and how long does it take to see any improvement?
16 May 2011
Yes, Sprintec can improve hormonal acne.
Birth control pills are often prescribed for acne especially if your acne is hormone related - that is due to an excessive production of androgens.
Birth control pills can suppress androgen production and improve acne.
There are several brands of birth control pills that are specifically approved by the FDA to treat acne but most experts agree that low-dose contraceptives improve acne regardless of which brand is used.
Results are not immediate and you may need to wait for several cycles before noticing any improvement.
All the best.
