You have heard us go on and on about one of our top products, Spironolactone, but what is it? How can it help you get the skin you desire?

Spironolactone is an oral treatment we provide to help with hormonal driven problems such as acne and hair loss. Spironolactone is an anti-testosterone medication that aids in increasing the level of estrogen, and in turn helping with hormone related problems. 

For acne it is provided at a lower dose, in comparison to hair loss where a higher more aggressive dose is provided. For every medication there are side effects to be aware of. Spironolactone is a diuretic, meaning that you must stay hydrated due to the increased loss of water when taking this medication. Water is your best friend if you begin taking this medication, which luckily enough it also plays a role in healthy hydrated skin.

You can learn about Spironolactone and the wide variety of medications created to treat common problems such as acne, hair loss, and wrinkles here at Skintap. Connect with a Board Certified Dermatologists can guide you through finding the best treatment plan for you.
