In brief: Yes
Birth control use is effective at reducing and in some cases eliminating acne.
Desogestryl, the progestin component in your pill is one of the preferred, low androgenic drugs that one would see the best response with. Using it continuously without breaks or cycles is the most effective mode of treatment.
