Cystic acne is a very large type of pimple and Nodular acne is a smaller, red pimple.Large and usually painful nodules are inflamed, pus-filled lesions lodged deep within the skin. Nodules develop when the contents of a comedo (whitehead or blackhead) have spilled into the surrounding skin and the local immune system responds, producing pus.

I have very bad scars from cystic acne. How can I get rid of these scars or discolored marks from the past?

I would suggest you start with a series of Blue Light Therapy if you are still experiencing breakouts regularly. If all that remains is the scaring, then the Red Light Therapy and some products for your daily use at home. The Salicylic cleanser (if you still break out or have clogged pores) Copper Peptide Face Firm will help to repair the discoloration and rebuild the collagen and elastin. The Red Light Therapy will help to correct discolorations or hyperpigmentation of the skin and stimulate collagen synthesis. ...
