Prescriptions for acne
Evidence-based Medical treatments
Skincare products on their own might not be enough to bring acne under control, so spending time and money trying to switch up your routine again and again may only be delaying effective medical treatment.
Prescription therapy for acne comes in several different forms. There are topical agents (creams and gels), such as retinoids, and oral treatments, such as the combined oral contraceptive pill, antibiotics and specialised options, such as isotretinoin (Roaccutane) and spironolactone.
