Acne is a very troubling condition which is not confined to youth.
It can strike at any age and those who are in their 30s, 40s or 50s who thought they’d left the problem behind years ago can find it particularly troubling when it returns in later life.
Acne severity is generally classified in 4 stages, defining the extent of the problem.
4 Stages of Acne
- State 1: Mild Acne
This first stage of acne usually consists of a small concentration of pimples and/or blackheads on the skin.
It isn’t usually inflamed and doesn’t occur on a daily basis.
- Stage 2: Moderate Acne
Moderate acne consists of blackheads, pustules, papules and pimples on the skin.
It can happen more frequently and there may be some redness or inflammation around the affected area.
- Stage 3: Moderate to Severe Acne
Third stage of acne is inflamed, with the skin looking red and irritated.
Cysts, papules, and nodules may also be present.
- Stage 4: Severe acne
In the most severe stage, acne becomes extremely painful.
There will be numerous pustules, cysts, papules and nodules in the affected area or on various parts of the body.
