In brief: Almost certainly!
Unfortunately, most doctors feel that proactive is not particularly helpful for managing acne, despite their very impressive commercials! see a board-certified dermatologist with experience in managing acne for the best results.

In brief: Depends on severity
There may not be much difference for mild acne but moderate or severe acne is probably better treated by prescription.
