How does skincare treatment with Rory work?

We use telemedicine technology to connect you with a U.S. licensed doctor to provide nightly defense for skincare conveniently and affordably.

It starts with your online doctor visit. Your doctor needs to know about your general health and your skincare concerns.

They also need an unedited photo of you and your ID (that shows your picture and birthdate) so they know who they will be helping. A photo of your face is also helpful to evaluate your skin. They review everything, determine if you’re a candidate for telemedicine and whether treatment is right for you, and if so, they will send you a personalized treatment plan.

Their treatment plan will include a great deal of information about skincare. It is important that you take the time to read it all to be informed and better prepared to take care of your skin.
If you qualify, your doctor will prescribe the right course of treatment to help you take control of your skincare.

What do you prescribe for skincare on Rory?


If appropriate, a Rory-affiliated physician will prescribe a nightly defense prescription cream with active ingredients hand selected to address your skin concerns. These ingredients may include tretinoin, niacinamide, ceramides, vitamin E (acetate), azelaic acid, MAP, and tranexamic acid. If prescribed, you will receive information on ingredients and use in your personalized treatment plan.

What’s in the prescription skincare treatment?

Prescription skincare treatment recommendations can be made with ingredients hand selected by Rory’s board-certified dermatologist. Examples include tretinoin, niacinamide, ceramides, vitamin E (acetate), azelaic acid, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP, a type of vitamin C), and tranexamic acid. There will not be any parabens, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), or formaldehyde in your prescription skincare.

Can I use prescription skincare products with my other skincare products?

The prescription skincare treatment recommended for you may be incorporated into your usual skincare regimen. If you are using other topical prescription medications, make sure to tell your doctor.

When will I start to see improvement with my skin?

The timing of the effects of your treatment will be dependent on many factors, including your specific skincare goals (e.g. reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helping prevent wrinkles, reducing redness, etc.), how severe your symptoms are, how well you tolerate the treatment, and others. It is also important to understand that for certain treatments, your skin may get worse before it gets better. Depending on the treatment you are prescribed, you will receive detailed information on the formulation and what to expect.
