Isotretinoin (Accutane)

Curology doesn’t prescribe isotretinoin, which requires in-person care. For this reason, we also can not accept patients who are currently taking isotretinoin. 

Isotretinoin is an acne-fighting pill for people with severe, treatment-resistant acne. (“Accutane” was the original brand name for isotretinoin; even though this brand is no longer available, the name is still commonly used.)

Patients who are prescribed isotretinoin must be seen in person by their dermatologist and must be monitored with blood tests (and pregnancy tests, when applicable).

For this reason, we don’t prescribe isotretinoin at Curology.

Most in-person dermatology practices prescribe isotretinoin to select patients who do not see improvement with other prescription treatments. To inquire about this treatment, we encourage you to find a board-certified dermatologist near you at
