Does Proactiv work on cystic acne?
Well sadly, no !
Cystic acne is generally unresponsive to topical treatments.
As Proactiv is a topical treatment for mild or moderate types of acne, it doesn’t work for severe type like cystic acne.
And always remember the high risk of scarring with this condition, so if you’re having cystic acne, you MUST see a dermatologist. He will be the only one that will find the good treatment that will help you get rid of cystic acne.
