Reducing Acne Lesions Can Reduce the Risk of Acne Scarring1
We examined the role early treatment of acne with Epiduo® Forte (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel, 0.3%/ 2.5% played in helping to prevent acne scar formation.1
Scarring Can Occur at Every Level of Acne Severity2,3
28% of patients with almost clear skin or mild acne experienced scarring3
Almost Clear to Mild Acne
A few scattered comedones and a few small papules; easily recognizable; less than half of the face involved. Some comedones, papules, and pustules.1
51% of patients with moderate acne experienced scarring3
More than half of the face is involved. Many comedones, papules, and pustules. One small nodule may be present.1
77% of patients with severe acne experienced scarring3
Entire face is involved. Covered with comedones, numerous papules, and pustules. A few nodules may or may not be present.1
