New PocketDerm App Lets You Upload Photos To Dermatologist For Professional Acne Treatment

Close

So with all the beauty apps out there, where has this one been all our digital lives?

Meet PocketDerm, the first online prescription acne treatment for your computer or smartphone.

Co-Founders, Board-Certified Dermatologists Nancy Satur and David Lortscher came together to create a unique innovation that fuses technology with the expert skin care advice of a trained medical professional.

"It can take over 6 weeks to get a dermatologist appointment. We created PocketDerm to offer patients a prescription acne solution that's as convenient as non-prescription products like Proactiv," Dr. Lortscher said. "We pair each PocketDerm patient with a dermatologist licensed in their state."

Download the app and skip the need to book appointments or twiddle your thumbs in the waiting room. Sign up and a board certified dermatologist reviews your skin and customizes a skin care regimen just for you online.

"PocketDerm patients begin by signing up and uploading photos. The doctor then customizes a prescription acne treatment, which we formulate in our office and ship directly to the patient's door," Dr. Satur explained.

Acne treatments with PocketDerm typically include a single nighttime cream with multiple prescription ingredients. Should your doctor recommend you go to see a professional in person, you won't be charged.

The app is currently available in 36 states and cost $29.95 for consultations, messaging, and shipments.
