There are three distinct types of acne, ranging from mild to severe:
- Comedonal acne is the mildest form and consists of whiteheads (closed comedones) and blackheads (open comedones).
- Inflammatory acne is a moderately severe form that consists of pink bumps (papules), and pustules (pink bumps with white pus).
- Cystic acne is the most severe form and causes large, painful, swollen, deep red bumps that may heal with scarring. Our cosmetic dermatology experts offer acne scar treatment and skin rejuvenation services, including laser treatment and scar revision, for any existing scars or red or brown spots.
