We’re here to share what we know — but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider if you have questions.

If you’re a guy with acne, a good skincare routine is one of the best solutions. The problem with skincare products is that, unlike other types of products, it can take some time to see results. That’s why it’s crucial to invest in a skin routine built with effective ingredients that will actually treat your specific acne type.

Enter Curology. Co-founded in 2014 by board-certified dermatologist, David Lortscher, Curology makes prescription skincare more accessible by bringing it online, thanks to the power of telemedicine. Every Curology product is designed by dermatologists to be non-clogging, and every Curology member receives a Custom Formula with a mix of active ingredients chosen by a medical provider for their unique skin concerns. 

Today, we wanted to show you what Curology can do by sharing the skincare journeys of three real patients who saw transformative results.

"I first started to experience acne as a teenager in high school. My struggle with breakouts often left me feeling self-conscious and embarrassed, plus affected my confidence. I tried so many different over-the-counter acne treatments to try and heal my skin, but nothing had a lasting impact.

I found out about Curology by accident—the previous tenant of my apartment had a bottle sent here. I looked it up and decided to start the 30-day trial. Two years later, I’m still using Curology. 

I started to notice a difference in my skin after the first couple of weeks. At the time, I was primarily struggling with hyperpigmentation, and it really helped to even out my skin overall. My favorite part of Curology is how the Custom Formula is an all-in-one with active ingredients catered to my skin’s needs, eliminating the need for many different products."

"I first started to experience acne fresh out of high school. I had very bad breakouts on my forehead and cheeks. My terrible dark spots never seemed to go away. I honestly started to feel down and ugly. I didn’t like taking photos without filters because I hated the way I looked. I tried Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, and some other products, but none of them worked. My acne would go away for a while only to come back.

I’ve been using Curology for a year now and the transformation has been life changing! Within the first six weeks, I noticed a change in my skin. My dark spots have faded dramatically, and my acne has disappeared. I love how Curology is very simple, easy, and personalized just for me! I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you don’t want a lengthy skincare routine, since theirs is a simple 3-step process."

Curology Men's Before And After Results Cystic Acne

"During my last few months of eighth grade, I noticed a few pimples on my left cheek from a posted photo. Since then, my skin went downhill throughout high school and bouts of college. I had pimples on pimples so bad—they would pop and bleed when I lay down on the pillow. 

I tried everything: creams, serums, regimens, toothpaste, honey, steroid injections, you name it! I was losing hope. I didn’t want to go outside, I didn’t want to look into a mirror—I felt like no one would want to look at my face. I was scared it would never go away. When my mom would ask me what I wanted for my birthday, all I would request for was a visit to a dermatologist.

Out of desperation, I finally clicked on that persistent Facebook ad and decided to do Curology’s 30-day trial. I mean, why not? I’d tried everything. My amazing dermatology provider, Berna, guided me, telling me all about the potential highs and lows and helped me manage my acne purging. 

After 3-4 months, I began to see my breakouts lessen, my active lesions calm down, and some hyperpigmentation fade. Three years later, my skin remains far from perfect, but I realized that I didn’t need perfection: all I needed was clarity. 

Curology provided that clarity, not just for my physical skin but also for me as a person. I regained the self-confidence I had lost. I can now look into the mirror and to others with a smile.

And that’s my favorite part about the Curology service: the underlying mission to change lives. I am one of those people whose life was changed, and this is why I will never be ashamed in sharing with others all the great things that Curology has done for me."
