Although Ocella is not approved for use in treating acne, healthcare providers can prescribe it "off-label" as an acne treatment. it contains drospirenone(a progesterone hormone that works to counteract the effects of certain "male" hormones (which all women have in low amounts and that may cause acne). Therefore, ocella is likely to help treat acne by working against these male hormones.
