We’re here to share what we know — but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider if you have questions.

One of the best things about Curology is that you can get care from a licensed medical provider without having to make an appointment, leave the house, or even put on pants. It’s all done online, and your custom skincare superbottle is delivered to your door. The only downside: due to regulations that differ state by state, Curology isn’t available everywhere. Unfortunately, Curology isn’t currently available in countries other than the U.S.A. either.

We’re ever-growing and want to expand our coverage to as many people as possible, so we’ll continue to keep you posted as things change! But for now, let’s talk telemedicine: how it works, why it has limits, and what the future holds (fingers crossed).

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine, aka telehealth or virtual health, means receiving medical care by a doctor or other healthcare provider without having to go in-person to a doctor’s office. Most often, it’s done through a website (such as Curology) or an app. It’s a revolutionary concept and a rapidly growing industry — and we’re excited to be at the forefront, offering custom skincare with active ingredients, some of which are only available with a prescription.

It can get a little complicated, but the reasons why telemedicine services like Curology aren’t available in some states will vary on a case-by-case basis. As telemedicine services like Curology become increasingly popular and in-demand, we’re optimistic that legislators will respond well to the change, so that services like Curology can be available in more states in the future. Telemedicine makes quality healthcare more accessible and affordable to people who otherwise have a hard time getting the care they need.
