Treatment Alternatives

Our breadth of experience means that you are not limited to a simple, primary course of treatment if that’s not what you need. We often take patients under care mid-treatment when they are dissatisfied with their previous clinic, or relocate to the UK from abroad. We also have Low Dose/Long Duration (LDLD) protocols available for patients who have already been through a primary course of treatment, and experience a recurrence of acne.

What is Roaccutane (Accutane)?

Accutane is one of the most effective treatments available for adult acne vulgaris. It is a prescription only medicine that helps to dry oil glands and get your active adult acne under control. Roaccutane is appropriate for moderate to severe acne and you must be seen regularly by your botonics doctor during treatment. It is a retinoid derived from Vitamin A and occurs in small quantities naturally in the body. Adult acne has been effectively treated with Roaccutane for over 35 years.

Benefits of Roaccutane (Accutane)

  • When under the professional supervision of an appropriate prescriber, it is perhaps the fastest, most effective and longest-lasting treatment available today for adult-onset acne
  • While the makers of Roaccutane do not claim it to be a cure and we can offer no warranty or guarantee, many patients are effectively cured in the long term, or enjoy several years to permanent relief from acne

Why Go Private with botonics?

Getting a referral from a GP and waiting to see an NHS Dermatologist can take 6 months or more. While it may be cheaper, what is the value to you of enjoying those 6 months free of embarrassing adult acne that saps your confidence and self-esteem? If your acne is causing scarring, then waiting for an NHS appointment may be causing permanent damage. At botonics, no GP referral is required and you are in charge of the pace of your treatment.

Video appointments to see the prescribing doctor and blood tests are generally available within several days, allowing you to have acne treatment quickly and at your convenience. While under the care of your botonics doctor, you can also receive prescriptions for our professional range of skin care products. These products are only available via prescription and can help maintain and improve your skin even after you complete your course of Roaccutane.

Why Not Just Buy Accutane from an Online Pharmacy?

While it is perhaps the most effective treatment available today for adult acne, Roaccutane can have some serious side affects such as damage to internal organs, depression and it can cause birth defects. This is why it is critically important to undertake a course of Roaccutane only under the professional supervision of an experienced doctor, do not buy roaccutane online without a prescription. Horror stories abound about people trying to save a little money by purchasing without a prescription online.

Prescribing the correct dose for you depends on numerous factors such as the severity of your adult acne and your body weight, so self-prescribing causes a real threat to your health. Even if you get the Roaccutane dosage correct, you can never be sure what you’ll get when you order from an online pharmacy. Since it is strictly illegal to dispense Roaccutane without being under the care of a doctor in the UK, by definition if you’re buying online without a prescription, you are purchasing from a company that is already breaking the law. Many online pharmacies sell generic medications or placebos containing chalk/talcum powder or will send you out of date medications.

At botonics, you will receive the blood tests (two included), personal assessments and pregnancy tests necessary to ensure you enjoy the benefits of Roaccutane while safely avoiding any nasty side effects.

What’s Included

The first step toward treatment is a video consultation with your botonics doctor. If assessed to be suitable for treatment, you can either do your first blood test at our lab in Harley Street (out of hours appointments available), or via postal kit. If applicable, you will need to do monthly pregnancy tests. Once all records are in your file, you will be prescribed your first course of Roaccutane subject to your blood and pregnancy tests.

Most courses of Roaccutane last 5 – 7 months during which time the skin may become red and dry. Often, acne becomes a little worse before improvement occurs. Roaccutane (isotretinoin) can cause birth defects. Therefore, it is a requirement that during the 5 – 7 months you will be required to take Roaccutane and for several months after, you do not become pregnant. To learn more about adverse side effects, and precautions during and after treatment, see our section on Roaccutane Client Information.

Treatment includes the following

  • Your initial video consultation and assessment with our experienced prescriber
  • Two blood tests at our lab in Harley Street, or optionally via postal kit
  • Monthly pregnancy tests (if applicable)
  • Regular prescriptions that can be filled at any pharmacy, or optionally filled by our UK registered pharmacy partner directly to your door
  • (For men) 4 assessments with your prescriber during the 5 – 7 month treatment phase
  • (For women) 7 assessments with your prescriber during the 5 – 7 month treatment phase, including monthly pregnancy tests

Price to Buy Roaccutane Treatment

The cost of your Roaccutane treatment is a fixed price. Roaccutane prices, which are all-inclusive of your initial consultation, two blood tests (supplement for postal kits), regular assessments, pregnancy tests (if applicable), taxes and charges, are as follows:

  • £1,200 for men, with three payment plans
  • £1,600 for women, with three payment plans

Cost of Roaccutane Medication

The treatment price does NOT include the cost of Roaccutane, which must be purchased from a pharmacy via prescription. Most patients opt to purchase the medication through our partner pharmacy and benefit from our volume discount and their direct to door service. The dosage prescribed to you will depend partially on your body weight. A rough guide as to the cost (as at July 2023) of Roaccutane based on body weight is approximately £50 per stone of body weight over the course of treatment. For example, a 10 stone client would therefore expect to pay about £500 over the course of 5 – 7 months to the pharmacy for the Roaccutane medication. We have monthly payment plans that include medication and postal kit supplements, so you can spread the cost over 3 or 5 months to make it easier on your budget.

Don’t be Fooled

Many patients transfer in to us from other copycat services once they discover the low prices initially quoted for the pay-as-you-go service quickly add up, or the service is slow and impersonal. You’ve waited long enough and you’re worth it, so why not go with the best service from the start.
