4-Grades of Acne, Understanding Acne

Acne itself can be very complex and everyone's acne is different. That's because there are different types and stages of acne. Acne will even be different at different life periods. But knowing about your acne type, stage, and severity will help you determine the best, most customized treatment for your skin.

Grade I:

This mildest grade of acne consists primarily of blackheads and whiteheads that suffer no inflammation or reddening and are most often seen in adolescents in the nose and forehead.

Grade II:

Moderate acne. Blackheads and whitehead can break out in greater numbers. They can come in larger papules with some appearing as large pustules with slight inflammation getting obvious. The outbreaks now appear on the cheeks, chin and jaw in addition to the nose and foreheads.

Grade III:

Considered severe and is often Grade II left untreated and made to worsen by squeezing the pimples and maintaining the oily dirty face that attracted those bacteria at the onset. The main difference now is the level of inflammation with the skin suffering Grade III acne exhibiting more profuse reddening and a greater number of inflamed papules and pustules. This is the grade when infection spreads and becomes deeper and the risk of scarring gets highest.

Grade IV:

The most serious and is Grade III left untreated. The condition is medically referred to as nodulocystic or cystic acne where the skin displays numerous pustules, papules, pustules, with large cysts. There is severe inflammation and pain as cystic acne is very painful. Often the infection spreads beyond the face and into the Neck, shoulders and upper arms. The deep infection makes scarring inevitable and may even require cosmetic surgery after to restore a decent looking skin.

Mathew. Agreed, this can be complicated. Especially to navigate treatments. Adult Acne is a thing, it does happen to a lot of people. Do some research on “adult acne”to get a better understanding. There are several triggers to set off adult acne; your’s could be hormones. You really have to pay attention to your lifestyle to see what sets it off. Please visit our contact us page and use the form and let me know what product you are interested in and i will send you a sample. Your focus should be frequent cleansing, with BPO medication and exfoliation. Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck, i wish you the best.

Complicated disease. Never had it as a kid, but now, as a full grown adult all of a sudden, i have acne on my forehead and chin. Any advice? i was looking at your benzoyl scrub? I have tried Proactiv, i worked for a while but does nothing now.
