While we prefer milder treatments and lifestyle changes to treat acne, when possible, severe cases need more aggressive treatment. When a patient presents with significant inflammation or scarring, it's time to rapidly build up our offensive line. Dr. Brown has over 20 years of experience with Accutane and other treatments for acne. She and her Physician Assitant are eager to have a thorough discussion about the pros and cons of each treatment option. Every patient has different needs and goals for their situation, and we only want what is best for you!
Accutane (isotretinoin) is a potent, reliable treatment with consistently great results. It does require a certian amount of moitoring and monthly visits, but the amazing results are worth it! We have a complete handout with additional steps you can take to lessen your side effects during treatment. Dry skin and chapped lips are the biggest complaint, but we can work with that! We are with you step-by-step on this journey to cure your acne.
