If you suffer from acne-whether the occasional or persistent variety-your dermatologist has two new prescription options that may be right for you.
One of the latest acne drugs to receive FDA approval is called Ziana, and this is the first and only topical treatment that contains clindamycin (an antibiotic) and tretinoin (a retinoid). The best part: tretinoin is also the active ingredient in Retin-A, so you’ll also see improvement in fine lines and wrinkles as the medication keeps pimples at bay.
Another new prescription option is Solodyne, an oral antibiotic that is specifically dosed to treat mild to severe cystic acne. What makes Solodyne different than other oral antibiotics is that it is does according to your weight, so you’re sure to be getting just the right amount of medication to treat your acne.
