Spruce Health uses an app as the form of an acne treatment method to provide people with personalized plans to help improve skin. Rather than having to book a visit with a dermatologist and go to see them in person, the app makes it so that you can simply take a photo of yourself and receive a consultation from a doctor.

Alongside selfies, users of this app are asked to answer a few questions on the conditions of their acne, in order to better inform dermatologists. So far, there are over 10 board-certified doctors to consult with the app, who will provide a custom treatment plan to you within 24 hours. If medication is suggested, the app even makes it so that a doctor can send a prescription to a pharmacy nearby.
