“I really enjoy prescribing Isotretinoin for patients with severe acne because it significantly changes their lives for the better. With proper management, the course of therapy is tolerable and can have such a positive impact. In the same vein, I find injecting people with Botox for hyperhidrosis rewarding because it greatly improves the quality of life for my patients. There are no other treatments for severe hyperhidrosis that are as effective and tolerated.”
