My dermatologist recomended ortho tri cycen lo for acne. If it does clear up acne, how do I go off of it without having the acne return?

In brief: ACNE

The birth control pills are treating the hormonal component of your acne.
Those deep painful bumps that hurt before they come to the surface. I have only seen one product work for this other than hormonal treatments. It is from Europe, and is called Juvasess teens. It inhibits the hormone action on the sebaceous gland. You could start the Juvasess as you stop the birth control.
