Acne treatment can be expensive. Here is a new combination that may help decrease the costs of treating acne. A new study shows that a new cream plus a pill may help the best. This new medicine contains adapalene with benzoyl peroxide. The especially effective regimen is this cream WITH doxycycline (antibiotic) pill.
A study showed that after completing 24 weeks of therapy, patients with “severe acne” had a “clear or almost clear” rate of 50% as well as a mean 76% reduction in total lesion count.
In addition, patient satisfaction surveys showed 87% would use the above regimen again, 76% were satisfied with treatment, and best of all . . . 67% feel better about themselves since starting treatment.
Pretty good numbers. . . especially when treating teens.
