Hi there, I’m 24 years old has been suffering from bad acne about a year ago. I did went to specialist and my skin condition did improved but I don’t really like the way they handle my problem. However, acne come back to me and I am really sad about it. Been taking accutane for months during the treatment but it seems to has side effect if over taking it so I don’t dare to purchase online. I hope to get better skin !

Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding skin condition. Usually, acne can be prevented by avoiding the main cause of breakouts. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Increase in sebum production

  • Infected by bacteria

  • Hormonal problems

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. To receive solutions to your acne problem, the plausible cause needs to be recognized before treatment can be given. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
