Most people do not understand the difference between an Acne Specialist and a Doctor for clearing Acne. Here is an explanation.

Doctors for acne

When you go to a doctor for your acne will get 5 minutes of their time and a prescription drug like an antibiotic, the magic pill (you know the one) or a drug pressure drug spironolactone.

Let us look at the magic pill first. It is designed to suck all the oil out of your skin and body. Acne is not caused by oil. Sorry, doctors. You have to have monthly blood tests for liver damage and everyone has to take birth control because it causes birth defects. You usually take it for 6 months and maybe take it again when it doesn’t work. As a Certified Acne Specialist, I can clear acne in 3-4 months. No dangerous drugs or products are used. Here is a list of the side effects you can expect from this magic pill:

  • dry skin,
  • itching,
  • rash,
  • dry nose,
  • nosebleeds,
  • cracks in the corners of the mouth,
  • dry mouth,
  • dry lips,
  • IBS,
  • depression
  • all kinds of gut issues,
  • long term aches and pains in the joints,


Acne is not caused by bacteria, sorry.

  • digestive problems: nausea, vomiting, indigestion, bloating
  • adverse impact on immunity, good and bad bacteria is killed off and takes months to come back
  • metabolic disorders related to diabetes, obesity
  • oral sores, blister, and ulcers
  • teeth discoloration
  • allergies
  • and worst of all, resistance to antibiotics so if you need them in the future, they will not work well

I am not making any of this up. All of this information is available to you by googling side effects. I won’t even discuss why doctors think spironolactone, a blood pressure drug would ever clear acne.

Acne Specialists

First of all, Certified Acne Specialists are educated, trained and experienced in clearing acne. We are NOT a regular esthetician. Our education is above and beyond esthetic training. We know the cause of acne ( hereditary overgrow of skin cells inside the pore). We treat the cause, not the symptoms and that is why we have a 95% clear rate. We treat acne with specially formulated topicals, diet, and a few life changes. I provide gentle but effective treatments with no downtime. The skin responds to this protocol almost immediately and the skin can clear in 3-4 months. The skin is never dry or flaky because dry skin causes more clogged pores. I treat all kinds of acne: cystic, hormonal, non-inflamed and inflamed. I treat all ages. Acne is NOT just a teenage thing. It can erupt at any age. My treatments and program are holistic and very effective. If you want clear skin, I can give you clear skin. Here is a link describing my Acne Program in more detail.
