Severe inflammatory acne is the most serious form of acne vulgaris. What makes it different is the degree of inflammation associated with it. There will be the usual pimples of acne, but there will also be nodules and cysts. The blemishes can feel deep and be painful. The symptoms of severe acne include widespread blemishes over a significant part of the body, the skin appears red and inflamed, the pimples are deep and painful, there may be scarring, and all the over-the-counter products you’ve tried haven’t improved your skin. The Dana Point Isotretinoin doctor has some good news for you. There is a medication that can treat severe acne: Isotretinoin.
When other treatments fail to clear the skin, the Dana Point Isotretinoin doctor may prescribe Isotretinoin. Treatment with isotretinoin often results in prolonged clearance of acne, which can be permanent for some patients. Our doctors will tailor the treatment to each patient, but the standard course of one treatment takes about 4-5 months. Due to possible side effects, only your doctor can prescribe this medication. Do not take this medication if you are pregnant. Patient safety is a dermatologist’s first concern. If this medicine is an option for you, our team will talk with you about how to take this medicine safely and what you can expect. We will jointly decide whether this medicine is right for you. If isotretinoin is an appropriate treatment for you, you will be under close medical supervision while you take this medicine. For more information, call Advanced Dermatology today.
