New Smartphone Acne Consultation

May 5, 2014

Send derm a ‘selfie’ and get custom products.

PocketDerm, a new program allowing acne sufferers across the US to “see” a dermatologist online, recently rolled out nationwide. The dermatologist creates a custom-tailored acne  treatment containing ingredients available only with a doctor’s prescription, and the product is  delivered right to the patient’s home.
 
The user completes a questionnaire, snaps and selfie and for $29.95 a month can get tailored skin care. A dermatologist reviews the file and prescribes a customized acne formula.  The custom-tailored product is formulated in-house with prescription  ingredients such as tretinoin and azelaic acid, and arrives at the patient’s  doorstep within a few days.
 
Each patient is paired with a licensed dermatologist, allowing the doctor to monitor the patient’s improvement and fine-tune their regimen as treatment progresses.
 
PocketDerm membership is priced at an all-inclusive $29.95 per month – this includes the product, shipping, and dermatologist consultations. And it comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.
