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.
