The first step in treating acne is identifying what kind of acne the patient has: cystic, papulopustular, or comedonal. Some patients may have all three types. Treatments may include prescription antibiotics, hormonal blockers, and topical medications. In the most severe cases, we are licensed to prescribe Accutane. If a patient is prescribed Accutane, monthly visits are required along with routine lab work. At Unit Skin Studio, we are uniquely poised to incorporate prescription (only if needed) and non-prescription modalities. We have an amazing non-prescription private acne line that not only fights acne but also addresses the problematic pigmentation left behind*. Chemical peels always help with this condition, and there is always the “emergency savior” an intralesional injection into a cyst to help shrink the lesion almost instantly*.
