How does acne treatment with Nurx work?

Nurx acne treatment is a one-year care plan for mild and moderate acne, designed in consultation with a board-certified dermatologist with expertise in delivering dermatology care via telehealth. Nurx acne treatment includes an online evaluation by a medical provider licensed in your state, medication prescribed (if medically appropriate) and delivered, a scheduled check-in with the Nurx medical team, and unlimited follow-up with a Nurx medical provider for one year.

To start acne treatment with Nurx, visit the Nurx website or download the Nurx app and fill out a comprehensive online intake, detailing your skin and health history, including photos of your acne. These photos are uploaded directly into your secure Nurx account. 

A trained and licensed member of our medical team will review your health profile and photos and ask any follow up questions in order to confirm that we can safely and appropriately treat you via telehealth and, if so, will create a personalized acne treatment plan that may include topical or oral medications. Our pharmacy will fill the prescription and mail medication to your home. The medication will typically arrive 3-5 days after the prescription is filled. You can view the list of acne medications and prices here.

A Nurx medical provider will check in with you about ten weeks after treatment begins and ask you questions about how treatment is working. If needed, the Nurx provider may adjust the treatment plan. In addition, patients may reach out to our medical team at any time with questions or to request a prescription change.
