caused by more severe forms of acne.
Acne scars are caused by inflamed acne pimples or blemishes. These blemishes are the result of skin pores that become overloaded and stuffed with accumulated oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore then bloats beyond its physical capacity resulting in a rupture in the follicle wall.
Shallow follicular injuries are usually inconsequential and will heal rather quickly. Deeper damage to the pore wall can be more serious and create more significant damage. In fact, infected cellular content can overflow into surrounding cells, producing even deeper lesions that spread even further damage.
As with other types of scars discussed about, the skin tissue tries to repair acne lesions by constructing new collagen fibers. These newly created restorative efforts by the skin usually aren’t as uniform or as perfect as the pristine, original skin.

What is PracaSil-Plus?
PracaSil-Plus is a proprietary mixture of scar-healing ingredients created by The Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA). The ingredients found in PracaSil-Plus includes silicones (in a semipermeable polymer network) and pracaxi oil. Parcaxi oil is an oil that contains significant amounts of fatty acids and lipids shown to be beneficial in skin healing and scar reduction. PracaSil-Plus has been found to be very helpful in improving the appearance of scars, including acne scars and keloid scars.
PracaSil-Plus is used as a base in many of the scar treatment creams that Tache Pharmacy compounds.
