Before Apostrophe, my skin was at the worst it’s ever been. After a month of treatments, my skin had dramatically changed! I have been using Apostrophe for 2 years and it was the best decision I have ever made. If anyone is thinking about using Apostrophe I definitely recommend it!

I’ve been struggling with my acne for about five years. Being quarantined brought along stress that took a toll on my skin. Not having access to an in-person dermatologist, I found Apostrophe! I am reaching a content state with my skin again and that has played a huge role in my skin journey!

When I turned 28, I developed acne for the first time in my life. I came across a testimonial about Apostrophe. I went to their site and within days I had a treatment plan and prescription sent to me. My face cleared up almost immediately, and 4 months later it’s completely clear and glowing!

After attempting to manage my adult acne on my own, I decided to try Apostrophe. 8 months into my treatment plan, I never had more flawless skin in my life. No more painful acne or horrific flare ups. I finally feel beautiful make up free!

I was able to see a doctor immediately and was given prescriptions right away, a few days later they arrived in the mail and a few months later my skin has truly never been better. I’m so thankful and grateful to them!

FAQs


What medications can I get from Apostrophe?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Apostrophe offers access to a variety of topical and oral medications for the treatment of acne. Once you complete your online visit and your dermatology provider reviews your information, if eligible, they will prescribe medications they believe will be most effective for your skin. The most commonly prescribed medications are the following:

Eyelash:

Eyelashes are treated with authentic Latisse®, the only FDA-approved treatment to grow lashes thicker and longer.

Hair:

Hair loss is treated with finasteride (generic Propecia), the only FDA-approved prescription treatment for male pattern baldness.


What conditions does Apostrophe address?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Apostrophe dermatologists can treat visually diagnosable conditions such as acne, rosacea, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, melasma, sparse eyelashes, and male pattern baldness.


Am I guaranteed a prescription medication with my visit?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Although we cannot guarantee that you will receive a prescription, most of our patients do. If you are interested in a specific medication, let your dermatologist know during your virtual visit and they will take this into account when creating your personalized treatment plan and decide whether or not you are a good candidate for that medication. If your doctor decides they are unable to treat you, we will provide a full refund.


Can I still be treated by Apostrophe if I’m pregnant or trying to get pregnant?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Yes, all of our treatment plans are developed for a specific patient. Whether you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or breastfeeding, you have the ability to report this to your treating physician and they will develop a treatment plan safe for you.


How are Apostrophe topical medications different from generics?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Apostrophe topical treatments are custom-compounded medications that have been carefully formulated in combinations that are not available commercially. 

They are delivered in moisturizing creams or lotions that are cosmetically elegant and purposefully formulated to minimize skin irritation. 

They have been intentionally formulated to avoid fragrances, alcohol, dyes, unnecessary plant extracts, and certain allergenic preservatives. 

At Apostrophe Pharmacy, all active and inactive ingredients have been carefully considered and their exact counterparts are not available in a generic form.


How long does it take to see results?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Acne treatment truly is a skin journey. Acne treatments take time to work. While minimal improvement may be noted in the first 2 months of treatment, results really start to kick in during the third month of treatment and beyond. While those with milder acne may experience rapid improvement, moderate-to-severe acne typically takes about 6-9 months (or longer) to clear.  

Acne medications work best in combination. Topical medications are the cornerstone of acne treatment. If your provider has recommended a topical medication which you haven’t started, you will likely experience suboptimal improvement. 

We encourage you to keep up with your treatment plan and be as consistent as possible. If you don’t see any improvement after two months, you can submit a follow-up visit with your dermatology provider at any time. As a reminder, any visit costs are applied to future prescription orders. 


Can I use my other skin care products (such as acne washes, masks, serums, toners) with my treatment plan?

Caret iconBlack upwards facing triangle to reference things above or scroll to the top of page.

Unless a product type is specifically recommended by your provider in your treatment plan, you should avoid using it since it may cause unnecessary irritation. Your prescription medications are much more important and effective. Once you are tolerating your prescription medications easily and your breakouts are under control, you can slowly add other skincare products back into your routine if you like.
