Cystic acne fix

This is sometimes a difficult problem. There are multiple methods used to treat acne including lasers, topical and oral medications. If you aren't happy with current therapy, I would seek out another opinion. Prolonged cystic acne can lead to scarring from fat and tissue loss. Accutane is sometimes needed but shouldn't be the first choice of therapy.
