Isotretinoin, the medicinal component in Clarus, is part of a class of drugs called retinoids, which are substances related to vitamin A. Isotretinoin is the most potent inhibitor of sebum (natural oil) production and is used in Clarus to treat the most severe types of acne.
Doctors prescribe this medication for patients who have not responded to other acne treatments like benzoyl peroxide or antibiotics. Clarus helps to treat severe forms of acne like nodular and/or inflammatory acne, acne conglobata and recalcitrant acne.
Isotretinoin works in several ways to treat severe acne. This medication reduces the size of the skin’s oil glands and greatly reduces the amount sebum (oil) production. Since the oil is decreased, the bacteria which live in the sebum is reduced. Isotretinoin also has anti-inflammatory properties. Finally, the production of skin cells inside the pores is reduced which helps prevent pores from becoming clogged.

A pimple is a small pustule caused by a combination of oil, clogged pores and bacteria. Acne is a broader term ranging from very mild to severe acne. When acne becomes severe, symptoms include large, pus-filled lesions (cystic acne) or hard inflamed bumps (nodular acne). Acne can occur on the face chest or back and can lead to scarring. Acne is most common among teenagers with a prevalence of over 70 percent. Hormones, especially androgens, can trigger the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum in both men and women. While not life-threatening, acne can be upsetting and cause psychosocial problems. The good news is that there are many effective treatments available which can prevent potential permanent scarring and raise self esteem.
