patient perspectives.

  • I would encourage anyone struggling to not do it alone—seek the expertise of a dermatologist and help them help you!!—Krista B.

  • Finally, last year I went to a dermatologist who I finally felt listened to my concerns and offered the best advice.—Jamie M.

  • I have been to 2 dermatologists and on my 3rd try, I had success! The doctor and the office staff actually took the time to explain to me what kind of acne I was faced with and prescribed something that they think will work! Not just “here is a script and some samples” and not even tell me what to expect! It was a great experience, one that I haven’t had in a long time.—Stephanie B.

  • Acne is fightable, treatable and bearable and if you’re unsure about what you need to do please see a skincare professional—preferably a dermatologist.—Amanda R.
