Rise in prevalence of acne diseases, unhealthy urban lifestyle, and increase in focus toward good quality skin care products drive the growth of the global acne medication market. On the other hand, side effects associated with acne medications and presence of alternatives for acne treatment restrain the growth.

After the pandemic worsened the global scenario, a number of dermatology clinics were made to close their services, owing to curb the spread. Also, several hospitals and clinics have been transformed into COVID-19 centers.
Moreover, owing to lockdown, many patients have not been able to visit dermatology clinics and pharmacies.
However, telemedicine has now become an appropriate and effective way to offer necessary dermatological services to patients with acne.
