GRADE 1 Mild Acne Grade 1 Acne

This is the least severe form of acne. It's characterized by occasional pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads that appear mainly on the face. The breakouts are usually not inflamed, and there's minimal, if any, discomfort. Many people experience this form of acne, especially during adolescence. Good skincare routines, including regular cleansing and medical-grade acne treatments, can control Grade 1 acne.

Grade 4 acne, also known as cystic acne, is the most severe form of the condition. It's characterized by numerous large, painful, inflamed nodules and cysts, which can lead to significant scarring. This type of acne can affect large areas of skin and can be resistant to over-the-counter treatments. It's important to seek help from a dermatologist, who may recommend treatments such as oral antibiotics, hormonal treatments, or isotretinoin (a powerful acne medication), together with a strict routine using targeted medical-grade product formulations.
