Pros and Cons – Acne Treatments

By ·

The Pros

  • Some medications may be covered by insurance.                                          

 The Cons

  • Some medications cause dryness of the lips and eyes, headaches, depression and increased sun sensitivity.
  • Spironolactone may need to be taken indefinitely to reduce excess oil production, but low doses are considered safe.
  • Oral antibiotics can cause yeast infections, and may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. Antibiotics can also cause sun sensitivity, so it’s important to wear sunscreen during treatment.
  • It can take 12 to 16 weeks to start to notice a difference in your skin
