Birth Control-Induced Acne - Client Success Story


Before coming to our clinic, Hannah (photo below) had worked with a dermatologist for months to get her acne under control. She tried several things to help clear her skin: antibiotics, Retin-A, and various topical prescription products. When nothing worked, her Dr. recommended an IUD (a birth-control implant) in an effort to regulate her hormones and control her skin. 

The IUD didn't work. In fact, it made her skin much worse. Hannah's "before" pictures below show her skin condition when she started our acne program. Her case was unique because other than her IUD, there were no apparent causes of her breakouts - she had no acne triggers in her diet and she wasn't using any acne-causing skin care products. 

Hannah began a topical skincare routine based on a strategic schedule of "active" products and came in for acne treatments every 2 weeks. In just under 3 months, her skin completely cleared up - all without any medications or having to get her IUD removed.

She now uses a simplified skincare routine to keep her skin clear, and her skin has remained
acne-free since 2019.

A note about IUDs: Most of our clients prefer to see if we can make progress with their skin before they go through the process of having an IUD removed. We always start with this approach and have success in the majority of cases.
