Cystic acne on the cheeks, despite Clinmiskin gel use, requires comprehensive care.


1. Evaluate Current Treatment: Assess the effectiveness of Clinmiskin gel in addressing cystic acne.

2. Addressing Dark Spots: Inquire about options to fade dark spots, such as topical lightening agents or chemical peels.

3. Consistent Skincare Routine: Establish a skincare routine to prevent future breakouts and manage existing acne.

4. Professional Consultation: Dermatologist may recommend other topical or oral medications for cystic acne. Schedule a dermatologist appointment for a tailored treatment plan.

5. Patience for Results: Understand that improvement may take time, and consistent adherence to the treatment plan is crucial.
