Cystic acne is a form of acne that is classified as moderate to severe. A systemic medication is typically prescribed to help with the infection. Women have the ability to use hormonal therapies, such as birth control pills and Spironolactone. However, men are restricted to oral antibiotics to treat cystic acne. In severe cases, Isotretinoin may be required to fight this issue.
Cystic acne is particularly nefarious, because it can lead to permanent scarring if not treated in a speedy fashion. Contact us today if you have noticed cystic acne on your skin. We would be happy to build a treatment plan that is tailored to your skin type and condition.
