Recently, I had a client who was taking the drug phentermine to help her achieve her weight-loss goals. She had a combination of inflamed and non-inflamed acne for which we had given her an aggressive home care routine. Even though we were treating the acne aggressively and strengthening her home care every two weeks, her skin just wasn’t making any progress. She then decided on her own to stop taking the phentermine. It was amazing how quickly the inflamed acne subsided. Really, within just a few days of stopping, her skin looked completely different. We now are working to clear up the little bit of non-inflamed acne she has left.
Always let us know if you are taking any medication, or start taking any medications while you are working with us. It can make the difference between whether you will get clear skin and not. For a list of medications that can cause acne, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
