Types of Acne

Primarily hormonal in nature, acne is a common physical condition that comes in a variety of types.

Comedonal Acne

Also known as non-inflammatory acne, comedonal acne is a mild form of the condition that’s defined by numerous blackheads (or comedones). The comedones are caused by oil, dead skin cells, and environmental factors like makeup, dirt and sweat which collect around the pores and block the follicles.

Inflammatory Acne

If comedonal acne is not treated, it may lead to inflammatory acne. The follicles will become inflamed and red in colour as the body tries its best to combat potential infection of the skin follicle.

Cystic Acne

The most serious form of acne can be recognised by its raised red lumps, which contain fluid caused by white blood cells working to consume the infection established in the blocked skin follicle.

Cystic acne can cause flat or raised post-acne scarring and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), which can add to the uneven texture of the skin.

Stages of Pimple Development and Healing

The full list of pimple and acne development includes:

  • Comedone – Known as a blackhead
  • Closed comedone – Known as a whitehead
  • Papule – A solid elevation or lesion on the skin without visible fluid.
  • Pustule – An elevation or lesion on the skin containing white, yellow or green-ish yellow fluid.
  • Macule – A circular lesion or mark that can alter the skin colour without elevating or depressing it. These are the marks that appear on the skin as acne is beginning to heal. On dark-skinned patients, they are often associated with Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (or PIH).

Acne laser treatment is an involved process, depending on where you are in the stages of development. With our dedicated staff of nurses, doctors, aesthetic physicians and cosmetic clinicians, you’ll be in expert hands throughout your skin laser treatment for acne.
