The truth about Acne

While adult acne is common, it can still be a source of distress for those affected, and it is always recommended to seek medical advice if you are experiencing acne or any other skin condition.

What causes Acne?

Although acne is prevalent among young adults, it is not uncommon for people to experience flare-ups later in life. Hormonal changes are the leading cause of acne and can occur during teenage years, menstrual cycles, pregnancy or stressful circumstances.

What are the symptoms of Acne?

The most common symptoms associated with acne include inflammation, bumps, pimples and swelling. If left untreated, acne can also lead to acute tenderness and scarring.

How can medication help stop Acne?

Medications can stop acne by addressing the underlying causes of the condition. For example, topical antibiotics work by killing the bacteria that can contribute to acne, while topical retinoids work by unclogging pores, reducing inflammation, and promoting skin cell turnover. Oral antibiotics work similarly to topical antibiotics, but they are able to reach bacteria that are deeper in the skin. In addition to treating acne, some medications can also prevent scarring and hyperpigmentation associated with the condition.

Treatment plans.

All of our treatment plans come with free delivery and unlimited support with your doctor that can help to tweak your treatment to best suit you. You can pause, cancel or reorder at any time.
Topical Minoxidil 5%
Non-prescription Minoxidil helps regrow hair or slow the rate of hair loss. It comes as a liquid, foam or shampoo.
Oral Prescriptions
Taken as a daily pill, oral medication slow hair loss, and may encourage new hair growth.
Combination treatments
A doctor can evaluate your condition with these 2 treatment options in conjunction with each other.

What to expect

1-2 months: Save it
There will likely be no visible change in the first 2 months. This is temporary & normal.
3-6 months: Regrow it
At this point, it may become noticeable that hair loss has slowed or stopped, or in some cases even reversed. Continue to take photos to track your progress.
6 months and beyond
By now, hair loss may have considerably slowed or stopped, and some people may see signs of regrowth (usually at the crown of the head). Consistent daily treatment is required to maintain results and increase the chance of regrowth.

Patients love using Rosemary.

See how healthcare with Rosemary feels better.

Great service!

Rosemary health is a lifesaver!! My skin became really bad during lockdown and I became desperate! After filling out the survey and uploading photos I received a response from the doctor within a few hours and my script was sent the next day. Two months later my skin is looking amazing! I have come across a couple of small problems with the service (such as the use of the patient portal) but they always reply to my emails very quickly and are helpful in coming up with a resolution.

I would 100% recommend this service to anyone!

What an experience

What an experience. For years I’ve suffered with acne and have visited dermatologists and GP’s with no avail, however Rosemary Health has changed all that. They’re prompt in their response timeframe, give advice on medication, diet and which products to use that is applicable to my specific skin requirements. It has changed my life and best of all I didn’t need to leave my house!

Time saving wonder

I received an acne treatment and I loved the fact that you could do it online. This is something I just simply wouldn't have had the time for at the doctors. I also like the fact that you could message the doctor directly and she told me exactly how to incorporate my skin routine with the treatment. Thanks, guys!

Brooke

So happy!

Not only amazingly convenient but what I have been prescribed for my skin ACTUALLY works! The process was really simple and involves detailed questionnaires so that GP has a full understanding of your needs. I’ve never had this type of care with a regular GP. Highly recommend!

Frequently asked questions.

How much does it cost?

To get started, there’s a one-off $40 fee. This fee covers a 15 minute video call with the doctor online. It also comes with free and unlimited follow ups with your medical team after.

If you are eligible for treatment, you can purchase treatments on Rosemary Health. The exact cost of treatment plans vary depending on the medication prescribed. All plans include free discreet delivery, and automatic refills (you can pause or cancel anytime)

When will I see results?

Unfortunately, great skin won’t magically happen overnight. Whether using anti-ageing or acne treatment, prescription skincare generally takes 8-12 weeks before results are visible. In the case of acne, it may get a little bit worse before it gets better, too.

Look at some of our success stories to see what you can expect in the coming months.

Can I use Rosemary for severe acne?

We recommend that extreme cases are referred to a dermatologist. We unfortunately don’t currently have this capability.

What happens if my skin reacts to the acne treatment I’ve been prescribed?

Once treatment is prescribed, you'll get detailed information about potential side effects and dosage. It’s important that you’re well informed and 100% comfortable with the medication.

If you experience side effects throughout the course of your treatment, you can connect to your doctor through your Rosemary Patient Portal to discuss and explore alternatives. We offer unlimited ongoing aftercare & chat support throughout your treatment.

Can I adjust how often I receive my prescription?

We’ve designed our shipping cycles around how often most members need refills, but we’ve all got our own routines. Running out? Move up your shipment date. Leftovers? Push your shipment date back. Pause or cancel at any time.

Can I speak to my doctor at any time?

Our team of dermatology trained doctors are experts in acne, fine lines, dark spots, skin texture, and more.

40-70% reduction in acne lesions in patients undergoing retinoid treatment for at least three months

Clinically-proven treatment that works.

Our doctors prescribe Australia-approved acne treatments that are effective and can’t be found over-the-counter.

There are several prescription treatments available for acne that can be effective in treating moderate to severe acne. Here are some examples of commonly prescribed medications:

  1. Topical retinoids: These are vitamin A derivatives that work by preventing the formation of new acne lesions and promoting cell turnover to unclog pores. Examples include tretinoin, adapalene, and tazarotene.
  2. Topical antibiotics: These medications work by killing acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Examples include clindamycin and erythromycin.
  3. Combination therapy: This involves using a combination of topical medications, such as a retinoid and an antibiotic, to target multiple causes of acne.
  4. Oral antibiotics: These medications work by killing acne-causing bacteria from within the body. Examples include doxycycline, minocycline, and tetracycline.
  5. Hormonal treatments: These are commonly used for females with acne related to hormonal changes. The most common hormonal treatment is birth control pills, which regulate hormone levels.
  6. Isotretinoin: This is a powerful medication used to treat severe acne that has not responded to other treatments. It works by reducing the size of the oil glands in the skin and decreasing inflammation. This cannot be prescribed by a GP but we can provide a referral to a dermatologist.

Your GP can determine which medication or combination of medications is best for you based on your individual needs and medical history.

The condition acne vulgaris is most successfully managed through a prescribed topical treatment, a daily skincare routine and, in some cases, with oral antibiotics.
