Dianette contains two active ingredients that have been shown to treat acne. It is usually prescribed to people with hormonally induced acne that have tried other methods such as antibiotics without success. The contraceptive element of Dianette helps users to regulate their periods and also reduce the symptoms of PMS.
Dianette contains the active ingredients cyproterone acetate and ethinylestradiol. Cyproterone acetate is a synthetic progesterone that reduces the level of male hormones, working to combat the development of acne and abnormal hair growth known as hirsutism.
Cyproterone acetate works as an anti-androgen, meaning it’s a hormone that works against male sex hormones. When produced in high levels, these can cause the glands responsible for acne (sebum glands) to work overtime. When the sebum glands produce too much oil they can easily collect dead skin cells and dirt from the environment, causing blocked glands and leading to spots. When the glands become infected the infection can also spread to other areas of the face, causing further spots and infection.
Aside from the synthetic progesterone Dianette also contains an artificial oestrogen. This combination creates a hormone level like during pregnancy, so the body reacts to avoid a second pregnancy. This includes hindering the growth of a new egg and ovulation, as well as inhibiting a thickening of the womb lining, so a fertilised egg could not be lodged in for development. The process also thickens the cervical mucus, so sperm is unable to enter the womb.
