No matter your age, acne is frustrating. For some, once one set of pimples and bumps go away, more crop up the next day. It can be a vicious cycle for those who haven’t found the right treatment.

Severe acne (cystic or nodular acne) is classified as painful breakouts deep in the skin. If left untreated, it can cause permanent scarring. You are most likely to have severe acne in your teens or early 20s on your face, chest, back, upper arms and shoulders.

Isotretinoin, more commonly referred to as Accutane, is one of the most effective treatments for severe types of acne.

Severe cystic acne is more common in men, but women often have cysts on the lower half of their face.
