Acne Grading: Understanding the Levels of Acne 

Acne is a common skin condition that can affect individuals of all ages. It’s important to understand that acne can vary in severity, from mild cases that may only require basic skincare to more severe forms that may require professional intervention. Acne is often graded based on its severity using a system that includes Grades 1, 2, 3, and 4. Here’s a detailed explanation of each grade: 

Grade 1 Acne: Mild Acne 

Grade 1 acne is considered mild and usually consists of open comedones (blackheads) and closed comedones (whiteheads). These are typically small, isolated lesions that may be occasional rather than continuous. The skin may appear slightly uneven, and there may be minimal inflammation. 

Grade 2 Acne: Moderate Acne 

Grade 2 acne is characterized by a higher number of lesions, which may include papules (small red bumps) and pustules (pimples with pus). These lesions may be more widespread across the face, and the skin may appear visibly inflamed. Grade 2 acne can be more persistent than Grade 1 acne and may require more targeted treatment. 

Grade 3 Acne: Moderately Severe Acne 

Grade 3 acne is more severe and involves a higher number of inflammatory lesions, including larger papules and pustules. Nodules, which are painful, solid lesions beneath the surface of the skin, may also be present. These nodules can contribute to scarring. The skin may appear red, swollen, and inflamed, and the condition can have a significant impact on self-esteem. 

Grade 4 Acne: Severe Acne 

Grade 4 acne is the most severe form, often involving a large number of deep, painful cystic nodules and pustules. This level of acne can cover a significant portion of the face and may also appear on the back and chest. The lesions may be interconnected, leading to the formation of abscesses. Severe inflammation and scarring are common with Grade 4 acne, and it can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. 


Morpheus8 Treatment: Morpheus8, a cutting-edge treatment, combines radiofrequency (RF) technology with micro-needling to effectively address acne and blemishes. The micro-needles create tiny punctures in the skin, while the RF energy targets the underlying layers, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin healing. This treatment helps reduce active acne by reducing sebum production, acne scars, and blemishes while improving overall skin texture. 

Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatment for Acne/Blemishes: 

  • Reduction of active acne and breakouts. 
  • Improvement in acne scars and textural irregularities. 
  • Enhanced skin tone and elasticity. 
  • Minimal downtime and discomfort. 

Microneedling: Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to collagen production and the formation of new skin cells. Microneedling is effective in reducing acne scars, blemishes, and promoting a smoother complexion.
