However, due to possible side effects and the potential for bacterial resistance, Annali's dermatologist wouldn’t prescribe her any more. Instead, they decided to try Yaz, a birth control pill thought to help with acne. Unfortunately, in her case, it did the opposite and caused a severe breakout.
When Annali came to our clinic, she felt desperate and out of options. She was skeptical our acne program could help, but her skin responded quickly and within 4 months, her skin was clear. She's been able to control her breakouts with topical skin products - and without medication, antibiotics, or birth control - ever since.
Retention hyperkeratosis causes the pores to fill up with dead skin cells on a daily basis. This condition is best managed with products that prevent the skin cells from accumulating in the first place. Often, when a person stops taking antibiotics, new acne lesions start forming immediately and will appear on the skin's surface in a few months.
Additionally, antibiotics should only be taken for short periods of time and never as a long-term solution. They destroy the gut microbiome leading to a host of other health issues, including dangerous antibiotic resistance.
